How You’ll Find Success Once You Ditch Stress

There’s a notion in our society that in order to be successful, you have to put in an exponential amount of hard work and endure a lot of stress. Many people paint success as a monetary goal achieved, or a status that is gained.

But the truth is, success can mean a lot of things and ultimately it is the opposite of stress. Success can be a well balanced life, surrounded by positive people, places and things. It can mean having peace and kindness in your heart. Success can be defined as loving what you do, even if it doesn’t make you a million dollars or give you the status that you’re looking for. However, when we do find success in this sense, it is almost always rewarded with the extrinsic goals we desire as well.

How Does This Work?

For example: You quit your corporate job to become a full time writer. At first the pay may not be good or the stability seems to waiver, but you trust your intuition and continue to follow your passion. Now there’s two paths you could go down. You could stress about it and work yourself up and put in extra hours thinking of ways you can be successful and potentially burn yourself out, or you could keep your peace, remain calm and place your energy on what you love to do, writing. In the second scenario, you’re placing your energy towards improving and not wasting your energy on stress and negative emotions.

When we take out the negative emotions and stop feeding our energy towards stress, overwhelm and anxiety, we are connecting to a higher source to guide us where we need to be. We are also increasing our vibration and aligning with the opportunities that will get us to where we need to go.

So if you’re living a life that is filled with stress or you have a job that no matter what, you can’t find yourself happy with, it may be time to reevaluate. Stress does not equal success. Long hours does not equal success. Money and status does not equal success. Success is how you feel on the inside, how you feel about what you do and how you align with others and the universe.And once you are aligned, that is when the opportunities flow to you, the money follows and the people that are meant to be in your life.

How Do We Achieve This?

Of course it sounds easier said than done, but the truth is, it is just that easy if you choose to let it be that easy. Our minds will think of a million reasons when we’re faced with discomfort, but that is the ego taking over. Once we are able to recognize the ego and differentiate it from our soul’s purpose, that is when we are able to make decisions that are in alignment with our highest good. When we hit this point, everything we were seeking will come to us with very little or no effort at all.

Finding Your Purpose

Many people will sit and wonder what their purpose in this world is. Are they supposed to save lives? Are they supposed to invent the next big science revelation? Are they supposed to be the best parent they can be? It can be draining thinking about your future and everything that you may or may not accomplish.

It is important to take a step back and think about what makes you happy. Does going to your job make you frustrated or uninterested? If so, it might be time to make a change. Are you not so thrilled to be waking up to cold weather and snow every day? It might be time to make the move. Some may say that this is a form of running away from your problems. In my opinion, it’s realizing what is right for you and making that change. Life is fluid and does not stop for anyone. If you are unhappy time will pass by and you will still be unhappy. This is only true if you don’t do anything about it. You need to create your own happiness.

By following your happiness you will start to discover your true passions. Success is defined by the satisfaction that you get out of your work. Someone could win the lottery and not be successful. Someone with a few dollars in their bank account who is working their way through college could be successful. It doesn’t matter your circumstance, as long as you are happy with your progress and the end result.

It’s easy to dream of how you will feel once you “become successful,” but it can be difficult to figure out how to get to that point. This is where Holistic Sound Healing comes into play. By clearing negative thought patterns, opening up your mind, releasing your inhibitions and rediscovering yourself, your thoughts will become clearer and you will have more direction of what you truly want in life. It is easy to create the future that you want. We are what our thoughts consist of. Do you believe you are a lazy person? By believing you are lazy you are becoming lazy. If you believe that you are a successful person you will become successful. It’s easy to trick your brain, might as well trick your brain into becoming something successful and positive.

Waking up every morning and telling the universe that you are ready to find your purpose will give you a head start. You can meditate and do yoga to feel more centered and balanced with your life. Everything happens in due time and your purpose is in the works. Most of the time you are living your purpose without realizing how it’s truly affecting your life. Everything happens for a reason so embrace the process!
