To clear the air: success is NOT about having money, especially printed paper with dead presidents on it.


While money is important, money is merely paper. In fact, in ancient times money was gold, walnuts and even animals at one point in time.


If you think chasing "paper," is success think again.

According to Wikipedia:

"Many things have been used as medium of exchange in markets including, for example, livestock and sacks ofcereal grain (from which the Shekel is derived) – things directly useful in themselves, but also sometimes merely attractive items such as cowry shells or beads were exchanged for more useful commodities. Precious metals, from which early coins were made, fall into this second category."

From <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_money>

Success represents more than the money in your bank account. It is a wholistic approach to life that includes money, but much more.


Success is about:

1. Having clear objectives about your life that align with your value system.

2. Maximizing the use of yours resources to achieve goals efficiently.

This includes (but not limited to):


1. Freedom of Your Time.

2. Freedom in the Space You Live in.

3. Your Energy.

4. How you earn money and build wealth.

5. Efficiently using your resources that allows overflow to help others achieve.

6. Healthy Prosperous Life-Giving Relationships.

7. A Vital Body.

8. Healthy things to eat and put in your body.

9. A Productive Mind and Thought System.

10. Daily Practices that Rejuvenate You not Deplete You.

11. Love, Joy, Happiness, Peace, Harmoney and Opulence in everything you do.

If we limit success to money, we truly limit our possibilities to live the best life meant for us. While it is necessary for money and building wealth, you can be rich in money and poor in all the other tens areas listed above; that's not a good life.


So let's pass up on the flossing and get real about what success is and what it is not. When we do, that is the moment we truly begin to embrace possibilities and live.
