The reality is, everyone feels behind. No matter how much you achieve, because that’s human nature, it’s never f*cking enough.
So in my opinion, success and happiness is really just a recipe – made up of the balance between contentment, gratitude, and the hunger for wanting more.
The recipe goes awry if there’s too much contentment and gratitude, you’ll quickly go stagnant. You’ll hit a certain point, look around and say, “I’ve done it, I’m good” and you’ll plateau.
I don’t want to just be ‘good’, and neither should you. I want to be better today than I was yesterday and better tomorrow than I was today. I want to continue that process for the rest of my life.
On the other hand, if there’s too much hunger for wanting more, you’ll become a prisoner who’s never happy with your current circumstances.
My advice to you is to follow the recipe, it’s all about balance. Finding the perfect balance will allow you to achieve more while truly being happy.
