"There is little success where there is little laughter."
Success, all of us want it, but what exactly is it? I guess it depends on who you ask. Some will quickly define success in monetary terms. Their definition of success is basically how much they currently have and how much more they can get. Constantly seeking to get more and have more, they equate success with dollar signs. And that's fine.
Then there are others who view success from a much more rounded perspective. These people not only want to have more, they want to be more. They want to BE better, DO better, and FEEL better. And while these folks readily acknowledge there is nothing wrong with having or wanting money or nice things, they never lose sight of the fact that there is much more to life than just acquiring more stuff.
"There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way."
There will always be people who contend that acquiring material possessions is the name of the game. And that's OK. Let them chase their own pot of gold. Maybe they'll get there, maybe they won't.
I'd rather bet on a sure thing. And that's the richness of life itself. To me, the people we meet and the relationships we develop, the wonderful times we share with others and the happiness we have and hold within are the best things in life.
Best of all, we don't have to search far and wide to discover life's most priceless possessions. They are everywhere we look, everywhere we turn; on every corner, in every locale. All we need to do is reach out and grab them - and make them ours.
"Find your happiness in yourself."
How do you spend the majority of your time? Are you desperately trying to have more - or persistently striving to be more? Are you forever chasing the proverbial pot of gold, trying to get rich - or are you taking another approach, enriching yourself from the inside out?
Rather than focusing on grabbing as much money as you can, maybe you should focus on grabbing the best things in life instead. By making the most of every moment, living and loving life to the hilt, you will not only be happier and healthier, something else also occurs; something unexpected, something truly amazing.
You will become a whole lot wealthier as well.
"Success is not a destination; it is a journey."
Sometimes we get so wrapped up in pursuing the almighty dollar that we lose sight of what we're really after. And that's living a life we love, a life filled with fun, a life chock full of joy and happiness. A vibrant, enriching, enchanting life we've all dreamed of living.
It's not really the money we're chasing, but what we believe the money can buy us. After all, a big pile of money on the floor isn't really worth anything at all. It's just a pile of paper. It's what the money can buy that has value.
Yet the best things in life cannot be bought with all the money in the world.
Some of the happiest people on earth own few worldly possessions. Considered poor by much of the world, they are anything but. They love their lives, they cherish each day as a golden gift from God. By passionately living each day to its fullest, they have discovered life's true pot of gold. And so should we.
The moment you start spelling success as h-a-p-p-i-n-e-s-s, you'll start enjoying all the success you can ever hope to handle.
The Bottom Line: Life the life you love and you'll love the life you live.
