True Success

I did it my way -Frank Sinatra

What is a successful life?

Success, I believe, is living your life in your own way. It means doing what you love.

Money comes when you do what you love because you will do this one thing with passion.

Your passion gives you courage and persistence in the face of all obstacles.

Even if you lack the skills to do what you love, your passion will drive you to learn those skills. And when you acquire them, you'll do them better than anyone else.

In Sanskrit, this pursuit of your right work is called "dharma."

In fact, in the ancient holy books of India, it was advised that it was better to do your own work poorly than to do the work of another well.

When you come from a place of love, you create something of beauty in the world. Your love expressed is passion.

Our souls crave beauty, for it is our truth; and in our truth, we find our meaning.

A value that is derived from a concern other than our own is a false value. It is false not because there is anything wrong with it, but because it does not stir us. Eventually, we will resent spending time on what we do not love.

Much of the unhappiness that I see in business is because people do work that they do not love. They work for the money and because they come from that place of self-denial, they never make enough of it.

When you come from your own power, then everything flourishes. Yet you can't connect with that power unless you do what you love.

How do you find the work that you love?

You go within and you dream, and if you are bold, your dream will surface before you in brilliant colors like Aphrodite rising from the sea.

How do you bring your dream to life?

By dreaming with open eyes in the bright light of day, you open the way to miracles.
