I’m part of an experiment 😉 Well a meme (I learnt a new word today!).
Like many others it took me a while to figure out how I am successful … I’m not successful am I …??
Realising that for me success isn’t just about money, status, adoration or output … I’m ready to share …
My top 10 habits for success:
Love fully and wholly. Love with acceptance and open heart. Everything and everyone and all things (well, almost all 😉
Giggle, laugh and belly laugh. Find and create humour. Smile. Feed my child like side. Allow joy in my life.
Email, blog, phone, talk, listen, write, body language, eye contact, wave, touch. Communication in and out – like breath in my body
4. Nuture my creativity
… in any kind of way – doodle, draw, journal, day-dream, get lost in a detail of life, write, observe, paint, sculpt, daydream, play – use my creativity however, whenever, wherever.
Lots. Ideally get the sleep my body wants and not take sleep as measured by a clock
6. Wrap myself with quiet
Quiet … a luxury. Allow my brain, creativity, body and soul to breathe
See the world and all life in it in a million different ways – it’s a gift but I use it, use it, use it … never to lose it
8. Use positivity
Find positivity in difficult things, accept positivity into my life, use positive thinking to challenge negative nastiness
Trust myself, trust those I love, trust my instincts, trust that it all works out in the end. Related to this are beliefs/habits of “just do it”, “this is a small detail of a big picture that I can’t see yet” and “worrying won’t change the outcome”
10. Stop … and think
When I’m in a rush or feeling rash – stop and think and check things over. When I’m tangled up in mood or emotion – stop and think and apply another secret from this list. When I’m in pain or discomfort or exhausted – stop and think and do right things, good things.
This was a very enlightening exercise. Thanks to Camille for dragging me in on it 🙂
My turn to pass it on so … “tag – you’re it” to:
