Success can take many forms.
Fancy cars, big bonuses, new additions, first homes, second homes, happy hours and weekend getaways. Buy what you want. Build a pile of what you think you need.
Walk through your area and you are likely surrounded by people living out their success story. Money and status grant us certain comforts and security, but underneath that success, how many people are really satisfied and content?
A lot of the contentment and satisfaction in our lives comes from being objects of gratitude. We have been relied upon, trusted, made an impact and been present in someones life and they feel grateful for that presence.
We don't own that gratitude, yet we benefit greatly and derive deep satisfaction and joy from it.
Instead of chasing success, maybe we should pursue more opportunities to impact the lives of others.
