Contemplating Success


Success: What is it?
• Doing things well?
• Devoting time and attention?
• Having care and purpose?
I had a dream…and consider the idea of success. I think: “it’s a successful task!” But, I hear so often: “He’s very successful or She’s very successful…or They are very successful,” and I wonder what that means. Very often, it seems to be attached to a particular type of job, degree and…money. I think of success this way sometimes:
• Having integrity, love, dedication and responsibility kept
• Having trust and courage
• Surrender
• Owning the spices of creativity.

What is success to you?
