I've Given Up The Modern Idea of Being Successful (And You Should Too)

Our perception of 'success' often changes as we grow. When we're young we might associate it with being able to buy anything we want when we enter a store and, as we age, we begin to see it as having a career or a family and a mortgage. Instead of our perception of success being solely focused on items, it becomes more about personal fulfilment along with the perception other people have of us. This is when we become overly absorbed in the stress of being seen as 'living our best lives' when, in fact, this idealistic lifestyle is far from what any of us are experiencing.
