I think “making it” needs a new definition. I have seen what people do in order to “make it”, as in accumulating more and more possessions, and it isn’t a pretty sight. It is all about the process, not the results. It is all about doing what you like, contributing to society, and having a passion. And if that means you feel good, you feel at home, right where you belong, and you’re happy, maybe that is what “making it” should be defined as. At least, this applies in my mind.
