The Secret to Success
The Secret to Success is Stillness
Beyond the mind exists a still, Silent consciousness that holds within it the solution to any mind-made problem, and also the solution to success and purpose in life.
By solution, I don’t mean an answer that comes from clever or positive thinking, but a way out of the box of the thinking mind altogether.
Until I knew still silent awareness and the pristine peace, limitless love, joy and unbounded abundance that it contains, I never felt totally satisfied with the life that I’d worked so hard to build. I always felt like ‘there must be more to life than this’. I chased goal after goal in the hope that the next tick on the list would bring me real satisfaction. I thought I wasn’t happy yet due to my life not being how I felt it needed to be.
I hadn’t ever considered that my discontentment could be coming from the fact that I was living lost in my pendulum-like mind. I was mentally swinging from judgement to judgement – and as a result of this unseen habit, inadvertently missing a huge aspect of my life and my Self.
None of my achievements could ever relieve the eternal itch that something was missing.
“Attachment to money will always create insecurity no matter how much money you have in the bank.” ― Deepak Chopra.
I was looking for fulfilment in places it could not be found. No amount of money can buy you the inner peace and connection or the fulfilment and happiness that you naturally experience when engaging present moment awareness.
All these beautiful things are part of your conscious awareness. They are available to you now. True success does not depend on how positive or perfected you can make your thoughts, emotions, body and life. Does this sound too good to be true? Keep with me and stay open-minded!
No Amount of Money can buy you fulfillment
I have been involved in this field of work for a decade. I’ve worked with a whole spectrum of individuals; some of them almost broke, others multimillionaires. Irrespective of the size of their bank balances everyone is equal when it comes to having the same abundant awareness living inside them. The wealthier folk haven’t necessarily been any happier; they’ve just had different problems.
It’s become clear to me that real success is not measured by external means, but by how calm, contented and connected to your authentic Self you are on the inside.
During this journey to a new way of experiencing your mind, your Self, and life, I hope you will see that the secret to success is stillness.
