In this episode, we will discuss the importance of evolving as a person as you become successful over time.
As we have discussed in previous podcasts, success isn’t just about having a big bank account. Many people with lots of money have horrifically unhappy and radically imbalanced lives. Success is about continuously improving who you are, how you live, how you serve, and your relationships with others.
So why won’t most people be successful? Why don’t most people evolve?
The more evolved you become, the more elevated becomes your thinking, behavior, expectations, and standards.
Becoming evolved means:
Balancing the few essentials
The more successful you become — which is balancing the few essential things (spirituality with your God, relationships with those most important to you, your physical and mental fitness and financial well-being) in your life and removing everything else — the less you can and will justify low quality. Lets be real; accepting “just ok” leads to a low level of quality in your life. Its that simple.
Before you evolve as a person and accept “just ok” as the norm:
So, as your vision for yourself expands
A quote from Wayne Dwyer, a truly beautiful person and a great life philosopher of our generation - “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
As your image of the future you expands; you realize you have to make certain adjustments. You need to cut back on spending all of your time and effort on crap that doesn’t benefit you in your evolution as a person.
So, as you become more successful and evolve as a person:
So, as you increasingly become successful, evolve as a person, continually improve your world around you, and as you consistently make better and better choices, your identity changes. Your environment changes. Your confidence and abilities change. You begin taking on much bigger goals. You begin recognizing and appreciating how far you’ve come. You begin collaborating with brilliant people. You transform yourself over and over, all the while continually going deeper and deeper into your “why.”
Lets be real, most people won’t be successful. Most people won’t evolve and progress. But you will. You know it, and you can feel it. You’ve already begun. And every day, you’re taking one step closer. Soon enough, you’ll fully commit to being who you know you can be. Once you pass that point of no return, nothing will stop you.
I leave you with a quote to consider that sums up this podcast as we all work to become successful and evolve as the persons we ultimately wish to become:
