“The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one’s destiny to do, and then do it.” – Henry Ford
Success can come in many different forms: money, job title, popularity, number of social media followers, and more. But I think the best way to measure success is whether or not you have become who you are created to be. Of course having a job that provides for your needs is essential, but I believe that money will come after you’ve found what you’re meant to do and begin doing it.
Those who only chase fame and money are losing out on one of the key ingredients of success: passion. If you find a way to use your talents in a way that you enjoy, then it will be easier to work hard. Once you discover what you’re destined to do to make the world a better place and follow your own unique path, then you will finally find success on your own terms. Yes, you will likely earn the money you need and perhaps even gain the popularity you want, but what is most important is that you will become the best version of yourself that you can be.
