All situations must be mutually beneficial

Success - This is the perfect agreement that takes care of both parties and not one person taking advantage of another.

Some people think in terms of their happiness or their goals. They may believe that getting whatever one wants means that they have succeeded.

The fact is that this is not the true definition of it at all. Even more important, the true definition of it is much, much better.

What does the word this word mean to you? If you gain an entirely different viewpoint, to succeed will not only be easier to come by, but also more fulfilling.

Perhaps you have a job, or have been thinking about a career goal for your future.

You may think that earning a nice income and doing the kind of work that you love will mean that you are a success.

If you think about the person or the company you will be working for, you will see that there is more to success than what you yourself can gain or accomplish.

You will be contributing your skills, your time, and your input, while you are doing your job.

This is a mutually beneficial situation, as your contributions are of great value to the company.

When you think in terms of giving, and give your best, this is one of the best definitions.

You can strive for success in your relationships with other people. A relationship is a success when it is mutually beneficial to both persons.

Whether you are thinking about a friend or a member of your family, you know what makes a good relationship.

The positive communication, heartfelt giving, admiration for the other person's unique personality and talents, and acceptance of differences are all qualities which make a relationship a success.

When you do not think much about what the person can do for you or give to you, your focus is on how much better your life is from this person being in it.

While personal gain is important in life, it is not nearly as important as the viewpoint you have on the subject.

When you place as much emphasis on what you can contribute, every aspect of your life can be successful.

You will know that being selfish is not a good approach, and that everyone benefits if you are not-- including you.

This viewpoint can be the start of giving as much as you gain, and appreciating everything that comes to you.

You will begin to see your life as victorious, and how fulfilling it is to contribute and share your blessings with others.

What does it really mean? It means that when you give your best to the world and to the people in it, you will be setting the stage for the best to return to you.

Everything from your relationships with other people to your career goals to your special talents will take on a new meaning.

When every aspect of your life is mutually beneficial to both yourself and the people in your world, you will know the true meaning of the words " to succeed."

Learning from my Parents Mistakes...

As I look back I now understand how many hardships I did not have to face if I had taken my parents advice.

Now I will help my children break this cycle and capitalize on all this valuable insight.

Perhaps your parents had limitations which you do not have. Perhaps they made mistakes in their lives.

Whatever your parents' younger years consisted of, it is likely that they want better for you.

If your parents made mistakes when they were younger, they have probably learned a number of valuable lessons from those mistakes.

They learned that mistakes do come with consequences.

Some of those consequences can take many years to overcome, and some cannot be overcome at all.

They also learned that avoiding mistakes is much better than dealing with the consequences and the resulting hardships.

You can learn from your parents' mistakes regardless of your age.

They have had years of experience in learning what works and what does not.

They have learned which courses-of-action leads to hardships, and which ones lead to achievements.

Whether they learned this from making errors, or from limitations which they had in their lives, your parents want a better and brighter life for you.

When your parents' guide you, they are trying to help you to avoid making the mistakes that they made.

They are helping you to avoid unnecessary hardships, and take the course-of-action, which will result in a win--win situation.

When you leave yourself open to their guidance, you will have a better chance and more opportunities than your parents had in their own lives.

You must always keep in mind that your parents always want what is best for you even if their guidance tends to come off a bit harsh, pushy, or very matter of fact at times.

Just try to keep your emotions in check and remember to see their true hearts intent.

They are honestly and truly just looking out for your best interest through tough love.

Instead of putting time and energy into overcoming mistakes, you can set your sights on your goals and focus on attaining them.

You will see that you have more potential than you had realized.

This is a wonderful gift which your parents want to give you, by guiding you in the right direction.

All you need to do is accept it, in the spirit in which they are offering it to you.

Choosing to follow your parents' guidance will break the cycle. You, and the children that you may have someday, will not have to endure the same hardships which your parents experienced.

When you listen to and follow their guidance, you will be more equipped to succeed.

Not only will this make your own future much brighter, but you will also be setting a good example for your children and future generations.

Everything in life is choice driven!

Choice is a wonderful word.

It can open up an almost limitless range of opportunities, and be one of the most important keys to your achievement.

If you have not thought about it yet, you may not know why the word "choice" is so significant.

Not only is it significant, but you will rarely have success without it.

The sooner you know why you need choice, the sooner you will be on your path to greatness.

First, you can think about what the words "to succeed" mean to you.

This, in itself, is a choice. The reason is that your definition may be very different from someone else's definition.

Your definition may be a specific job or career, or a certain lifestyle.

Your best friend or your brother may have an entirely different view of what it means to him.

When you choose your very own definition based on your own interests, talents, and goals, this may be your first sign that in order to succeed you have to begin with a choice.

Second, whether you are thinking about long-term goals or your everyday life, choice is a factor which you cannot do without.

Life continuously presents challenges, opportunities, and options.

Choice is the all-important factor which determines whether these challenges, opportunities, and options will work for you, or whether they will not.

You may have heard people say that they "had no choice in the matter."

While in some instances obligation or circumstances can reduce a person's options, failing to see choices should never been taken as a way of life.

If you want your life to be what you can make of it, making your own choices whenever possible is the way to do it.

When you are considering the word "choice" as it applies to your future success, you can be excited about all of the opportunities that this word opens for you.

Not only do you have a choice for your future goals, there are plenty of choices open for how to attain them.

When you put some careful thought into it, you will discover that some choices work better than others.

Your future goal may require a certain type of education, experience, or a talent which you possess.

The more you learn about which choices work the best, the more effective you will be at planning your path in life and moving steadily along it in the right direction.

If you really think about it, it is true that everything in life is choice driven.

It can be as simple as choosing the clothing styles that look the best on you, or choosing to make healthy foods the basis of your everyday diet instead of filling up on snacks and junk food.

It can also be a fulfilling process of choosing your goals in life, and learning about what you need to do to attain your goals.

Choice is a fundamental part of a person's human dignity.

The more experience you gain in making choices, the more likely you will be to make good ones throughout your life.

You are building your future with the choices you are making today.
