Recently I have been struggling with feeling pressured to be successful, and have been thinking about what “success” means to me. I still haven’t found the answer, and something tells me I never truly will. What success means to each person evolves as your life evolves. Junior year of high school, success meant passing the ACT, senior year of high school, success meant getting into college and graduating, and success senior year of college pretty much meant just getting through it all.
Now that I have accomplished those and have a job and moved across the country, and I trying to discover what this wave of success means. I want to succeed in my job, but success is starting to mean more than just succeeding at my job.
The other day I found this article below from My Domaine about things we internally have to give up in order to be successful. As I was reading it, the article really hit home for me on a couple of points. I know I’m not the only person out there struggling with the need to be successful, so I hope this can help someone else too!
