Sweet Success

Continuing down the path we celebrate success.  

Back at the beginning of the year, I shared I would be journaling different topics from Path of Positivity.  So, this month I'm sharing a journal layout I created while thinking about what success means to me and how I experience/accomplish this success.  

Here are my thoughts.  

Success means different things to each of us.  There are obvious successes such as graduations, new jobs, buying a home, etc and it's great fun to celebrate these accomplishments.  

However, it seems as I grow older and look around, I find true success in life is just feeling peace: especially peace with my decisions.

Where do we find this peace in a world filled with chaos?  I believe that answer is different for each of us.  I need to stop, breathe, meditate, pray, be in silence, etc.  Peace, for me, comes with preparation...good old fashioned "if......then" thinking.  I need to play out the scenarios BEFORE taking action.  Then, when I do put thought to action, I need to do so in a way that is peaceful to those around me.  

I guess for me, finding my success can only be done by 'making decisions with my head and carrying them out with my heart.'  There I will find peace and that is success!  

Come share your ideas of success with our challenge this month at Path of Positivity!
