There’s a lot of different things that people aspire to achieve in life. Some want to be extremely wealthy, others famous or powerful. Many want to travel the world, start a business, write a book or become a big-time in the corporate world. Success doesn’t look the same to everyone. Our goals are as unique as our personalities.
I often think about what success looks like to me, and I always come back to a simple luxury: ‘choice’. I want to wake up and choose to spend my day doing what I want, where I want and with whom I want. Success (to me), is having the financial independence to control the majority of my waking-day… and the freedom to be able to make these choices. I don’t want to live for the weekend: I dream of owning the week. Control over my time, and a chance to shape my own destiny. Well, that’s the goal… but until then, I’ll choose to appreciate every moment that is mine.
