Look I know that the idea of having millions a swimming pool and thirty Gucci bags seems appealing but is that what your success really looks like? There are so many different ways to be successfully.
When I was younger I felt like success was becoming a doctor or a lawyer and having loads of money and obviously traveling like crazy and all that jazz. And sure traveling still appeals to me BUT, now I want my success to be more about how I feel rather than what I have.
I am not saying that money doesn’t appeal to me, because of course it does. And I would love to one day be able to do things that I can’t right now because I feel like I do not have enough money. But the thing is, no matter how much money you have, if you aren’t at peace within you, you will never be happy.
But you have to figure out what your success feels like, not just how it looks like. Because as we all know, not everything is as it seems.
Do you want to be able to help a lot of people? Do you want people to recognize you? Do you want to be a mysterious person with an amazing talent but no-one knows your real name? Maybe your success is having 50 puppies, maybe its having 5 kids in a house near a beach and you can write your blog every other day. Who knows. But you should figure out, what will make you actually happy.
Some questions to ask yourself while thinking about this:
- Will having X make me want to wake up early in the morning to get my day started?
- What am I ready to give up in order to feel like that?
- Do I want it out of jealousy/ because it looks nice or because it will make me happy?
- Do I want this or does someone else want this for me?
Good luck on your journey!
