It’s hump day beautiful souls! I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far! I’m ready to get you your cup of PositiviTea so that you can finish out the week strong! This week’s quote of the day is about success! So many of of us have our own opinion of what success looks like. I want to tell you that you’re all right. Success is not meant to look the same to everyone because different things make people happy.
Take money for example. Some people look at how much money someone makes and says that’s success. They see the things that their money can buy, and couldn’t imagine that person being unhappy. But what they many not know, is that person works 13 hour days for that money. They may never get to see friends and family. Their “vacations” that they go on are really work trips that they don’t seem to enjoy. The money that they’re making makes everyone else happy, but it doesn’t make them happy. What’s it worth to make all the money in the world if you never have the time to spend it or no one to spend it with?
The success won’t come until you find what makes you happy. What makes you happy may be having the time to take annual vacations with your family for however long you want. Do you have to be the richest person in the world to do that? No! But I’d still consider you successful. Your happiness may come from being able to work every day with a group of people who challenge you to think outside the box and teach you new things about your field. That’s a feeling that not many people can say they have. But that’s why in that way, you’re successful. Do you see where I’m going with this?
It’s not necessarily about money or fame that make you successful contrary to popular belief. It’s about finding what makes you happy and realizing that happiness is the key to your success. Not the other way around. So I challenge you this week to put this week’s PositiviTea quote of the day to the test. Make a list of what makes you happy and see how many of those things are actually happening. If it’s none of them, then it’s time to make some changes! Have a great day, and don’t forget to spread some PositiviTea!
