perspective

Perspective is all about where you’re standing.


do not stop

Are you getting closer?


avoidance

What am I avoiding? Failure?

Failure is avoidance.


problems

Problems aren’t real.


have it all

The higher you rise,
the farther you fall.
You really will have it all.

Some are young
when they get the call.
You already do have it all.


What is success?

I want to be the greatest artist the world has ever known. But what if the world doesn’t know me? How do I forever shed the need for outside approval? I do what I Love… but if I can’t sustain a living… does that mean I am no good? Or not understood?

I want truth, beauty, NOW.


don’t be jealous of your friends

I have the problem of being jealous sometimes. It even seems worse with my friends successes. It’s horrible to type this, but this is something I need to address.

At first glance it seems to stem from my Love and desire to do everything… I hate missing things. But it has to stem from something deeper than that. I guess I hate not having what I deem “success” (a definition I never clearly defined – maybe that’s the problem?) in what I work hardest for, so when someone else has a positive experience, I reflect it as a failure of myself not to be celebrating something positive too.

The lesson? Friends are me too. We share Love and life, for better or worse. They support me; I support them. I need to let these thoughts come and go without allowing them to lose focus on what I am working towards. Success is internal, not obtained from some outside source or organization. Where there is happiness and Love, focus is success.
