Earned Success

It occurs to me listening to the news and watching the Olympics, just how screwed up our societies view's can really be.  So many people working hard to achieve something great, yet when someone does well, we seem to automatically link their success with someone else's failure.  I think this is wrong.
Your success is not about someone else's failure….It is about your success!  The hard work, time energy and dedication put into achieving a specific goal has been done.  In those final moments where you put it all on the line….if you keep it together and NAIL it….it is yours.  It was your time and YOU decided beyond a showdown of a doubt with your body that it was time.  Someone else's failure is a chapter in THEIR book, not yours because they did not do what you just did…..  We need to stop making excuses for failure and start celebrating the success's again without bias!  Just some food for thought.

Peace of Mind

There are the external things in life that bring you peace….. music, yoga, mediation and running to name a few.  But if you are truly looking for peace of mind take care in how you treat people…. show them respect, appreciation and genuine interest when speaking with them.  Don't' waste peoples time by using them, expecting something for nothing and not valuing their time and then expect to feel at peace with yourself.   Karma is a Bitch and it sucks when she is looking at YOU!
