Do we really need more ‘success’?

Great reminder! We need to stop defining our own personal success by what we perceive those around us define success. On top of that, we need to stop chasing what our ego’s definition of success, because that is unattainable. To quote Ryan Holiday, “When we remove ego, we’re left with what is real. What replaces ego is humility, yes — but rock-hard humility and confidence. Whereas ego is artificial, this type of confidence can hold weight. Ego is stolen. Confidence is earned. Ego is self-anointed, its swagger is artifice. One is girding yourself, the other gaslighting. It’s the difference between potent and poisonous.”
