The secret of my success



Lots of cash

A huge house

A satisfying relationship

To have the kind of life that you’re convinced everyone else wants.

You think



And your thoughts, dreams and breaths just take flight and grow into brilliance.

You can’t define with words but you “just know” success is out there and you are destined to run into it.

It will know you when it sees you

And in a “where have you been all my life” moment, it will embrace you.

Holding  each other you will breathe deeply, in and out and just know that this is the moment you have waited for.

This is the moment you became “Successful”.

I’m not interested in telling you what to feel.

If you are convinced that this is your path, then have at it.

It’s not mine.

And even though it’s not my path I can honestly say that success is of critical importance to my life.

I just define it differently.

My definition leads me not to a point in time but rather to a series of perpetual moments.

Some are pointed and connected and others have nothing to do with each other.

While my version of success may not be grandiose it serves my life well

In my world success is simply making and keeping commitments.

If I commit to working out at the gym today and I do it, I have been successful.

If I commit to working out at the gym today and I make an excuse or blame my circumstances I fail.

Is there one small commitment you can make and keep today?



Compassion defined…

Compassion is



of others’ distress,

with a desire to alleviate it.

Someone in your life needs compassion today.

Perhaps you are legitimately busy…

Maybe you need to forgive that person for something before you can offer full compassion.

Does the definition “sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it” feel new to you?

I hope so.

The reason I hope so is that my guess is that you will see compassion as something that your world needs more of and you will realize that you posses an infinite reservoir of it.

Look for dry land…

Turn on the sprinkler, that those in your world would run free in the compassion you have to offer and find attention and healing.

“Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.”      Albert Einstein
