Hello my sweet sweet friends. I have so much to post about, and so much on my heart, but for the sake of this blog post, we are going to talk about progress and success. How many of you strive on success? How many of you work all the time, and always hear, “you work too much.”? How many of you love money? Well in order to have money, you need to be successful right? No…that’s not necessarily true. How many of you are truly happy with the success you have made? What would happen if you chased after progress instead of success? Would you still be as happy? Would you know the difference? These are questions that I want you to think about as you read this post because you can have all the success in the world, but if you don’t see any progress…was it worth it? If you are not even happy…was it all worth it?

Self development is about seeing the progress that you have made… right? What if your self development is learning to save money so that you are not overwhelmed all the time? What if your self development is getting a good job, climbing the ladder until you are at the top? No matter what your self development process is, no matter what you want to accomplish, you should see progress. Maybe you want to lose weight, maybe to you that will be a success…well in order to do that, you have to do all that is required and you need to keep track of your progress because you want to see progress. You can be as successful as you want, but if you don’t see progress in it, what was the point? My point to all these questions is that you want to chase after progress and not just success. I say this because progress can be measured, can be seen, improved…but success…money, can not really be improved. Yea you could have all the money in world, but is your mind on the right track….have you seen any improvement in anything? Maybe your self development is improving your marriage, but you are so caught up in your job and earning money to get that bonus, that you neglect your marriage…was all the money worth it in the end? Is your marriage any better?
I know this seems all over the place but if you can try and follow along, understand, that progress over success is… in my opinion… is so much better. It truly can make you happy…unlike success…can still leave you empty. You don’t want to feel empty in the end, you want to feel like you have accomplished something and you want to really feel like your life is all that you have dreamed of. Let’s chase progress, not just success.
Question of the day:
If you understand this post…great…but if you did understand it…let me know your thoughts on whether you think that chasing progress is just as important as chasing success, not as important, or you feel like it should be a balance?
