“There are many aspects to success; material wealth is only one
component. …But success also includes good health, energy and
enthusiasm for life, fulfilling relationships, creative freedom,
emotional and psychological stability, a sense of well-being, and
peace of mind.”
This is a photo from my place as I finished Chiropractic school and
set out into the “Real World”. Not many material possessions (yes that
was my bed :). Years on, the material possessions have not increased
much at all. It feels good to know my priorities have not changed.
What one cannot see is drive, determination, passion, relationships,
memories, thoughts, self esteem, peace of mind, information,
education, responsibilities, and the like. Though not tangible, how
great to be living a fulfilling life.
“When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong
current that will carry him to places he had never dreamed of when he
first made the decision.”
I recall a sense of uncertainty at the time I took this photo. Yet, I
knew that if I stayed true to answering the question “How can I help
all those I come in contact with?” all would fall in place.
Be sure to make some time to do the same. Take inventory of where you
are and what you “have” today or this weekend. Look back on where you
were and how the current of your priorities have taken you here.
