Every Success Is Ultimately Failure……..and Vice Versa

by akos on December 16, 2014

Ok, this post has nothing to do with trading directly – as you can see it’s in the “Misc” category.

Have you ever wanted something really, really bad but once you accomplished that particular goal you were left feeling quite empty?

It happened to me numerous occasions.

I believe what we want is not a certain thing; a car, a  house, an x amount of money, a title or an accomplishment that defines success but a certain feeling.

So, we are striving for the wrong “things”.

What we ultimately want is to “FEEL GOOD”. Period.

We want to be at peace with ALL.

There is no person on planet Earth that does not want peace.

On the other hand, every failure (which is hard to define because as Shakespeare stated : “Nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so.”) carries with itself an equal success.

If you fail to do accomplish something that’s not failure, you simple learned what is not working and you need to make adjustments in order to get on the right track.

Did you know that an airplane is about 90% off course. That means the pilots have to almost constantly adjust in order to get to the final destination.

So, the message is the following.

You don’t need anything to be at peace right now. Let me repeat that :


“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.” 
― Abraham Lincoln

And the way you do that is you elevate the level of your awareness, your degree of presence.

You’re power is in the now.

Time (future and past) brings suffering. – as Buddhist pointed out thousands of years ago.

Be more present and you will see how success and failures are only illusions of our personal perspectives.
