By: Andrina Smylie

Are you tired of feeling like you're not living up to your full potential? Do you find yourself striving for success, yet feeling unfulfilled and disconnected from your purpose? At Living Illumination, we understand that true success is about more than just external markers like wealth and prestige. It's about living a fulfilling life that aligns with your passions and purpose. In this blog, we'll explore the five elements of success that, when practised together, can help you unlock your full potential and achieve your goals. So if you're ready to start your journey towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life, keep reading.

  1. The Foundation of Self-Love

At the core of any successful journey lies self-love. By cultivating self-love, you enhance your confidence and self-trust, enabling you to move forward in your journey with ease and grace. Loving yourself means respecting yourself, taking care of your needs, and recognising your inherent value. It means being kind and gentle with yourself, especially during difficult times. It also means recognising that you are deserving of love and that it's okay to prioritise yourself. Being honest with yourself is another important aspect of self-love. As I discussed in a recent blog post, love is essential in all relationships, especially the relationship you have with yourself. Read last month’s Blog here: “Beyond Romance: The importance of love in all Relationships”. Building on that idea, at the core of any successful journey lies self-love.


  • Living in the Present: Embracing the Journey

  • Do you find yourself dwelling on past regrets or anxiously anticipating an uncertain future? Embracing the present moment is essential for achieving success in life. In a world that's fast paced and full of distractions, it's easy to get caught up in the past or the future and lose sight of the present. However, being present and fully engaged in the moment is the second element of success. 

    When we are present, we become fully immersed in what we are doing or experiencing. It's a gift that we can offer to ourselves and those around us. By embracing the journey and being present, we can become more resilient and adaptable, better equipped to handle challenges and uncertainty, and more capable of achieving our goals. Don't let past regrets or future worries hold you back. Embrace the present moment and all the opportunities it has to offer.

    1. Discernment: Making Conscious Decisions

    Let's talk about discernment, which is the third element of success. It's all about approaching the world with sensitivity and making conscious decisions. By reading energy and strengthening our intuition, we can discern what's best for us and choose the right path towards opportunities and relationships that align with our values, resulting in a more positive and fulfilling life. Not only that, but this ability can also help us create opportunities and build better relationships with those around us, ultimately leading us towards a more meaningful and successful life.

  • Personal Responsibility

  • Personal responsibility is the fourth element of success, crucial for spiritual growth and self-discovery, and it encompasses the concept of accountability. Personal responsibility means taking ownership of our actions and the consequences that follow. By taking ownership of our actions and choices, we open ourselves to a deeper understanding of ourselves and our role in the world. By being more aware, we can shape our perspective and interactions with others, leading us towards a more happier life. Taking personal responsibility also means that we are in control of our lives and can actively work towards creating the outcomes we desire.

  • Purposeful Action

  • The fifth element involves identifying our goals and taking concrete steps towards achieving them. It's important to note that purposeful action isn't just about taking any action - it's about taking action that is aligned with our values, purpose, and passions. When we take purposeful action, we can approach challenges with determination and resilience, as we are driven by a deep sense of meaning. It helps us to stay focused and motivated, as we can see the direct impact of our actions on achieving our goals. 

    By incorporating the five elements of success into our lives, we can take a big step towards achieving our goals and unlocking our full potential.
