What is the link between love and success? Does love lead to success? Or does success lead to love? Is there a causal relationship? Is there even a correlation?
There is no doubt that being successful can make you more attractive to some people. Many women, for example, are attracted to men in powerful positions. But we are not talking about attraction. We are talking about love!
Love is elusive for some. And financial success does not equal love. Just ask any rich celebrity: success does not bring you love.
For many of us, there is no link whatsoever. Love is love and success is just that. But for others, love can elevate our dreams, our visions, our selves, and yes, our success. True love makes us stronger in all aspects of our lives, including success and perhaps more importantly, our perspectives about success.
Can you be successful without love? There are examples of people who show us that yes, you can. But maybe we are asking the wrong question. What is your definition of success and when you are successful, does that mean that you are happy?
Most of us looking for love and success are really looking for happiness. The link between love and happiness is absolute–we are happier when we have love in our lives.
