"The lack of clearly defined success is what keeps one’s dreams and happiness just out of reach of their reality."
Think about the goals you're running like crazy to accomplish. Think of the promotion you want. The job you'd love. The cars, the houses, all of it.
What are you chasing?
The thing is most people know what they're chasing but few people know why
they're chasing it.
Is it because those are things that mean something to you or is it just because they mean something to those around you?
When was the last time you sat down to define what success really means for you?
It's so easy to get caught up in societies definition... That's usually the money, the paycheck, the status, the title, the clout. After all, it's the only thing that can easily be compared, so it's the thing that get's talked about. My last year at university all people wanted to know was what the job paid and was it a name that everyone knew. There was no talk of whether it was something they actually wanted or something they were good at.
For most of us that comparison stuck.
So we forever adopt, often unconsciously, someone else’s definition and claim it as our own. Then we start to base our biggest life decisions accordingly.
All of a sudden we are busting our ass to live societies dreams, giving no thought to our own.
Is it any surprise why so many people can't get a grasp on their passion, let alone live it?
