Don’t Aim At Success

I used to be obsessed with “Success.”

Then I realized that chasing success is like chasing the Horizon.
Whatever goal you try to achieve,
once the “Dopamine hit” wears off,
you’re back into the next chase.

It never ends.

When I read this quote by Viktor Frankl
in the book “Man’s Search for Meaning”

It deeply resonated with me.

So from there, my aim shifted from seeking “happiness” and “success”
to doing something meaningful.

When you finally make that shift,
you’re no longer run by an external outcome.
Your energy shifts from “chase” to “surrender and enjoy”.

Helping people break cycles of Intergenerational Trauma
is a meaningful endeavour that I can connect with daily,
and is not dependent on a number to give me validation.

The trick is to look around you RIGHT NOW….
Right now, there is work to be done.
There is a world that needs you to shine your light.
To have the courage to offer your gifts.
To help those around you lift from suffering.

To access this meaningful possibility,
we MUST first be regulated and feeling safe in the body.
We must have the capacity to contain,
feel, release, and have flexibility in our Nervous Systems.
We must be adaptable to respond to a world
that is crumbling around us.

When we make our own healing a priority,
courage, vulnerability, authenticity, and empathy emerge powerfully,
and we then find ourselves able to help others in
a meaningful way.

When I put my focus on THAT,
I never had to worry about aiming for “success” again.
“Success” began to chase ME.

And I love showing other #CycleBreakers how it can be done.
