The desire for success

Ron Sukenick Desire, Relationships, Strategy, Systems

While the basic desire for success is naturally a part of all of us, what we view as important varies. A broad spectrum exists from improved health and fitness, greater personal development, achievement, travel, fulfilling relationships, a deeper spiritual life, a more harmonious family life, a more exciting social life, more financial freedom, education, personal growth, or more free time.

The desire for success hasn’t changed over time; what’s changed is our perception of the way we get there. We always achieved success through relationship—now we understand that to better help and receive help, we must fundamentally experience this in all aspects of our lives. Therefore, the intention to form solid relationships must be at the forefront of all our interactions.

Many of us know this at a surface level. Bringing this principle to a heightened awareness propels us toward reaching out, tuning into the possibilities, the support, the creativity in relationship all around us.

The driving force of my work is that relationships are primary to everyone’s experience. We are constantly in relationship with our self, with others, and with a greater environment, world, and source. A continuous process of cultivating, attuning and attending to these relationships over a lifetime is part of the human experience we share with one another. Our observation skills, our diagnostic skills, and our remembering what is most important increases the quality of interaction in relationships, and, we would add, increases the quality of life.
