Always choose to be nice and success will follow. When you’re nice and grateful the universe will ear you clearly and give you what you really want.
I ask you, how do you measure success at the end of a lifetime?
I thought about this question a lot of times and I found that I have a definition for it and this is the truth for me. It does not have to be in accordance with what you hold truthful for your life. It’s a personal, subjective decision but nevertheless, I would love to share with you and feel free and be welcome to use it as yours or modify it to your needs if it’s helpful then it’s a big gift for me that I could be helpful to you.
So when I imagine, when I visualize the last day or the day when I have gone home I don’t think success is only how much you achieved or how much you’ve done for others in a material way. I mean that is part of that is part of it for sure. I am not negating that at all. I mean it’s important that you live to the fullest, that you also use your abilities and your talents to the max. I am absolutely positive about that and I would recommend to do that. But I don’t think the question is how many people would cry for you when you’re gone. I don’t think that is my criteria. This is what I often hear people say; “I wonder how good I was.” “How many people would come to my funeral?” or something. Or “how people would miss me actually?” I mean I thought about this a long time too and I thought that is the ultimate answer. I have gone passed that and in a more positive way, I found something very similar to that but I think it’s even deeper and I want to share that with you right now. Was that some kind of an introduction for what comes? Yes, I think so. Thank you very much.
So my definition of success. Real success. Or I can measure if I lived a good life and truly valuable and remarkable life is how many people once I am gone and they find out will say that they are glad and were blessed to have known or met me? This is my definition and if you think about it for a second or longer if you allow yourself to think about it long which I strongly recommend, how many people after you’ve gone will remember you and say they are thankful and feel blessed that they were able to know you or to meet you. This is for me the ultimate goal of the achievement of success and I want the rest of my life to work on that, to improve and for that number to go up. So I can be… And it’s close to being nice to people, helpful to people, you know, not being judgmental, not being an asshole at all which I assume you and I think anyway if you’re listening to this that we have the same opinion in that concern.
You can afford to be nice because you cannot afford to lose time not being generous, not living in the moment, not being nice to people and not loving enough. You should be ready enough for life. You should be ready enough for love, and you should be open heartedly and open mindedly interact with those who interest you, with those you love, with those you can contribute to, this is the purpose of why you’re here. Don’t spend time being greedy, being jealous, living in anxiety, living in a place of non-abundance. “I appreciate you,” “I’m thankful for having met you.” This is something that you should really, really tell people that you really like and that have impacted you in your life more often. Go out there and be bold, be open hearted, free minded and tell people that you appreciate their presence. That you appreciate what you’ve learned from them, thank them from the bottom of your heart for having impacted you in your life and this is something you should do more often. Life is really simple. Say yes if you’re a pro, say no and mean it. Say thanks if you get something. I am sorry when you were not right. Look everybody deeply into the eyes and appreciate their presence say I love you all the time and goodbye to what does not support your best future you. Life is really simple. Be great. Be the best you you every can be. Don’t be jealous, don’t be greedy, love yourself and the degree that you love yourself, you can learn how to love and serve others.
How many people after they’ve found out that you’ve gone home will say I felt blessed and I am happy that I have met this person. This is my ultimate definition of success once my lifetime is done. Always think that karma sees and hears everything even what you’re not saying out loudly. What you think to yourself only and be careful what you think and what you wish for because it might come true and you know, be good, do well and have a great blessed day and make it a remarkable one
