I recently watched a movie “invincible” based on a true story. It occurred to me that we have been conditioned in life, to dream safe and responsibly. We are almost “programmed” to live mediocre lives not to expect too much, to avoid disappointment. But success is not about fame and fortune, if you think it is, you’ll be disappointed when you get there. No, success is about waking up in the morning and living each day with a sense of satisfaction. This comes from following your own path, not the one society or others chose for you. Following g the path which only you can navigate because of the combination of strengths and talents you have within you.
Set your own standards of quality and integrity. Take pride in everything you do. Do it well because it’s a reflection of who you are, not for what you expect to get out of it.
