Fantastic find! It’s a lengthy read but easy to follow.

Success is a general term that I think most people interpret to mean wealth AND /OR happiness.

That article points a nice technic to have some insights.

It may look reverse but I remember hearing this: Success, wealth and everything forms as a side effect of going towards blissfulness. Side effects are impermanent and separate from happiness.

Good observation: http://www.ted.com/talks/richard_st_john_s_8_secrets_of_success.html

Awesome video! Loved the ‘Get over CRAP ’ bit ;)

success is just a state of mind… think of yourself as a success and you’ll become successful… deep I know

Even though a lot of people measure success on a scale, usually money-related, you could of course say it’s also a state of mind. From that point of view, though, you could say that everything is a state of mind. Sure, you can measure your weight, intelligence, skill (at doing anything) or even happyness but in the end it’s all just a state of mind.

Quantum psychics greatly relies on this philosophy – everything around us, everything we do, everything we see is just what we think it is. It’s all just a state of mind.

As Sir Charles Lyell first said, back in the 1860s (I did my homework!); “Mind over matter” ;)

Yup exactly , everything is our own interpretation.

Successfull people for me are not necesseraly rich people.

It’s someone that reached his goals. If his goal is to make money and he succeed to have a lot, then he’s sucessfull to me.

If someone’s goal is to live his life meditating in buddah temple, and he do it , then he’s successfull.

If someone kills 20 person over 10 years , he is … wait no .. he’s a serial killer ! Ok too much Dexter :)

I think you got the point :)

interesting….but success comes from God!

I do believe that success comes from God, but I also do believe that success comes from working hard, being patient and so on! So what I want to say is that God won’t ever grant you success unless you deserve it, unless you worked hard :)

(Just explaining my point of view :) )
