NEED HELP? 1-800-273-8255 TXT "CTL" to 741741
For a long time I lived under the impression that my success was solely measured upon the amount of material things I had in my possessions, or on whatever other criteria was set forth by another individual outside of myself. I must admit that I hated living like this, I hated feeling like everything I did was never enough, but then one day I came to a tremendous realization. If I am forever living trying to meet other people’s standards, I will NEVER be good enough, I will NEVER feel like I am good enough or like anything I am doing no matter how good it may be is adequate enough because the standards aren’t being set by me. I had to learn how to set my own standards, and that although I don’t necessarily believe that my standards should be limiting, I feel like they should be guidelines that will help shape me into the person I would like to be as a professional and overall human being. I have also learned that success is not defined by material possessions, but rather by the amount of good you do on a daily basis. I know that right now I may not have the best materialistic things, or the fanciest of toys/electronics, but I do know that I make an honest difference in the work I do each an every day and that to me makes me feel successful in itself.
