How we perceive and interpret our success is more important than how
much success we actually have.
It’s all a matter of perspective.
On one hand,
if we define our success on other people’s terms, beating ourselves up because
we haven’t won the trophy running their race, then we’re going get
ensnared in the infinite regression of comparison and resentment.
scientifically speaking, sucks.
It’s like drinking the poison and waiting for
somebody else to die.
On the other hand, if we accept that success has already
happened to us, that we’ve already made it, but we’re just a little too close
to ourselves to realize that, then maybe we could actually admit that we’re not
doing as poorly as we thought.
There’s a great question my mentor once taught
me, as a useful mantra for reinforcing prosperity, abundance and completeness:
What if you knew that nothing was missing right now?
Imagine that. True
enoughness. Which is a hard thing to comprehend when you’re still in the thick of
it. Truly stepping back and objectively looking at your career and what success
really means, that requires massive amounts of compassion and acceptance.
it’s a worth a shot. And it’s a hell of a lot better than the alternative.
Sometimes we have to believe the truth about ourselves, no matter how
beautiful it is.
