What if you did exactly what you were meant to do? What would it cost you? Who would it impact? Would the world reject you for it?
Over the last two weeks, I’ve had the chance to travel to England, Scotland, and Iceland, learning about business, society, and myself. Over the last two weeks, I’ve made new friends and built stronger relationships with others. And I’ve even asked big questions of myself, challenging whether or not I am striving for who I am meant to be.
As I was sitting on a plane today traveling back to the USA, I started thinking about a question a good friend posed to me a few days ago. He asked, “what would need to happen for you to feel as if you’ve really made it”.
I answered and then talked through my answer with my friend at length. But as I reflect, I recognize the reasons he kept digging deeper. He asked what would I need to feel as though I’ve made it and my answer required external validation. It required other people seeing me as a success and celebrating that success.
There is no one definition of success, and we all have our own goals and dreams for our lives. We just need to be mindful that there is a place, and an opportunity, for each of us to be our best selves each and every day. That’s all that matters.
My #GrantGoal for this week is to be my best self and to help others achieve their best. The world needs each of us to be exactly who we are supposed to be. There’s place for us.
