How To Gain Ultimate Success

“The value of the individual life is not measured by the quality of possessions, but by the quality of existence”.

The above quote is by Christian Larson in his book “The Ideal Made Real” (p. 109). It is easily one of the best of many books I’ve read on personal development. I’ve read it several times, and it seems like each time, a different part of it catches my attention.

What is the significance of the quote? Based on the other information in the chapter, he is saying that instead of striving to achieve “things” and material success, it is far more important to strive to be the absolute best you that you can be. We are all blessed with different personalities. Knowing this, let your unique personality shine as brightly as it can.

I will share more quotes from the chapter that I believe can bring the point across far better than I can…”to find your personality passing through a transformation process, bringing out into expression the finest and best that you can picture in your ideals is something that will add immensely to the joy and worth of living. In fact, this alone would make life not only worth living, but so rich that every moment would become a source of unbounded satisfaction itself” (p.110).

I will add one more…”the average person usually asks himself how much money he can make during the next ten years, but why should he not ask how much happiness he can enjoy during those same years, or how much brilliancy he can develop in his own mind or how much more beautiful he can become in body, character, and soul? He would find that by living for these latter things, he would not only perpetually enrich his life and live a life that is thoroughly worth living, but he would find that the earning of money would be much easier than if he simply lived for material gain alone”(p.110-111).

Once again, the message is this. Focus on being the best person you can be at all times. See the beauty in the unique personality God has given you. Constantly remind yourself that His perfect and loving spirit is a part of you. Be love, beauty, kindness, joy, and all of the other fruits of that Spirit.

When you are the best you that you can be, you are setting yourself up for success. You are more attractive and positive, and you will be drawn like a magnet to positive and successful situations. You will have the confidence to act and take full advantage of the opportunities. Most importantly, you will enjoy a life of happiness, satisfaction, and success. That’s a life we all strive to live. Enjoy those wonderful blessings : )

As a footnote, an acquaintance of mine provided me a free copy of the e-book I mentioned above. If you would like a free copy for yourself, leave a comment or contact me, and I will be happy to share. The book has helped my life immensely, and I believe it will help you in the same way : )

  1. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. The book that really caught hold of me and radically altered my personal path was ‘Unlimited Power’ by Tony Robbins. He explains true power means power over self, understanding how to channel who you are to follow your path. He is not a religious figure, but his words sure sound that way to me.

      Thank you so much for the comment. Believe it or not, I’ve only started watching/listening to Tony Robbins recently, even though I’ve heard for a long time how powerful his messages are. I’ve been meaning to read one of his books, so I’ll take you up on your suggestion : )
