There is more to life than checking the boxes. Our definition of success is defined by the reactions we receive from our parents. We shape our views and goals out of recognition and approval versus what truly makes you happy. How often do you evaluate what makes you happy? What would you do if you had to do it for free? Don’t venture through life checking off the boxes of success only to wake up one day miserable. Most of my life I focused on checking off the boxes. Go to school, check. Get an education, check, get a job, check. Pursue others definition of success, check. Get to the point in life where you define your own success and take steps towards that daily.
