When I was 19, I started my first business. When I was 22, I was a huge failure at that business, newly married, and in massive amounts of debt. Obviously, the perfect recipe for success I had concocted was missing a key ingredient. I didn’t find it till years later.
It took me a failed marriage, working for some awesome companies, more failed business ideas, multiple mentors, two college degree’s, and traveling around the world to figure it out.
For me, at the end of the day, it’s no longer about the checklist of things we are expected to accomplish when we’re 18 and leave mom and dad’s house.
It’s no longer about trying to find some magic metric to measure or define success.
It’s no longer about worrying what those around me may think of my career path.
Significance isn’t created or measured by metrics. Significance is created by understanding that gratitude is a verb and measured by your actions in response to what was done for you.
For me, I’ve found that success, significance, and peace in one’s journey are found through awareness and measured through our response.
You can have that peace. It’s just a matter of being aware of your journey.
