The type of success I experience hasn't led me down the hallowed halls of success worshipped by the hierarchy of society. The kind of success I know has involved peeling off layers. The poster has the feel that a corporate trainer might have composed it. Where is the amber light for those leaving their comfort zones to challenge their own perceptions?

The sentiments are real, but it's not a two-sided question. The learning is more of a spiral, where you can seem to slip back layers, but with consistency and drive you can achieve higher levels, coming back around to the same point, touching on old challenges, but from a changed perspective given your risen awareness.

What is success?
(you seem to have woken the philosopher in me/us with your question, but then, what would you really expect from a RT crowd:D)

Having said that, each of these are points I have likely brought up in teaching my children, in some form or another.
e.g. I can go on and on about how grateful I am despite a messy situation and often ask what someone can find to be grateful for when unhappy, as I find it helps lift one's spirits and move on from tough moments.
e.g. I have spent oodles of time considering and teaching about forgivenes. Ditto embracing change, loving learning, setting goals and accepting responsibility with as much grace as one can muster...

I'm pretty sure forgiveness (especially self-forgiveness) is one for those spiritual high achievers. The funny thing is, it's not just doing the act of forgiving, itself, but your molecules actually change and morph along with it. OK. You're never going back. You've learned forgiveness, which leads to trust in life, because if you can forgive yourself, you can forgive anything.

Yup! Exactly my thoughts too. :)

Back in my Bliss Bunny phase Spirit taught me there was nothing to forgive, that all was understood through the lens of compassion and within the scope of love. Back integrated more in the 3D now I recall the memory of that knowledge but have to work much harder to keep the openness require to be in a state of pure compassion where forgiveness (something done for the human mind apparently) is never needed.

That’s relieving!
