What does being successful mean? Making a certain amount of money a year? Or maybe having a certain amount of subscribers. Becoming a “Best Seller?” Could success be defined as getting out of bed and facing the day? Some people think so. Is that definition of success a shortcut? I’m not so sure.

There are individuals who feel unsuccessful unless they are making a million dollars a year. Maybe we should measure our success by the amount of time and energy we remain in being uncomfortable. Facing our fears. Connecting. Providing support and service.

At times it can feel like our world is not set up to support this ideology, but rather those who desire to exploit others and reach a profitable bottom line. But, there is another way. There’s a path less traveled. One of morals and responsibility. An approach based in connection, service and community. A route that brings those people you are “exploiting” along for the ride. Elevating everyones’ lives. It’s not as common I will give you that. But, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

That’s what I’m interested in.
