Creating My Own Terms of Success 09/07/2010
Sometimes when I can’t settle on a topic to write about I reach for my Goddess Cards. This mornings card was the Three of Staves. Its symbolic meaning is:
“an enterprise about to cumulate in success. The ability to transform goals into realistic action. Business success after a successful launching. Activity with clear intent.”
It was no surprise to me that this is the card showed up. After setting yesterday’s intention of making $1,000 a week this card tells me that when my intentions are pure & clear my goals will be met.
Something that did come up for me while reading this card was the concept of creating our own terms of what success is.
Often I find myself disappointed with my achievements. Usually when I look deeper at this I find that I am actually disappointed with my opinion of what other people expect of my success.
How the hell am I suppose to know what other people expect of me unless there is an actual conversation around the matter?
I can assume, but that usually leads to disappointment & feelings of failure.
When I shift my thoughts to what I decide my success is I find my goals are much easier to meet. Not only have that, but I always hold the power to forgive myself if those expectations are not met.
So what is my definition of success in this particular instance?
By making $1,000 a week of my own personal income I am a success. If I end up making $999 a week- I’ll be happy with that too. I have no plan for how this income will show up or through whom. But I am committed to allowing it to show up in my life one way or another.
