A successful life is one with predominantly joyous experiences. When we make our purpose to get as much joy possible out of everything we do, we align ourselves with unlimited possibilities; and more joy evoking circumstances and situations will be attracted into our experience.
You already are everything you want to be. The most difficult part is allowing what you want to come into your awareness. By thinking about how you expect to feel once you reach a perceived level of success, allowing yourself to feel that way NOW, and by taking action that is inspired toward what you want – circumstances and situations will naturally evolve to easily produce the success you desire.
