“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you. ”
― Oprah Winfrey
If you’re very lucky, you find love in whatever you do. As I experience more and more of life, I find that my capacity for love and enjoyment grows. I realize that that is not necessarily true of all people or even most tho I do have hopes that joy and love may be contagious. I definitely know of people who infect others with their sheer delight in life and I aspire to that.
I have been contemplating today what it means to succeed. Does it mean having enough of the energy that people associate with currency to do what ever whim strikes you? Does it mean a sense of fulfilment and self-actualization that is apart from any material considerations? I believe it is the latter much more than the former. Oh I have nothing against money. It has its uses.Seldom have I seen ownership of a great amount of it producing happiness, quite often quite the contrary.
I will trade in love, joy, abundance and gratitude and will have riches beyond measure
