Thinking About Success

Does the thought of success dominate your thinking throughout the day? If you want to be successful it should. In order to be successful, you must first think of yourself as being a success. This is about developing a success oriented mindset.

Your mind is the first step in all things in life. Before anything can be achieved, you must first believe that it can be achieved. It is developing sufficient faith, confidence, courage and desire within your mind to guarantee the outcome of your endeavor. Whatever undertaking that you have in your life, success or failure will be determined within your mind.

It is the manifestation through the law of attraction that the universe may comprehend. Your thoughts hold power in the world that surrounds you. They shape your world by the perception you give events. It has been said that you can make a hell of heaven or a heaven of hell. You have been blessed with the ability to make that choice for your life.

So it is your choice whether to think about success or failure. Failure has a lower frequency of thought energy, that is why it is easier for it to overtake the mind. Success requires more energy to dominate the thoughts within the mind. So the endeavor must be worthwhile for your life.

Think about success and only success. Never allow failure to creep into your mind. No matter how dark the situation may seem. There is always a light in darkness. Always a positive in a negative. That is what being successful is all about. Making it through the down times because you are certain that you will succeed.

So develop a mindset that thinks only of success. Success must be the dominating thoughts before you may see tangible results. If you can keep your mind positive about your endeavor then you can determine the result before you begin.

What Defines Success?

The dictionary defines success as “The favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the accomplishment of one’s goals.” or “The attainment of wealth, position, honors or the like.”

The most important definitions comes from this question. What does success mean to you? Think about it for a few moments. Each of us have our own definition of what success means to us. With varying degrees of accomplishments that determines success for our lives.

To me success is defined solely by one thing. It isn’t money or fame or anything that is monetary. It’s an emotion that’s felt within the heart. That emotion is happiness. If you aren’t happy than all the success in the world will mean nothing. To be successful you must be happy.

Happiness begins at the start on your road to success. For it is the journey, not the end result that will define the amount of happiness experienced. The end result alone will not bring lasting happiness, it must come from making a decision to be happy during the journey.

Maybe you feel that you haven’t experienced success in your life. Whether it be from a lack of accomplishment or a lack of satisfaction from your accomplishments. But don’t worry about it. You still have time to experience lasting success.

Take some time to think about what will make you happy. That is where you will find success for your life. Success doesn’t have to be grandiose in terms of materialistic gain. Some of the simplest things in life often bring us the most happiness.

If you have found success in the form of lasting happiness, then you’ve found the purest form of success. Rejoice in your victory. If you haven’t found it yet, keep searching. Take the time to reflect upon what matters most to you in life. Find your own version of success, not what the masses think is success.

Blogging Calendar

I’ve come to the decision that I want a more robust blogging calendar. When I started out with this blog I wasn’t sure if I needed a blogging calendar. As the months have passed I feel that it is essential to give my readers a preview of the content coming to imagination salvation.

This new and improved blogging calendar is combining two of my passions into one central theme. Personal development and writing. Now while personal development is more of the main focus for this blog, I also want to post about writing and blogging. Putting a personal development twist on these topics.

My goals for this blog are simple. To help you live a better life. To give you inspiration so that you may achieve anything that your heart desires.

We are all writers here on WordPress. Whether it be blogging, freelance writing, consulting, poetry short stories, or even full fledged novels. Whatever your ambitions are, you are a writer at heart. That is my other goal. To motivate you to keep writing.

Don’t You Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit,

Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.


Life is queer with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about,

When he might have won if he stuck it out.

Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow-

You may succeed with another blow.


Often the goal is nearer than

It seems to a faint and faltering man;

Often the struggler has given up

When he might have captured the victor’s cup,

And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,

How close he was to the golden crown.


Success is failure turned inside out-

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,

And you can never tell how close you are-

It may be near when it seems afar;

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit-

It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.

-John Greenleaf Whittier

When tough times have us down or when life seems hopeless, one more step is all it might take to change the tide. Whatever it may be that we are going through we must keep moving forward. We must have faith that our lives can be better than our current situations or circumstances.

“Success is failure turned inside out”. We can’t be afraid of failure because in reality failure only exists on one condition. If you quit. The other failures that you may perceive are only temporary defeats. If you keep going you will achieve success in any endeavor that you may choose.

Those down times that you have are learning experiences. The trials, tribulations, adversities, heartbreaks and defeats teach us more about life than our successes. Embrace the experiences. Find some value in these times because they will give you something to change the tide. The one thing you can’t do is quit.

It is when you are hardest hit that you mustn’t quit because at that moment if you try one more time, it could be the success you have been seeking for your life.

So don’t give up. Take one more step regardless of your pain. On the other side is a life of your dreams and if you are still breathing there still is hope for your future. I believe that you can take one more step. I believe that you can have what you desire for your life.
