When I look back and connect the dots, the cycle of insights and growth seemed to be emerging from 3C – Clarity of purpose, Choice in actions and Courage take a step.
The events in life and the experiences they presented helped me become observant, resilient and reflective. I started asking questions to myself and others, exploring opportunities and frequently getting out of my comfort zone. I recognized how important my friends, family and well-wishers were, who supported me in all my transitions. My journey had just begun.
When I look back and connect the dots, the cycle of insights and growth seemed to be emerging from 3C – Clarity of purpose, Choice in actions and Courage take a step. Each one of them led to the other, all initiated with great questions and the pursuit for answers. I am very pleased where I am, looking forward to the long journey ahead.
Once in a while, reflecting on the original question of ‘What is success for me?”, I ask myself:
Am I using and giving the best of all I have?
Does my work allow me just to be my true self?
Am I in balance - in my relationships with family, friends and the planet?
Am I at peace with myself?
The moment, my answer to these four questions is a ‘yes’ (or almost a yes), the original question about success becomes irrelevant. The journey seems sweeter than the destination!
