Success……. At What Cost?

It’s far too easy to keep focused on the idea that reaching our goals will determine if we’re successful or not, and the reality is that the important thing is how we live as we’re striving to reach those goals.

Questions: Are we walking all over others in our attempt to be “successful”? Are we keeping our eyes open for opportunities to help others? Do we hold other people hostage to our agenda?

Far too often, when we reach a goal we find that the price we paid to get there wasn’t worth the “success.”

Of course it’s important to remember that some jobs or responsibilities have to be done and that sometimes we must sacrifice time with family or friends in order to accomplish necessary tasks. However, if we don’t find a balance and make sure that we’re trying our best to live in the present moment we face a huge loss. This is a one that cannot be returned to us. We lose days, weeks, months and even years of our lives and with it the potential within each day for fulfilling, meaningful contact with the people we love and who love us.

Goals and dreams, YES, but remember, at what cost?

Happy Now…
