What Is True Success? – A Video From Michael Bernard Beckwith

Whenever I feel like I have lost my way and have been pulled towards the mind of the ego, I ask myself: If I were to leave the planet today, did I give and love more or show anger and take more? A question that immediately triggers your mind to look at the world with an open and whole-hearted perspective, the outlook towards life outside of the ego.

What is true success?

In our modern definition of the word it means money, houses, cars, fame, fortune, celebrity – the things that boost our ego. The things that show the other humans of our world that we have it all. Yet, as Michael Beckwith says, Success with a capital S is the joy, the love, the serving and giving back, how much we can make this planet a better place. It is about expressing our unique gifts and talents that we were given. Sure, fame and fortune are exciting, but even after you own everything, is your soul still searching for something more?

See I am always toggling and rocking back and forth between expressing my true self and the pleasures of the ego, and when people focused on things of the ego are around me, their ideas can sometimes get in my mind’s way. How much money are you making? Shouldn’t you be in college? These sentences can sometimes throw me off, left confused and hurt it sometimes can take me a while to get back my confidence. And yet every time I push on. Because I keep focusing on the Success with the capital S, that life that I want to live where I want to express my talents and give back to this world that we all live on together.

So, at the end of the day, what does Success mean to you?

How do you want to live your life and make this planet a better place? See, the things that boost the ego will not go with us when we pass on, yet the joy and love that we leave behind on this planet will continue forever. The gifts and talents that only you can bring into this world are awaiting within you. We are waiting for you.

I hope this video inspires you to strive towards Success! Enjoy!
