“Speak what you think today in hard words, and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said today.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Welcome to The Success Zone, an eclectic muse you can use for your personal success!
I’m glad you’re here where each week, I’ll share what I think today; offer a quote for your muse to both muse and use; and propose an experiment designed to support your journey. Let’s get started!
Our approach here is eclectic: Adj. selecting from various systems, doctrines, or sources; composed of material gathered from various sources, systems, etc. Noun – a person who uses eclectic methods in philosophy, science or art.
Yum, I love being an eclectic, honoring ‘one size (or approach or system or idea) doesn’t fit all’. That’s what I’m aiming to create here at Success Zone: a place to explore what success means; how its meaning fits with dreams and values; what shifts may be called for; approaches for creating your personal Success Zone; and an assortment of resources for the journey.
Success Zone is about individually and collectively reclaiming personal power, a right and responsibility that we aren’t very well prepared for in our culture. We’ll look at where we’ve abdicated power and how to gain it back through the lens of ancient mysticism, brought forward to practical application in today’s world.
Success Zone is about supporting a shift from the ‘more is better’/’win-loose’ paradigm to the paradigm of care, compassion, cooperation, collaboration, community with abundance for all.
Success Zone is a place where elements of old paradigms will be used to build bridges to creating new paradigms in business and in life. For example, where learning to manage your energy meets creating success in network marketing. Did I mention we're eclectic here?
I want to challenge your thinking (and mine!), to poke around the edges of what’s possible, explore how nature and ancient wisdom define and guide us to success. As Emerson suggests this eclectic approach may sometimes be contradictory. Yet, that represents the diversity and flow of life. Things change. We change. We can reconsider and adapt. Or resist and be left behind. Always there is choice.
Experiment for the Week: Identify something you desire more of in your life. Then, something you prefer less of. As you keep these in mind breathe in deeply more of what you want (see it, feel it, imagine it in your life). Then breathe out what you want less of (see, feel, imagine its absence). Do this for one minute, three times daily. Longer if you feel confused, stressed or tired. This week, I’m breathing in love and breathing out antagonism. What about you?
