Success Is A Process, Not An Event

I woke up this morning thankful for the life that God has blessed me with.  Despite so many things that could otherwise be reasons for me to be discouraged, I’m actually more confident than ever.

I’m realizing that success is really a process.  It’s a road that must be traveled.  Some people’s roads are longer than others to reach certain goals.  But the process is the same – the fact that it is a process stands, and cannot be avoided.

And when I use the word “success”, I’m using it to define all aspects of life – business, financial, happiness, joy, peace, abundance, favor.  I define success as a full, happy, and abundant life.

When I look at it that way, then, I see success as something that you achieve each day as you journey through the process of success.

Again… success is a process, not an event.

“Event” mentality will set you (and me) up for certain failure.  Every problem in life cannot be fixed right now.  They cannot turn around by the end of today.  Sure, amazing things can happen and do happen.  But those are anomalies from the norm.  The norm is a process – a growth process that over time causes you to think differently, act differently, have higher expectations, higher levels of confidence – and its from that mentality that the process of success does it’s magic and turns things around for the good – and turns things around for the long term – and builds a platform for lifelong prosperity in every aspect of life!

    Great post, R. I often catch your posts as you share a name with a circuit court judge I track via Google Alerts. In my own business consultation I work with clients on "Path Setting" as opposed to Goal Setting. It's certainly one thing to want for something, but knowing and committing (and sacrificing) to follow the path required to attain goals is what really separates the Elite from the rest.

    FYI typo ('not' for 'now') P6, S2.

    Cheers,

      Do you maintain a blog? If so, feel free to provide a link here. I'd be most interested in reading your content, as would many others I'm sure.
