The Eight Qualities of Success

18 December 2014

  • Harmony is when there is complete agreement between what you think, say and do.

  • Balance is the reward of harmony; it is when you are most calm and content because there is no disconnect between your thoughts, words and actions.

  • Courage. Is the ability to make choices that bring harmony and balance. Courage is not always about action. It takes courage to do nothing, rather than do something that you do not believe in or understand.

  • Generosity. True generosity is an offering; given freely and out of pure love. No strings attached. No expectations. Time and love are the most valuable possession you can share.

  • Happiness: bubbles up when the first four qualities are in abundance. Happiness is not a luxury. It is a necessity. When we are happy we are in the best possible place to be good to ourselves and those we love.

  • Wisdom: is the ability to make the right decisions at the right time. Wisdom alerts you when you are out of balance or having trouble summoning courage. It is your inner voice guiding you through and past the noise.

  • Cleanliness: When there is clarity and organization in your thoughts and your physical space you can more easily access the inner wisdom and courage that makes harmony and balance achievable.

  • Beauty is what you possess when you incorporate the seven preceding qualities into your life.
When people come to me for help there is always one — and often more than one — quality that is broken, or not at all present. Identifying the missing qualities and talking through ways to bring all eight to the forefront is the heart of my work. Does it immediately solve a financial problem? Of course not. But it becomes the foundation that propels people who felt overwhelmed or defeated to feel empowered and in control of their future. It's the very catalyst for lasting success.
