Success is subjective, not objective. It is not linear. It does need to have concrete mile markers. It is not contingent on age.

Just because you’re not in the same phase of life as your friend, or sibling, or colleague, or the person you follow on social media, or the person on television doesn’t mean that you’re behind in life.

“Comparison is the thief of joy.” — Theodore Roosevelt

Start recognizing the small accomplishments first.

Create your own definition of success.

Life is a series of decisions that we make on a daily basis.

Strive to become the best version of YOURSELF

“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” — Dr. Suess
