I think the best gauge of success is personal growth… Focus on your growth and you’ll inevitably become your best self... I routinely take time to reflect on where I am and where I’m going in life... Regularly checking in with myself helps me to avoid many counterproductive behaviors and negative thought patterns which is hugely beneficial... The more consistently I check in with myself the better decisions I seem to make.
Imagine being someone who did the “right thing,” and instead of listening to yourself you go and get a degree from bum-fuck-egypt university and take a mildly comfortable and moderately-toxic-soul-sucking-salaried-job and then ten years later... BAM! You get laid off... Now you’re 35, you’re uglier than ever, and you’ve still NEVER pursued your dreams… Man, that’s depressing… And no one should live with that resentment, yet millions of people do everyday! I say, FUCK THAT SHIT!!!
But hey, it’s not all bad right? The guy who worked for ten years at Succubus corp probably has got some money saved up (hopefully) and at least now he can pursue his true interests. [Underwater Photography] Yes, he wanted to start ten years ago, and he didn’t, that’s not the point… the point is that he can start TODAY! And as long as we all do things that make you happy and lead you closer to financial freedom, physical perfection, and spiritual enlightenment... We’re going to be alright.
