“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I have.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

We have a light within us that shines true and bright when we fulfil our greatest potential is all that we do to be all that we may be. Winning and success are external competitive measures of a culture’s dictate of what winning and success looks like. These measures change as trends change and reflect everything except what we innately are as thriving human beings.

Inevitably, wins and successes will be empty victories if, in the process of attainment, we have given up on our personal truth and integrity to our own light. Love is the name of the light that is within us and it is the love that fires the world and makes this precious life worth living. Committing to your own light and lighting the way for others is the kind of success that has riches and dividends beyond any material imagining. When you are bound to your own light then you are also bound to your own joy. What is it you really want to win at? If it’s life – then just lighten up!
