What does success mean to you? What makes you feel successful? Is it your accomplishments, your life choices, your bank accounts? Or is things you can’t count like the love and laughter in your life?
As much as I live in my “Artsy World of Leslie “, I am just like everyone else and I strive for the ‘Dream’ of being debt free with no money worries. Sometimes in this day to day grind, when I wonder if I will ever get there, I have to sit back and remind myself of my other successes. The ones that only matter to me, the ones that complete my life and money can’t buy.
I have a wonderful loving family and friends that care about me. I am healthy and my work is my passion. These are things that society doesn’t “count” when measuring a person’s success but to me,these are the things that really matter most. We have to remind ourselves that being successful can take on many shades in our lives, and we shouldn’t base our success meter only on money. Money isn’t what makes you happy, it is just a tool that allows you to enjoy your real successes without the worry of bills.
Remember to embrace all the little things that support the big things. Count those little things as successes, because they are the base of everything else in your life. Money is essential to living in this world we have created, but remember to give yourself your other successes too! The ones that may not be tangible but make your life good!
I believe that if we find this balance everything else will fall into place!
We have to work, play, love and care to be successful in this world.
Success is a four letter word, because success is life!
“Creativity is seeing what everyone else has seen, and thinking what no one else has thought.” …Einstein
