Life Lessons From Your Soul - Success

Have you ever really examined success? There are many definitions of what being successful means. On the personality level, it typically refers to someone who does everything the 'right' way and makes a lot of money doing it. Sometimes, it just means the person makes a lot of money.

Recently, I attended a workshop on success where each person got to write out their definition of success. It was a great exercise to think about what I feel being successful means. It certainly included the earth school requirement of money and living well but that was not the defining measure of success to me.

To me, being successful requires being the best person I can be. It comes down to integrity, truth and being of service to others who may be in need of the very kind of help I provide. It means being a wayshower in the raising of the consciousness of humanity.

As I looked at my definition, I saw that many of the people who are regarded as highly successful in our world, actually are not to me. I felt that if people were taking advantage of one another, lieing, stealing, bullying and cheating to get their tons of money then they had money but not success.

It was a wonderful examination that led me to feel more successful than I ever had because I am doing all the things that being successful requires to me. The abundance to keep being the success I am will follow - it always has and I trust it always will.

What is your definition of success? Are you a successful, evolving soul living in successful partnership with your personality? Post a comment. Let me know.

My dear witchie sister: Sometimes I know I am seen as successful by others standards - but not mine.
Oh well - my life lesson is to keep on trying.
Love, Carla

Hi Meg,
For me, being successful means being in alignment with my heart and what my soul desires most. Then, like you said, everything falls into place and abundance, joy, peace, and love follows. Thank you for asking the question so that we may ponder the answers!

Great blog post! I love pondering the meaning of success. At times I feel like I’m on a bungee cord. One day I’m on top of the world, believing in myself....and then I let doubt creep in because my success doesn’t look like what others define as success.

It’s a challenge and a fun one at that. I love embracing every opportunity I have to remind myself how fabulous I am and how my life rocks!!

Thank you my dear friend Meg for being a light on my path, and for constantly holding the light on me….reminding me of who I am.
