This is a real example of someone who succeeds in life. If you were expecting a video that was going to tell you the tricks to become a millionaire in no time, sorry, this is not your video. Let me add that being a millionaire is surely not what you want, even if you don’t know it yet.
How to have a successful life?
It seems that in a generalized way, we all understand that, to be successful in life is to achieve things. Having an education, a job with status, a big house, an expensive car, a perfect body, being a millionaire? All these are material and aesthetic things, things that are outside of us.
We spend our lives stressed and obsessed with getting things and material goods, gurus who assure you that they will make you a millionaire in a short time flourish, because we think that if we become millionaires, we will have been successful, we will feel full and fulfilled and we will be happy.
We do not know very well why we believe this, but the truth is that we believe it and it seems to be a generalized opinion. If we stop to think about why we think that way and why we have that belief, it is perfectly understandable.
Western cultural societies are based on having, on consuming in order to be happy and feel joyful.
Everything in society is geared to make us believe this way, and it works. The government, industry, brands, companies, even the movies and television we consume, tell us the same message over and over again: Achieve things and you will succeed, take this course and you will succeed, drive this car and you will succeed, have a perfect body and you will succeed .
There are so many messages that we receive permanently throughout our lives that we end up believing it as our own ingrained thought, which in reality it is not.
What if this were not the case? Human beings suffer from permanent discomfort, frustrations, insecurities, low self-esteem, feelings of inferiority, etc., so we look for things that make us feel good and do not make us feel full, but this is only a momentary patch that gives us some satisfaction but does not heal our real problem, does not give us peace with ourselves.
We seek to be valued, accepted and recognized by others, so we look for material things to give us value and to be valued, but having all those things is not really being successful in life.
So to answer the question of how to have a successful life, the first thing we have to do is to reflect on what it means to be successful in life.
To be successful, to feel good, to be happy, we cannot value ourselves and others by the material things they achieve in life. To feel good and really succeed in life, we must first know ourselves to understand ourselves, accept ourselves, and love ourselves, only then we will discover what makes us feel good and we will be able to feel successful in life.
We become economically rich but emotionally poor, emotional beggars.
A successful life is to be a good person, to be a good brother, a good father, a good son, a good husband or a good wife, and to be these things we must first be well ourselves, accept ourselves and love ourselves.
The awakening of consciousness comes when you realize that life and success is not about status or money, it is not about getting things. Somehow, we feel that, in spite of having everything, it is not enough and we want more, we don’t value it and we continue in a terrible search to get more and more things.
We must be aware and realize that what we have been told for a lifetime is simply not true, in order to start valuing what really matters and what truly defines a life as a successful life.
We hope that this video, an excerpt from the documentary Enlightenment in Spanish, will help you realize, awaken and live a conscious life.
Don’t believe anything you just read, experiment and think for yourself.
