These are worth posting again because I think sometimes we all need to recalibrate our personal definitions of success, especially when we have a 24/7 flow of other people's highlight reels and perfectly-curated glamour shots from social media insinuating that we must be doing something wrong with our lives because everyone else seems so much happier. It's easy to get caught up in that, but you have to remember to set it down every once in awhile and assess it for what it really is: mostly b.s. As a lawyer who has spent most of my practice in the corporate world, I have met more miserable millionaires than I can count. If somebody has a ton of money, but it doesn't make them happy (which it usually doesn't), then I have a difficult time seeing how financial success translates to personal success. There's nothing wrong with doing well financially, but if that is your only (or even primary) metric, you're probably going to find yourself looking back on your life with some serious regrets. I have done well as a lawyer, but I don't even place financial success in my top 10 metrics for personal success. I am much more focused on living a balanced life for which I have time to maintain friendships, do kind things for strangers and help people in need, take care of my mental and physical health, get to the gym 6 days a week and stay swole 🤣💪, give good lives to my dogs, etc. Being successful at those things is far more important to me because I know on my deathbed I will look back and be proud of those things, not that I had a mansion and 20 cars. I mean, if that happens, great. There's nothing wrong with that. But it's just not a priority in my hierarchy of defining my own success. What's important to you? How do you define your personal success?
