WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO STOP FEELING LIKE A FAILURE…
Failure….something we all have come to know and feel often. Don’t think for one second that you are alone or that super “successful” person you are probably comparing yourself to doesn’t feel the same way.
Oftentimes, we define success in monetary value. You feel like you have “made it” if you make “X” amount of money.
But what about the stress, the anxiety, the overwhelm.
When did success come at the expense of our mental health?
Yes, bills need to get paid, agreed 1,000%.
But your “success” should not be externally defined, but internally achieved.
Let me explain….
No matter how it is you define success, whether that is how much money you make, how “good” of a mother, friend, daughter, the employee you “feel” you are, how big your house is, how many vacations you can take, the way you are perceived by others, here is a secret I want you to know…
True success has nothing to do with any of those things, and all to do with how you feel on the inside. How happy you are to rise out of bed in the morning. How you find inner peace in the chaos.
It is not about everything going right. It is not about having unlimited amounts of money. It is about finding that inner peace right where you are.
That my friend is priceless and worth more than any paycheck.
So the next time you are beating yourself up, yet again, for “failing,” I want you to do this.
Close your eyes.
Take a breath. And another. And one more time.
And know deep down that….
you have everything you need…
you have everything it takes….
and are exactly where you are supposed to be.
