Success is a Journey, Not a Destination

r2g-p1-ai6-Yoga-webThere’s a mystique around “being successful.” When you look at people who are achieving their goals and contributing fully to the world around them, it’s tempting to believe a secret superpower is responsible. Or that there’s some kind of “success gene” at work that passed you by.

Success isn’t one big life-changing moment. We have grown accustomed to seeing movies and reading articles about high-performers who have achieved amazing things, and they all seem to have this one moment when everything changed.

That’s just storytelling. Real life doesn’t have set beginnings and endings, with a major climax and breakthrough in the second act. In real life, success isn’t a single superstar event. It’s a path, a journey—a habit of unflinching commitment to a few simple disciplines.

What are some of the disciplines of success?

  • Being grateful for all that you already have—and have already achieved.
  • Setting reasonable, achievable goals.
  • Creating a baby step plan.
  • Training yourself to take the next right action again and again.
  • Respectfully and diligently course-correcting along the way.
  • Facing your fears with honesty and compassion—and pressing on with courage.
  • Celebrating your progress, however small.

What are your disciplines of success? What habits can you strengthen, what steps can you take, to help you manifest even more success in your life?

Because each new habit, each change of perspective, every goal you set, every milestone you achieve can be the difference between a life of limitation and disappointment or one of abundance and fulfillment.

About djwlifecoach

As a retired board-certified coach, author and Reiki master teacher, I continue to share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. What's love got to do with minimizing stress and getting unstuck? Everything! My book, "Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life!" (Hay House/Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world's largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll. My recovery from burnout, including a sustained 80-pound weight loss and freedom from 10 years of debilitating depression, led to finding my purpose sharing hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. Through healing and self-exploration, I discovered that loving yourself unconditionally is the key to transforming your personal life, your work and the world. With attention and intention, I learned to live in alignment with love through a wealth of energy-shifting tools and techniques that help me reduce stress, anxiety and overwhelm by releasing limiting beliefs, emotions and habits. My books, blog and radio episodes help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness.

I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my husband, Wilson, and the coaching cats who manage my life—SiddhaLee and Maisy Jane.
