“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” – Albert Einstein
Often, we define success by whatever we’ve accomplished. It gives us a sense of fulfilment to feel that we are above the average person whose quest out in the world pales in comparison. But to really know what success entails, we need to change how we perceive our place in this world and the life that we live.
What is the difference between being ordinary and extraordinary? The answer lies within us, and with the extent to which we allow the outside world to define who we are and what we are.
The only certainty that there is, is that there is no end to achieving and attaining success. The road is not a finite one, but a yellow brick road of wonders, questions, people, situations, circumstances, choices and everything in between.
This is the mantra that I will be living by in 2019.
Happy New Year!
