For some reason, there is something about people succeeding that makes me really happy! It literally makes me smile, and I'm so thankful for them and their success!
Now I may sound a little different, but I find that when people are happy, they can be genuinely happier for others. Whereas when they are not satisfied in their own lives, there tends to be comparison, envy, or just nothingness, Don't get me wrong, I have definitely had times in my life where I wasn't necessarily happy for other's success, and it was more like...."hmmm that's good for you." Again, these were times when I can assure you, I was not very happy with my own life.
But to see people, especially people's whose journey I've personally followed, when I see them achieve their dreams, and goals, it takes me to another level. I not only feel happy for them, but it ignites something in myself.
There are really two common instances in my life as of recently in which this occurs: 1. Actors/Actresses I see in the beginning of their careers when no one notices them, and then years later they hit a big role, and I'm just like, "wow, I always knew they would be big." 2. Would absolutely be people in my Herbalife network. For people to get rewarded by helping other people get healthy, and change their financial future....wow, that's crazy. its crazy because its everyday people. People who didn't know what it meant to be recognized genuinely by others. people who never were around people who cheered them on, and really lifted them up, and push to help them meet their goals.
It's just so exhilarating. When we go thru challenges, and want to meet our own goals, life happens, we make excuses, we get in our own ways, or roadblocks come.
But when you see someone else win, it should be a light at the end of the tunnel. No matter what you go through, never stop until. You don;t fail, you just find a number of ways that don't work.
When you think of failure, I bet you don't think of Oprah, Bill Gates, R.H. Macy, Thomas Edison, Walt Disney, Soichiro Honda, Henry Ford, Michael Jordan, or even Steven Spielberg. These are all people who experienced tremendous "failure" or rejection before making it big in whatever we know them for today! That's exhilarating! That brings me joy!!!! it's a reminder of consistency, walking in your purpose, belief and hard work. Embrace the success of others. Do not feel threatened, and don't also feel you must compare someone. Most importantly, don't put others on a peddle stool because they would tell you, we can all achieve greatness, it's just up to us to BElieve we deserve it and to go after it!
Well its May! A new month! Do many things that your June self will thank you for. Starting with gratitude, and sharing genuine love and joy for others. The more we put out in the world, the more that's returned back to us!
What goals will you set this Month? and how will you show love/support others who have achieved something great? Whether you know them personally or not, what goodness will pay forward?
