Sometimes the idea of success gets distorted. So, when I think of some of the most successful people in the world, I think of immigrants. On today’s episode I am going to spell success in a way that takes you through the steps to accomplishing your dreams by telling the story of a young immigrant boy.
So often in the world today we are surrounded by what society tells us or what family tells us should or should not be. We must learn to look at the world in a way that is different and question what we are being told. So many times, we are pressured by expectations. Understanding that our world does not need to be, nor look like, what the outside world calls “normal” is key when making choices and decisions in our life.
The choices we make dictate the lives we lead. – William Shakespeare
The choices we make in our life all have different outcomes. The choice plus action on that choice equals some result. Sometimes it is good and other times, not so good, however everything is about perspective.
We waste a lot of time and energy being jealous or having envy for what other people have. So, what’s the difference between the two? Often known as the “Green-Eyed Monster” jealousy is defined as feeling or showing desire to be someone or have their achievements and advantages. Envy is a feeling of discontentment or resentful longing aroused by someone else’s possessions, qualities, or luck.
Listen and reflect if you are harboring feelings of jealousy or envy and take steps today to get rid of them from your life. Love you for who you are. Don’t be surface deep. Look into what those people, who you are jealous of or who you envy, did to get to where they are today. Always stay true to yourself and never be tempted by fame, fortune or greed. They will take you down a road that you don’t want to go down.

Indifference is standing by and watching things around you happening and not really doing much about it. You don’t feel one way or another. You have no real interest in liking it. disliking it, there’s no enthusiasm, no real concern; it’s neither good nor bad; it’s being neutral basically. A lot of times people don’t get involved or people don’t do anything about situations until it affects them personally. Why?
Evil prevails when good people do nothing. – Les Brown
Understanding first what success is and how people came to create it, looks very different for everyone. However, most have inspiring stories, and that of Ram Castillo is no exception. Born in the Philippines, he and his family immigrated to Australia when he was a young boy. His parents showed him great love, guidance and told him to dream big. He grew up poor played, had no toys or any great comforts, and he was severely bullied as a young boy. His strength, courage and overwhelming internal belief and perseverance have made him who he is today.
On today’s episode we will talk about how we compare ourselves and others to an idea that we have in our mind about what should and should not be, and how ultimately the act of doing this can be detrimental to our overall success. By doing this we hold ourselves and others to a standard that will ultimately fail, as it is only surface deep. Always remember the Golden Rule from Jones of Toledo, “What I want for myself, I want for everybody!” Love yourself and everyone else… that is true success!
We live in the Age of Social Media where many look for instant gratification as well as self-worth externally, especially teens and young adults. Today we are stuck on the idea of image, what others think of us and value ourselves based on the number of follows or likes we have. In this episode, you will be asked to reflect on your idea of success and how you react to social media, as well as how much you value it in terms of success. Let’s take a look inside!
