How to Measure Your Success

Do you know how to measure your success?

Whether you are a student of the Law of Attraction or not, you have goals for yourself. Inevitably, you are seeking ways to create the things you want in life. Perhaps you are reaching for money, love, health, friendship or career.

But at the end of the day, how do you know if you are successful?

Is your success as a creator defined by how many dollars you attract? Is it defined by how many vacations you go on? Is it defined by how much weight you lose?

If you are measuring your success by your manifestations in this manner, I kindly recommend you take pause with this approach.

Why? Because manifestations are old news.  Manifestations are fleeting, they come and go.  Further, they are only a mere reflection of what’s really important: your state of being.

Your state of being is what’s important. It’s what attracts everything.

Your state of being is responsible for how you feel and how your life unfolds.  Therefore it is your state of being that is your most precious commodity-not your manifestations.

So I ask that you consider measuring your success by your state of being, rather than your manifestations.

In other words, measure your success by how often you smile, laugh and play.

Measure your success by the joy in your life. Measure your success by how often you catch yourself having fun. Measure your success by your ability to go with the flow.

Ultimately, all any of us wants is to be happy.  We want a life full of joy and excitement. 

In the end, this is the only reason we want the money, the cars, and the relationships.  We want these things simply because we expect they will make us joyful.

We want the happiness, so we reach for manifestations because we want them to make us happy. The only true benefit of manifestations is that they give us an opportunity to experience our joy.

Fortunately, though, you don’t need manifestations to experience your joy. You can be joyful NOW. You have access to the happiness you are reaching for at any time, regardless of the dollars in your bank account, the clothes on your back or any other condition in your life.

Measure your success in your happiness, not your manifestations.  This is your life, and all that matters is that you enjoy it. A successfully created life is one that is lived in joy.  The “stuff” we create on our trail is largely irrelevant. There isn’t a manifestation on Earth that trumps a joyful life.

This doesn’t mean you can’t have manifestations and you can’t attract anything you want.  In fact, the happier you are, the MORE things you will attract.

It just means to keep things in perspective.  What we all are really reaching for in life is happiness, and we can have happiness now.

Measure your success in your happiness, and let the manifestations come as they will. Enjoy the ride. Not only will you experience more manifestations, but you’ll live a joyful life, and in the end, a joyful life is the only thing that matters.

XO, Andrea

So well said, it’s all in the happiness and the more happier we are the more merrier!!! I’ve changed loads since I’ve known you, read about your articles, interacted with you (I’m blessed to have found you!!) I feel good in fact damn good about the positivity that I’m possessing within and reflecting it out, being conscious about the vibration that I would want to be (there by aligning myself with the universe/source energy) I’m really excited about this new journey that is happening with me!!
