When Are You Going To Be Successful…

Hey guys,

There is a saying…

‘Don’t live to work, Work to Live’…

We need to work because this is a material world and we have to pay bills, but when we are working at something, or somewhere, that we don’t like or enjoy just because of those bills, we are living to work.

The bills will get paid and we may accumulate things, but where is the life?

When are we living?

One day in the future when it’s all done?

Unless we love, REALLY love, what we are doing, that is time that we will never get back…

That is WASTING our time…

There is a Garth Brooks song I find really inspiring called ‘Fish’…

This song is about a man who has spent his life working, and he just works and works and works, and then he goes on a holiday.

While on that holiday he sees a man everyday with his fishing rod and tackle heading off to fish, which he does all day.

One day he walks down to the man’s fishing spot and starts talking to him and he asks him the question…

‘Have you ever thought about what you are going to do with your life?’

Then he decides to share with this man the secret to his success…

‘You can sell these fish you’re catching, you can buy yourself a boat. Hard work and dedication and the next thing you know, you reinvest your money, you’ll be the captain of the fleet. You’ll be sitting pretty down on Easy Street, and you can do anything that you wish…’

 ‘He says ‘You mean fish?’…’

He was judging the man before this, but with this realization he thought about how he was living his life, he then asks himself

‘Is success a second mortgage, on a big house with a pool, or is it a chair, the salt in the air, wetting the line…’

 In the song he then joins the man at the beach and they just fish, fish, fish…

We can make judgements on our lives, and other people’s lives, on where we are and where we are not…

We let other people’s judgements on our lives rule our decisions…

And we can use that to decide that we aren’t successful until this or until that…

Or we can appreciate where we are, ENJOY where we are, while working towards where we want to be…

I’m definitely NOT saying, stop everything and just go fish!

It’s important to keep having those goals, dreaming those dreams, heading in the direction we want to go…

But, for you just make sure it’s the direction YOU want to go in!

If you don’t like what You are doing, CHANGE IT!

You are ALLOWED, and YOU are worth doing it for!

Find a way, YOU can do it!

Enjoying the Now is BEING SUCCESSFUL!

When are YOU going to be successful?

When are YOU going to SEE yourself as already successful?

Play and see where it takes you 🙂 

Many blessings, always
