And yes , i never said success but achievements too. Different lives, different experiences.
What i feel, the world conditions us to follow the sheep, we get countless expereinces to realise we can be different, the lucky few do it first up, some get it half right and learn from it while many look at such experiences as mistakes and become the brooding sheep.

Sometimes you just take it for granted. And you stop evolving... you loose momentum and the benefits begin to fade away. @Deb 🐝 Helfrich View more#6 Let's say instead of success (too broad)... Achievements...
Sometimes you just take it for granted. And you stop evolving... you loose momentum and the benefits begin to fade away. @Deb 🐝 Helfrich is right about being clear on knowing what makes our essential selves come alive. I've been getting better at it by connecting more and feeding my mind with things that help me understand the bigger picture. Success does not automatically fuel the drive. Finding meaning does it. I am learning that we gotta keep the main thing, the main thing. :) Take care. Close13/03/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichThis is an artfully crafted post, @Mindful Tee. Really pleased to have you sharing your story and your Mindful Tees on beBee.
Resistance is the mental equivalent of friction and it is very debilitating. Most especially when we aren't conscious of some of the underlying habits that put us into a repetitive cycle of preempting ourselves just as things seem to start humming smoothly, we encounter drag and lose all of the momentum.
In some respects, a large part of this problem, though, is that we are in conflict. What we think we want, most likely because of societal pressure, is not what truly makes our essential selves come alive.
Doing the difficult work of gaining clarity on what makes us, as a unique individual come alive, and taking that as our first principle for making the major decisions of our lives can have a revolutionary effect on the consistent return of that feeling of overwhelming drag just as we start to cruise along the freeways of life.
However, you have nailed the aspect that we need to always work to be connecting with other people. Sharing the movement of life with a community is a fabulous way to draft in the slipstream as people lead during the parts of life that they find enlivening, pulling others along in their vortex.
Hopefully you will find beBee to be a fruitful part of your journey!
