We create our own definition of success.
Stop comparing yourself to other people’s version of success - you are not them. The journey into letting go of self doubts and fear of what others think is a long and difficult one, but so worth it in the end. When you attune yourself to your own goals and start to believe in yourself, people and opportunities will enter into your life that fit authentically with your wants and desires.
We have the ability to change our lives. When you have trust in yourself, love yourself, and support yourself, you will be rewarded! This isn’t always easy and might require you to undo some self destructive habits along the way, but the journey that you take to get there will be just as rewarding as every destination that you get to.
The more I delve into the world of entrepreneurship and start to share my stories and lifestyle, the more I realize that my life is turning into a life that I love. It might not be the traditional view of success, climbing that corporate ladder in the typical 9/5 job, but that’s not the life that I want, nor is it how I define success. As I learn to put my trust in the universe and trust in myself, I am beginning to sync my mental process to align with the things that I want in my life. As I do this, my goals become crystal clear and I become more and more confident that I am on exactly the right path.
Even as I write this, I am terrified of posting it to social media. I have always lived in fear of what others think of me, and have avoided being my authentic self simply because I thought someone, somewhere might not like it. Instead of choosing happiness, I chose to exist in the world as half of my true self, and half of what I thought the anonymous “them” wanted. In allowing myself to be half of a person, I subconsciously was also denying myself of half of my potential and half of my success.
Learning to love yourself, your true self, means letting go of the fear of what everyone else thinks you should be… because all you’ll ever get back is exactly how much of yourself you’re giving out.
Now go find your happy.
