What Does Success Mean to You?

My quarter-life crisis taught me it’s not about money like society tells you

The biggest lesson I learned from my quarter-life crisis is I need a job with a purpose. You could also say I had a purpose crisis.

I thought I did everything to achieve success: getting good money for my job. But when you finally achieve what society told you to do, you will see that it’s not what you wanted.

I had the money, but it’s not the only form of wealth.

Robin Sharma writes about the 8 forms of wealth in his latest book, “Wealth Money Can’t Buy" and I 100% agree with all of them.

In the last generations, it was important to get a well-paying job to support the family. But now I would never be happy with a useless job.

We don’t need to think about putting food on the table anymore, but now we have improved our lives to think about our passion.

Maslow’s hierarchy of needs

Did you learn about Maslow’s hierarchy of needs at school?

I think his observation of human needs is why our generation is looking for self-actualization instead of the best-paying job.
