Being Happy and Not Losing Hope while you Travel the Road to Success

Being happy and feeling fulfilled in life certainly does lead us to defining success on our own terms.

Don’t you agree that this is part of the road to success?

You wish to be happy rather than losing hope, but do you understand how?

Consider more to comprehend why for social, spiritual creatures such as ourselves acquiring power, product and prestige belongings is never enough.

Our focus is on joyful living through intrinsic self-worth (or ethical virtues). Yes, that’s the best way.

I mean, favorable right-minded thoughts and perceptions building great attitudes. As a result, high expectations, responsible choices and fully grown beliefs without losing hope.

Consider this spiritual metaphysical principle from A Course in Miracles:

  • “God gives you only happiness. Therefore, the function He gave you must be happiness, even if it appears to be different.” 

Throughout a FULFILLMENT seminar at Eureka Springs, AR, I lectured on effective life fulfillment. I was promoting my book series on finding your inner Self for happiness and success.

In this three day transformation conference we discussed several major issues that are brought on by living too concrete.

What I mean is, destabilizing and often disturbing change sometimes is necessary for being happy.

Much of my life feels incomplete and caught up in trivia, you may at times think.

There should be more to life than this. However when you ask yourself  what’s missing out on, how do you answer?

Often we stress that we’re going mad to feel this way regardless of achievements in the company and eminence in the community.

In my first book of the ever-developing series, The Master of Everything: A Story of Mankind and the World of Illusion We Call Life, where life fulfillment exists is deeply explored.

Why, indeed–lots of individuals fall short of their achievements.

They fear life is passing them by.

Just as well, who feel stuck in their careers or frustrated in their relationships?

They are not “doomed to hell,” so to speak, however virtually always spiritually maladjusted through self-limiting beliefs. Too, lack of confidences, low expectations, immature beliefs and typically reckless options.

They are left wondering how they can find consistent satisfaction.

My work answers these uncomfortable concerns in addition to more, and much more about the value of the inner Self.

Our focus is on joyful living through spiritual values and not losing hope.

Thereby, of course, right-minded perceptions bring forth high expectations, accountable options and fully grown beliefs.

In the New Testament, Matthew tells how Jesus stated, “Knock on the door and it will be answered.”

We have learned as the late Wayne W. Dyer, Jung, Maslow, and numerous other modern day psychological and spiritual leaders taught us; that the inner Self prevails always.

As well, regrettable souls who are suffering from neurotic ailments and existential alienation, are those persons who have failed to find a consistent sense of inner knowing.

I mean, indicating that guarantees their complete satisfaction through life’s several phases.

We have likewise discovered that couple of individuals are going to merely get fortunate. Sure, and have actually fulfillment handed to them from past generations of wealth.

Life is filled with many “quid-pro-quos”, if you will. I’m saying, in which we need to do our part wisely and well.

That is to have life become consistently pleasing as a by-product of our responsible choices.

Undoubtedly being happy suggests that those persons doing the best they can – while still feeling stuck in their careers, need to to look deeper.

Or, those losing hope and dissatisfied with their love relationships. Likewise, nervous that life is passing them by, should learn much better ways of managing their presence.

Naturally, that is where my book series takes us on a healing path.

This method was first conceived by Paul in the New Testament. I mean, we may say, who is the world’s first Psychologist.

He had brought forth upward through the ages what gave a road to success for people in suffering like survivors of the holocaust.

Viktor Frankl gave us tremendous insight on the will to survive and find happiness always.

Thomas Aquinas, and Francis of Assisi, centuries ago, implied spirit healing for all to easily understand.

These people and so many more, have passed along that truly being happy is everything!

Even in mass confusion, with God’s help, so many to this day found meaning by helping others make it through losing hope.

(I also recommend a related article on: Is there that ‘Something’ guiding us along for the life of happiness, yet perhaps we’re not listening?)

In the next section, let’s look at defining a great life lived and always feeling fulfilled.

Definition Of Success and Being Happy while Never Losing Hope

No matter who you talk to, you will find that every individual has a different definition of success. You have to decide what your own definition of success is prior to attaining it.

We do find life fulfillment when we honer our heart’s desire and not allow our errors and mistakes to define us. 

A Course in Miracles further teaches us:

  • “Lead us not into temptation” means: Recognize your errors and choose to abandon them by following your true inner Guide—your Teacher of the real You. 

Some will tell you that their definition of success is happiness.

There is truly no right or wrong response, since joy is personal, and so is someone’s definition of success.

Success may be something you seek in your career, or it may be something you look for in your personal life.

For me, my meaning of success lies somewhere in the middle.

I believe having financial security is a part of success. However I do not think you can base your entire life on that one thing alone.

You need to know what your definition of success is before you can achieve it.

If you want to find the road to success and you do not know what that is for sure, you are going to have a hard time arriving.

Like Wayne W. Dyer had stated in his book, Real Magic: “Quit surviving and start arriving.”

If you know what you desire, and what you believe will make you feel tranquil and happy within, then you have actually discovered your definition of success.

Oh my, yes, and you are going to have a much easier time attempting to get there.

The road to success is that much simpler to follow if you have defined objectives. Your meaning of success will be as unique as you are.

Some may decide they do not like your concept of being happy.

In book 3 of my series entitled, And Then I Knew My Abundance, I proved what happiness and success is.

We have one life, and we must live it they way we desire the outcome to be. 

No matter who you talk to, you will find that every person has a different definition of success.

Again, but in a different way I say, some will tell you that their definition of happiness is being all they can be.

Others may say it is about living according to their true potential; whatever that might be.

There is actually no right or incorrect response, since happiness is individual, and so is somebody’s definition of success.

If you understand what you want, and what you think will make you feel serene you are on the road to success.

Just as well, pleased inside, then you have actually discovered your meaning of success. That means, you are going to have a much easier time “arriving rather than just surviving.”
