Success

“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.” –Maya Angelou

I like myself. I am successful. I like what I do. I am successful. And I like how I do it. I am successful.

For years I thought success was measured by status. I felt like I needed to have a corporate job, drive a luxury car, have a half-million dollar home. Felt like success was materialistic, yet, I wanted to be successful.

I had jobs that others envied. I hated them though. My life mirrored happiness. I wasn’t happy though because I didn’t like myself. People often told me, “I like how you work. You do such a great job.” I didn’t like how I did my job because I did not like my job. I have bounced from job to job, career to career, relationship to relationship, home to home, state to state, car to car in search of success.

Though this year has been very trying for me mentally, physically, emotionally, and even spiritually, I can honestly say that I have found my success. Not only do I like myself, like what I do, and how I do it, I LOVE myself, LOVE what I do, and I friggin’ LOVE how I do it! I have unlocked the door to my happiness. I have found myself and I know what it takes to make me happy without sacrificing who I am or what I want.

Success cannot be handed to you. Success comes with struggle and overstanding what it is that you truly want.

Success [for me] is measured by my pure ability to discover who I am, what I want, how to go get it, and to actually get it. Success is overcoming all my trials and tribulations and obtaining all that God has planned for me.

Success is me. I AM success.

Blessings & Prosperity!
