How do you measure your success? Is it by how much money you make? The clothes you wear? The car you drive?
What about the success of others? Stop for a second and think about who your friends are. Do they determine how successful you are? Have you neglected your childhood friends for your new country club friends? If he/she isn’t dressed nice then certainly they can add no value to your life, right?
This was one of my favorite quotes:
Most people make a strict correlation between how much time and love and respect they’re willing to accord us based on our position in the social hierarchy. That’s why we care so much about our careers.
Admit it you’re guilty.
Just the other day I was telling someone, “You know. I’m really frugal, I don’t need much money to maintain my lifestyle, it’s just that if THEY’RE (my peers) making it, I want it.”
Kinda shitty. Really honest.
The point is it’s time to redefine they way we think about our careers, and it’s critical we refrain from judging others based on theirs.
What if you had all the money in the world and never had to work another day in your life. What would you be doing?
Go Do That!
