The good ole measuring stick. Used for many different objectives. Companies use it to define how they’ll essentially grade an employee. Society’s measuring stick is that of how much you make, what you drive, what you wear, how big your house is…I think you get the point.
Everyone and everything else is going to try to define you and tell you what you should be and exactly how you should do it.
Don’t let them!
The only person that is walking this planet that can tell you who you are is you. The only person that knows your path is you. Just as we talked about before in regards to taking control, take control of your measuring stick. You set the bar for what success in your life means to you.
That may include a nice house. Or for some, that may just be a decent enough car to get from point A to B. It may be having the ability to put food on the table for their family and keep a roof over their head. It may be making sure that their family never struggles and they never have to worry about where or when their next meal is going to come.
The measuring stick. It’s going to look different for everybody. The important thing I want you to get out of this is that you have to know what it looks like for you. Don’t fall into the trap of chasing what somebody else is after. Don’t think that you’ll be satisfied when you get what they have.
Chances are you’re not. And you will never find contentment, never find happiness, never find joy, until you define what success in your life looks like to you.
Only then will you be able to set your measuring stick. When the measure is set, go after it. Do whatever you have to do to get there. Walk, hike, climb, jump, skip. Doesn’t matter what you do, just get there. And when you do, not only grab it, surpass it!
