Haiku: Success…

“Come, seek, for search is the foundation of fortune: every success depends upon focusing the heart.”  Rumi

Haiku: Success…

Behind golden doors
Ruby red jewels whisper
Follow Your heart’s call…

“Let the beauty you love be what you do. There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth.” Rumi

Haiku: Success…

Across mountain tops
Reminders spread like fire
Success is inside…

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.” Rumi

Haiku: Success…

Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be. Zig Ziglar

Do. be. Try. Decide
Our best glows inside Our hearts
Success is soul work…

Have a productive week!

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Success! What is a life well lived to you?

Positive Motivation Tip: Success can be defined in many ways and it is up to us to determine what matters most to us and then go for it… Tempus Fujit!

  2. Success is reaching beyond our limitations and then some…great Haiku!

  3. you are very sweet….
    good morning beautiful woman

  4. “Do. be. Try. Decide” – very inspiring!

  5. Another profound haiku with a great message. I love this one even more because you shared quotes from Rumi. He is the best ecstatic, mystic poet. Your take and photos are rich mind food.

  6. Like you, I believe true success is an inside job. It is how we treat others and our overall humanity. The rest is ego driven.

  7. I forgot to add: RIP Zig Ziglar. He was the best of the best.

    You said it Beautifully, “success is soul work”. I love Rumi. I have a bracelet that my husband Jim gave me last year with a quote by Rumi on it. The bracelet is from Jeanine Payer. It says, “Be a spot of ground where nothing is growing, where something might be planted, a seed, possibly from the absolute. Your post reminds me of this quote.

    • OMG! I bought a Payer necklace at a fundraising auction some years ago… beautiful work she does. Beautiful gift from your hubby too and I love the inscription on it… TY! :-)
