Ask anyone you speak to if they want to be successful and they will likely say yes. And, what does that really mean? How does one achieve success? I thought about this long and hard for most of my career and personal life. I discovered something profound as I reached my 40s, I was already successful! Not to mention, I had been successful all my life. I came to this realization when it occurred to me success simply "is," and we experience it every day. The problem is that most of us define success based on how much money we have or material stuff we own. We have been socially conditioned to think success is a destination, when its really a journey. Yes, success can be an accumulation of wealth and material items at the surface level. However, lasting, real success is deeper and more substantial.
