Success, what a confusing concept! Its meaning is different to each of us. Primarily shaped by media and what we see from others. Perhaps inauthentic and egocentric!

What does success mean to you?

There are many motivational speakers, articles and videos telling us how to go out and look for the keys to success.  We convince ourselves that there are secret ways, hidden tools, a magic formula, only known to a selected few.  After all why do some people seem to have it and others don’t?

So we put on our best suit, pack ourselves a lunch bag and set off.  An explorer of life, searching for personal power and love.  Searching for our destiny.  Looking towards the sun, stars and universe to expose the answers.  Sadly, failing to see that which is right in front of us.

Just like explorers we may spend so much energy and time looking outwards at the sun, that we miss one blatant fact.  That just like the earth whose inner core is nearly as hot as the surface of the sun, what we seek is actually within us.


So I’ll ask you again, what does success mean to you?  Have you found your personal power? And if so where?

What possibilities would open up for you if you put your focus and energy to harness the power within?

Worth a thought don’t you agree?

PS. This article was inspired by a young man called Tumo who attended an EQ course I ran. I just loved his thinking and was so moved by this epiphany he had on the course.  Thankyou Tumo, I will forever remember the sparkle in your eyes when you shared this.
