The secret of success …

By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC


 

Put your heart, mind, and soul

into even your smallest acts.

This is the secret of success.

~ Swami Sivananda

 


 

How do you recognize success in your life?

 

Someone once told me ~ “Follow your heart and you will never get lost!” I believe that we are all born with special gifts and a purpose on the planet. Sometimes I wonder about mine and then I am reminded that my work has brought much value to many people over the years and still does.

 

What does it mean to – follow your heart? I don’t perceive this to be at matters of the heart but about so much more. What kind of things make your heart sing? What tickles your fancy and makes you squeal with delight? What music moves your body automatically? What smells make your mouth water and your eyes get big when you inhale? When do you jump for joy at the very sight of something? Do you love puppies, kittens, birds, fish, children, babies, baseball, basketball, art, dancing, music, opera, gardening, reading, travel, beaches, mountains? What are the delights in this world that give you juice? What do you get jazzed up about? What do you love doing so much that you really need to have it in your life?

 

These things that you declare as giving you juice and making your heart sing ~ this is how I perceive ~ following your heart. When we can do the things that feed our spirt and touch our soul, we are following our heart. And, the magic trick in this life is to find a way to incorporate as many of these things into our daily life, work life, play life, family life and social life. How can we do more of the things that add excitement to our life while working and contributing to our community? When we can incorporate these spirit lifters into our daily experiences, we are adding value to our Living Fit Lifestyle, boosting our immune system and employing the secret of success!
