As 2019 comes to an end, we tend to ruminate on all that we have accomplished throughout the year. All too often, we also tend to concern ourselves with all that we haven’t done, minimizing the accomplishments, both big and small.
Take the time to focus less on monetary, professional, or obvious successes, and more on those actions that you took to make the world a better place. It could come in the form of a much needed smile to a stranger, volunteering your time or donating to a worthy cause, praying for one who needs it, providing a shoulder to cry on, showing compassion where needed., and so much more.
All of these things form one’s character, and make them who they are. It is what makes life worth living — doing whatever you can to make your corner of the world a better place in which to live in. This is success.
