We all want to be successful. For some of us, that means finishing the race in record time, having the biggest bank account, being the class valedictorian, or hitting that game-winning shot from half court at the buzzer. But what if we looked beyond what society deems as markers of success and asked ourselves: Are material possessions and past glory the way we want to measure our success?
There’s a new YouTube video posted on my channel today. It took a long time to get it done. On the first video, I had help from friends who raised the quality of what I hoped my channel would be. But on this second video, we hit a few snags along the way, and we didn't meet our deadline.
It was frustrating and demoralizing at times, but my team and I needed to move from failure to failure without losing sight of why we were making these videos in the first place: for you to watch and enjoy and hopefully take something positive away with you. We needed to move from failure to failure without losing hope.
That’s just one of the lessons that my parents taught me about success. You can learn more by following the link in my bio or by swiping up in my stories today.
