The Butterfly Ball

Step 10 Love

Today we look at our last step to success, love. Love is the most powerful emotion that we as human beings have. Love will drive a person to do more than any other emotion. It is the emotion that we all want to feel and we will do anything to get it.

Why do we want love so much? The feeling of love gives us a natural high and makes us feel wonderful. It makes us feel alive and that we can conquer the world. It fills us with happiness, allowing us to see the world in a better light.

It also makes us feel instantly successful. We can stand tall and proud knowing that just by being who you are someone else thinks that you are the best thing earth. And let’s face it, you are and don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise.

The best thing about love is the state it puts us in. The successful happy feeling that loves gives us, helps to open our eyes to more possibilities. Now that you are looking at the world differently you will see more than ever before and you will also being willing to take more chances.

The best thing about love is that it does not have to come from only one source. The love shared between couples is normally the love that sends us soaring into the stratosphere. There is nothing better than spending time with that special someone.  Starring into their eyes and holding them close. Then when you are away from them your thoughts are consumed by their smile. You try to be a better person because of them and do more to impress them. You lose weight, take that promotion and start living life again. However this is not the only area in which we get love.

The love shared between a parent and their children is also incredible. Most parents live a wonderful life feeling incredibly successful because of their children. Just as like with your partner, you work harder to be a better person for your children. There is nothing better than watching them smile and grow through life. Receiving that hug and kiss from your child each night is fantastic and fills you with unparalleled joy.

For those that do not have a partner or children, they are not left out of the equation. There is also the love shared between people and their pets. Just like your partner or children, you also love to make you pets happy and do more them. You also enjoy the fact that they think you are the best person in the world. They make you feel needed and they also love you. I love it when my cat jumps on my chest and falls asleep feeling safe and secure. I also know my Labrador thinks I am the bestest foodage bringer person in the wholest world. And I love his floppy ears.

It doesn’t matter from where, who or what you receive love as long as it is important to you. If you can get it from all three then that's great. If you receive it from just one source, then that’s great as well.

Just remember, to get love in your life you must first put love out. You will not get love if you hide your emotions away. We often hold back in showing our love because we are worried about getting hurt, but what good is a life without risk. Would you rather not take the risk and never get to know that person or would you rather take the risk and have a chance of getting to know them. They may say no, but at least you know where you stand and can move on. So if you love someone, then take a risk, show them some love and then you can move on from there. Don’t let another day go by thinking “if only.”

Well that’s it for the ten steps to success. I hope you have enjoyed reading this as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you. This is not the end however. I will be back next week looking at what success means to you, then I will look at some easy steps to make money on line.

Until then, smile, laugh at yourself, make others feel good, relax, be proactive, stop being jealous, continue to learn, exercise, let your emotions go and love.
