The Surprising Secret Behind True Success

Most of us believe that achieving success is an enviable thing. And yet, when we hear of the experiences of people who have attained what we think of as success, they often tell us it just isn’t what it’s cracked up to be.

For one thing, no matter what they get, it’s never enough. They always feel compelled to run after the next proof of success. And the next. As OneJourney founder Guy Finley tells us, “No sooner do you break the finish tape at the end of a race, than you hear the starting gun go off again.”

And then, these successful people never seem to feel better about themselves the way they imagined they would. They often still feel unsure about themselves and are now afraid that others will see right through them. And instead of feeling in control of life, they still have questions about what their lives are really all about.

It makes you wonder if maybe our ideas about success are completely off base. Maybe we’re running after the wrong thing if what we’re truly looking for is a sense of contentment, belonging, and inner peace.

Many of the great sages across time have offered a different view of success. I came across one quote by the 20th century psychologist (and a highly respected and successful man by the world’s standards), William James. He turns the whole idea of success on its head:

William James (1842 – 1910)

I am done with great things and big things, great institutions and big success, and I am for those tiny, invisible molecular moral forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, yet which, if you give them time, will rend the hardest monuments of man’s pride. — William James (1842 – 1910)

There are so many great points made in this quotation. First, James, who, as I said, had great success in life, says he is done with all those things that people think of as important. He has no interest in the admiration of the world. Instead, he values those “tiny, invisible molecular moral forces” that work through individuals and tear down false pride. As he says further on in this quote from a letter to a friend, these individuals are touched by “eternal forces of truth,” and for him, this is the basis of a genuine success that is unknown to the world of “bigness” and “greatness.”

James is talking about an inner success that brings us the deeper understanding and peace we really want. It’s what we might think of as “spiritual success.”

But what is spiritual success? It seems more mysterious than the worldly success we thought we wanted. What is this new kind of success actually about?

Here are three quotes about success by Guy Finley that shed some welcome light:

One sign of true spiritual success is when, at long last, we realize not only are we (always) standing in the right place for us to be in that moment but — even more telling is this: regardless how that moment unfolds… there is no one else on earth we would rather be!

To no longer be a bother to yourself – or to anyone else – is a good working definition of spiritual success.

Unless our ‘productivity’ in life serves to increase our soul’s receptivity to the living Light — then all that we make for ourselves is an emptiness that passing time never fails to reveal.

If you can recognize that this is the type of life you yourself, in your heart of hearts, have always wanted, then there is an audio album by Guy that can help guide you toward this new level of success:
