Spiritual Laws of success are the same as the spiritual laws of life. First, ask yourself a question. What is a success, and what does it mean to you? Success means different things to many people when it is related to achievements. For example, some people want to win a gold medal at the Olympics, but they finished 3rd, which would not be considered a success in their opinion because they wanted to win the gold medal. Sometimes a person wants to cook the best meal ever, but they forgot to put the salt in. This person would think they are not successful even though the cook could add the salt to the table.
What are the laws of success?
As you have read previously, it all depends on a certain level of achievement when measuring success against a given task. Society can also come into this zone of judging the lack of or achievement of others. The real definition of success in the world of achievement depends on the person.
However, there is a greater success than either of those examples mentioned. That is the success of being the best version of yourself every day that you wake up. The first thing that you should do every morning when you awaken is to give gratitude for the fact that you are alive. Yes, that’s right; give gratitude that you are here in this world. Over six million people in the world every day do not wake up. When you get out of bed each morning, you are one of the lucky ones!
Attaching to self-identity
Attaching your self-identity to the outcome of anything you are trying to achieve can bring you joy or sorrow. It depends on whether you achieved your specific targets that day or not. You may have heard the expression, “you should enjoy the journey, not the destination”. For example, look at the image shown above. The person on top of that mountain would have gone through months of training, possibly even years. How do you think they would feel if a cloud obscured the view from the mountain peak? They could say I have wasted so much time preparing for this moment only to be let down by the weather.
Alternatively, they could say that the journey to get to this stage was a wonderful learning experience. I met so many helpful people and learned a lot about myself. I am much fitter and healthier than I ever was. I am ready to start my next journey in life. Of those two thoughts, which one do you think was most beneficial to their well-being?
True success is the experience of the miraculous. It is the unfolding of the divine spirit within us. It is the perception of divinity wherever we go, in whatever we perceive. In the eyes of a child, in the beauty of a flower, in the flight of a bird. When we experience our life as the miraculous thing that it is – not occasionally, but all the time – we will know the true meaning of success.
