Success Gets You Half Way

Success gets you half way to freedom in life. Emotional intelligence, to learn compassion for yourself and others, is the second half. This is the journey to greatness and emotional freedom. This is why I coach.

Have you ever felt the way Jennifer Moss, author in a Harvard Business Review Series on Emotional Intelligence, describes here, “Happiness feels intolerably elusive for many of us. Like fog, you can see it from afar, dense and full of shape. But upon approach, its particles loosen, and suddenly it becomes out of reach, even though it’s all around you.

I used to feel this way too.

Miami to Malibu

My daughter sent an early morning photo of her enjoying the sunrise on the beach. Yesterday Miami. Today Malibu. While that might be the success story, the real joy is how she feels. She has a generous income yet sees she could live on $2 tacos a day. Her real interest in life is discovering freedom within.

Bootstrapped

Her story reminded me of my days of eating peanut butter and bread on my first journey to freedom based on success. I told her so. She called me a bootstrapper. I smiled.
