Success and Fulfillment: A New Outlook

Sep 05, 2023

Have you ever felt like you're sprinting non-stop, chasing success, but somehow always feeling a step behind?

Let me introduce you to Frankie, a client of mine. On the surface, she's the epitome of business success. But when you peel back the layers, there's a soul yearning for more, a sentiment that might resonate deeply with you. 

She was trapped in a relentless cycle of achievements, but something was amiss. "There had to be more to life than just milestones. That realization hit me hard, and that's when I reached out to you Rita," she shared.

Ever felt the need to dig deeper? Beyond the accolades, the promotions, and the praise, is there a voice inside you asking, "Is this it?" 

It's a question that haunts many of us. Frankie grappled with this very feeling. "I had all the success one could ask for, but something was missing. I wanted my life to resonate with meaning, not just milestones," she reflected.

What does your future look like? Fast forward a year from now. What do you see? Are you living the life you've always envisioned? For Frankie, this introspection was pivotal. 

She's always been an achiever, but she realized she was channeling her energy in one direction: work. "I've conquered the corporate world. Now, I want to conquer my personal world. I want to define success on my terms," she mused.

Ready for a change? What's the first step you'd take to reshape your life? Think about it. What's holding you back? Frankie's journey resonates with many. Personal growth is a never-ending journey. As I often say, "To find your light, you've got to confront your shadows and there happens to be a few."

Frankie's story underscores a vital lesson that I believe many of us need to hear: 

To truly live a created life, you must become a student of your own mastery. 

This means diving deep into your unique abilities and also confronting your dark sides. 

If you don't understand what's genuinely holding you back, or if you can't pinpoint why you're sacrificing your life at the altar of work, forging the life you truly want can seem daunting. But with introspection, guidance, and courage, it's a journey well worth embarking on. 

Remember, it's never too late to redefine success and create what truly matters to you.

Rumi, a 13th-century Persian poet and scholar, understood the essence of guidance and support. Over seven centuries ago, he wrote 

"Whoever travels without a guide needs 200 years for a 2-hour journey." 

Reflect on this:

1 Who´s supporting you right now?

2 How can I support you for what's next in your life and career?
