Humility – The Secret to Success

22 October

When-Were-Not-TogetherWhen we think about success, goals, desires, we wonder, we ask questions, we get curious.

Some of the questions that bubble up are:

Is there a secret?

What does it take?

Do you have to want it enough? Too much? So much?

Is that all?

Does it take discipline?

Is it innate?

Can it be learned?

Can I achieve it?


What am I doing wrong?

What am I doing right?

Is there only one secret?

Are there many?

How do I choose?

How do I know?

No matter how many skills we have acquired, the discipline to nurture and develop our talent, to accept that we have talent and we also need to learn how to listen. To our inner voice as well as the outer voices acting in our best interest.

It takes humility and that can be harder than finding the dream or having the discipline to pursue it!

You need humility to get advice and humility to be open enough to receive and really benefit from it. You want to engage coaches and a support team – but then you have to be open to what they contribute. You need to be willing to test and explore new possibilities. And that really tough one – admitting to yourself and others that you don’t know everything and that you need help and support!

Around it goes…

It is hard for us to get still and listen. Why? We’re busy, we have a lot on our plates, we have people who need us, we have work to get to, and places to go.

And yet. With all that drive and ambition, there is the inner voice, the inner self, our very soul that needs nurturing – needs to be heard. You can achieve any level of success you want.

The one thing that is a thread in all the success literature is a way to go inside, go deep and believe in yourself. And every successful person will tell you they’ve got a way to tap into their inner wisdom. And so must you, and I, and all of us.

I believe we are more powerful than we know and we move more quickly than we should. Taking the time to settle your mind can actually help you achieve more than all the running we’re doing.

Take some time for you. Ask the questions. Improve your questions. Find the answers within. Blessings on your journey.
