Tom's Summer Shorts Are Back!

"Success Is A State Of Mind” is the 4th in my 2017Tom's Summer Shorts series of holiday press releases sent from my happy home in the sunny south of Portugal


So you have set yourself a goal, doggedly persevered with your endeavours and arrived at a winning conclusion. You've achieved success – right? Wrong!

Because, contrary to what you may have heard or learned elsewhere, true success is a state of mind not a particular achievement. So if you are totally focused on a specific goal and have labeled your arrival there as 'success', then you've set yourself up for a big disappointment.

Yes, there will be a moment of elation at the point of completion … but wait. You now must set another goal and strive all over again! I'm reminded of the guy who having worked for years to afford the house of his dreams, eventually affords it and moves in … and almost straight away starts to yearn for a 'bigger, better' one. Not realising that he will never feel truly satisfied.

So success in the context of achieving a goal is but momentary, a fleeting emotion to be followed by no such feeling until, hopefully, the satisfactory conclusion of the next project.

Now there's nothing wrong with wanting to move on to the next goal. Indeed, you must set them throughout your life. They are your purpose. But don't think of achieving the goal as 'the time when you will be successful and happy'. You need to experience those emotions of success and joy all the time … and starting now!

Success cannot be just about the completion of an endeavour, it is about the endeavour itself, the journey. It is critical to understand this fundamental truth, otherwise you risk being locked into a lifetime of stress, frustration and lack of self worth. Of never feeling successful!

Remember that authentic success is a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment which you experience minute by minute, day by day, every moment of your life. So find success within yourself and particularly in the joy you bring to others. Work at being a successful, caring human being. Then remind yourself daily that you are successful.

Success is a state of mind.

I am Tom Riach. I live and write in the sunny south of Portugal.

It took me some years to establish myself in business but I believe that in life only the most resolute of tryers will prevail and after several years of a bank account in a permanent state of cardiac arrest my perseverance began to pay!

I became a successful Business Consultant, Investment Adviser and award-winning Salesperson and Marketing Professional and I coined the term 'Creative Solutions' to describe my work in devising and implementing innovative approaches to situations in business, commerce and industry (some call it touble-shooting). From my successes I grew my own group of small companies.

By later years I had realised that sheer sweat and toil did not represent the smartest or swiftest routes to wealth. Entrepreneurs, I observed, had always existed able to create fortunes from little apparent effort and I became increasingly fascinated by this phenomenon. I set out to emulate this approach and such was my success that I could 'retire' at an early age to the tranquility and calm of South West France. I later moved on to Southern Portugal.

CONTACT ME – I'll be thrilled to hear from you!

The life of which you dream is HERE within your grasp!
