“Success is peace of mind that is the direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” -John Wooden
For life and for anything we’re trying to do, it’s vital to know how we define success. It should be our own, personal definition.
It might take us a while to craft. And we might change and refine it over our lifetime. But we should have one and know it cold. Because it’s our anchor. Our North Star. Our constant way to measure if we’re living up to our own standards and highest ideals. Not subject to the whims of others or the prevailing culture.
