In a society hellbent on being successful nobody ever stops to think about what success is.
Most guys don’t know what success means to them.
All they know is; they want to be successful, so they pursue the things they think that success entails.
Shaped on societies definition, what social media, TV and media tell them it is.
Blinkered by the superficial and oblivious to the fundamental.
They pursuit superficial goals and wind up leading empty lives.
Bereft of integrity. Devoid of authenticity.
Driving a fancy car to a job they hate.
Returning home to a loveless home.
Backloading their life plans for ‘someday’ that never comes.
Exhausted from the poor habits they’ve picked up.
And broken by the stress they’ve chosen not to deal with.
From the outside it looks like Nirvana
But on the inside it’s a sesspit of misery.
That’s why it’s not success…
…if you’ve neglected yourself in the process!
If the means has only been to justify the end.
Then you’ve missed the point!
Real success comes from embracing the process.
Tests of resolve, the forging of confidence, improving oneself physically, emotionally, and mentally.
Having a sense of fulfillment from your livlihood, your purpose.
A loving relationship, raising a family and being a strong rolemodel.
Everything else is just noise.
