ACHIEVEMENT is; the act of reaching a goal, an accomplishment and a fulfillment. This is how many of us live our lives. We constantly strive for it and appear to enjoy the acknowledgement we receive with it. As I have referenced before, a quote from the billionaire Warren Buffet; “the greatest achievement in life is seeing the people you LOVE, LOVE you in turn.”
To receive a phone call, a text, an email saying I MISS YOU, I LOVE YOU is an ABSOLUTE ACHIEVEMENT in life. To have someone attentively listen to you as you speak, where you can actually see them using BOTH EARS TO LISTEN. That is an ABSOLUTE ACHIEVEMENT. To have a stranger return your SMILE, that is an ABSOLUTE ACHIEVEMENT. Reaching out and touching another’s HEART/SOUL is an ABSOLUTE ACHIEVEMENT.
Showing one’s VULNERABILITY by being COMPASSIONATE, by showing EMPATHY, by LISTENING WITH BOTH EARS, by ASSISTING others in their quest, in essence open your HEART/SOUL you in turn will acquire ABSOLUTE ACHIEVEMENT.
Yes, we have our goals set forth for us, but we can achieve those goals easier by opening up our VULNERABILITY and thus getting ABSOLUTE ACHIEVEMENT along with our immediate goals. How cool is that? That is a win-win. This is what is considered the CIRCLE. WHAT GOES AROUND COMES BACK WITH MORE.
TAKE CARE, STAY WELL, ALWAYS STAY HEALTHY. THANK YOU.

I love the spirit and intention of absolute achievement in our moments, rather than some destination. Practicing compassion, support and service to others each day. This, I feel, is our primary purpose… not the awards, jobs, material gains… being there for others with authentic and heartfelt intention.
I am grateful for all you have taught me, and want to thank you for being such a loving father, who has taught me to be the human being I am today.
~ I love you.
