The Art of Success

The Art of Success
The art of success is a continuing
upward spiral of progress.
It is perpetual growth.
Success is to have the courage
to meet failure without being defeated.
It is refusing to let present loss
interfere with your long range goal.
Success is relative, individual and personal.
It is your answer to the problem of
making your years add up to a great life.
It is focusing the full power of all you are
on what you have a burning desire to achieve.
“Art of Living”, Wilfred A. Peterson

Supreme Court Justice, Oliver Wendell Holmes, once said, “I found the great thing in this world is, not where we stand, but in what direction we are moving.”

We are constantly on the move, engaged in basically two forms of travel.  The first is physical motion – travel to work, social engagements and meetings.  The second is our continuous journey through time – moment to moment – day to day – year to year.  But curiously, we approach these similar types of travel in very different ways.

In most instances, we spend an enormous amount of time and energy planning the occasional journey. Vacations, visits to friends or business trips carry with them different purposes. A great deal of forethought goes into the date of departure, the mode of travel, what to wear, itineraries and how much it will cost.

The second form of travel – your continuous journey through time – is often less planned and less organized by comparison.  Yet, it is the most important journey of all – for you will only make it once.

Ask yourself where you have been heading for last few years.  What are you doing now?  Where do you want to be in one week, one year, or ten years from now?

Planning your life with as much purpose and focus as you plan your vacation… is creating your success.  Success comes to those who know where they are going and how they are going to get there.

Genuine leadership is defined by heart, integrity, honesty, courage, compassion and those many intangible qualities of being and creating the most authentic person and leader that resides within each one of us. It takes time, awareness, knowledge and purpose to build our inner leadership and leadership in others. And, it takes grit. It requires a willingness to be vulnerable and show our true selves to the world; strength to speak our mind clearly and with confidence; empathy and compassion for ourselves and others while staying strong and determined; and the focus, faith and belief to do what we know is right even when it is the most difficult thing to do. Its a fascinating journey and one I have traveled for decades. The further I go, the more I realize how much I still need to learn and experience. It seems like just when I reach a new level of self-awareness, something comes into my life that reminds me I still have much to learn and many more levels to ascend. Exciting? Yes.
