Success and fulfillment are different, but they both require surrender.
When we think of success we normally think of material things; a nice car, a big house, money, vacations, etc. But, when we think about fulfillment we normally think of something deeper. A job well done. A purpose met. A connection. Fulfillment is spiritual, where as success is more material.
When we talk about either success or fulfillment we tend to refer to our profession or career. A career can definitely create success, but it also can bring a lot of fulfillment or un-fulfillment.
A lot of times when we talk about the success of our business ventures or careers, our health and wellness, or the fulfillment of our life's purpose we talk about all the “hard work” involved; all the struggle and pain we've had to endure or the time we had to “put in” to be where we are now.
But right here; right now, I’m going to totally and completely disagree with this notion of necessary struggle; because in my life; I’ve always had the biggest breakthroughs, the most success and fulfillment when I let go; when I surrender. When I let things align. When I stop “trying” so damn hard all the time.
On some level we all tend to believe we don’t deserve good things to happen to us; that we need to or should be required to work super hard for all we desire.
But the truth is; the moment we focus on aligning with what feels good and let the rest go; is when true fulfillment happens.
THAT is when life gets good.
You are good enough to have all you want.
You are deserving of all your desires.
You have permission to want what you want.
But don’t let the fact that you might not have it all right now make you play the victim.
The truth is you already have it all anyway. The truth is your true success and all the fulfillment you're looking for is already in your own heart. You've just got to re-member it.
So I’m going to go totally against the grain and say that you will find true success and fulfillment when you let things be EASY.
When you find pleasure and joy in the work; not by banging your head against a wall and hustling until you squeeze the life out of your adrenals.
Life is meant to be fun, wild, and enjoyable.
Your work is your purpose; and that comes easily.
Stop the resistance. Make the choice. Stretch your heart open to fit whatever is happening inside of it.
Your only job is to breathe into whatever is happening right now; and appreciate it.
I’m with you.
