Sometimes I need to be reminded that I may
be in the midst of my success, rather than
working towards it, or seeking it. I am sure,
I am not alone in my misconception of what
success actually is, and how it will arrive in
The other confusion, is related to what aspect
of my life it will entail. As we can see from
those who have acquired significant media
fame, often a number of other aspects of the

So, I think, I am looking for a success that
incorporates my personal, love, family,
professional, artistic, and spiritual lives.

THE DOOR TO SUCCESS?
Often we pound on the door of our
opportunity with little success, wondering
when we will find admittance to the full
possibilities our lives truly have to offer,
unaware that we gained entry long ago.

is like a gem carefully placed in a setting
of great worth.
Let us take a moment today and rediscover
the wonderful contribution of our existing
lives, the lasting strokes of genius and
pure passion that make our daily efforts
so essential – so worthwhile - thankful
for the success now surrounding us.
Thank you for reading.
With love, G.
