What is the meaning of success for you?

Home Stager with J.Williams Home Staging LLC.


  What is the meaning of success for you?,Right now why you are reading this, what is it for you? Lots of money! Being productive! Satisfaction! Ok,  well how do I achieve this you might ask?  I have wondered why some people are more successful than others?

My opinion and this is just my opinion...Attitude.. You can have lots of money and very productive and some what satisfied, but with a horrible attitude it can be very damaging and limit you.

But a positive attitude is an indicator and a source of high self-confidence which leads to satisfaction, being productive and that's right... money. Does that mean everything is always going to be wonderful? No but it will create a better world around you.

Most people are attracted to positive people. You don't have to learn much about successful people to learn one of their key strengths is their way they look at their failures and they do have failures. Just like Michael Jordan said " I missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the games winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over again in my life. And that's why I succeeded"

So,why don't you try this for 5 days, try only thinking of positive thoughts, no matter what comes your way you will try and see the good side of it and what positive things you can learn and take away from what ever situation you might be in.  Hopefully by the end of the 5 days you would have discovered some of the benefits of positive thinking.

Are you up for the challenge?

I agree, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Whenever anything goes wrong I ask what the lesson is and move forward. Thanks for the inspirational post!

Joannie, at first my answer was "paying the bills!" but it really is much more than that.  We are gifted with the ability to either help people move on to the next stage of their lives or, in the case of redesign, make their lives better by improving their homes.  Our homes are usually the most important possession we have-- how lovely is it that we get to help people with their most prized possession. 

Hmmm-- the challenge to be only positive for the next 5 days... I will really, really try!

Having a positive attitude makes all the difference!  If you think something is good, it WILL be.  This is absolutely the key to enjoying life and making things work out how you want them to.
