This is what we spoke about during the episode

  • Comparison with others can be a trap as it often leads to overlooking your own progress and accomplishments. So it’s crucial to set realistic and personalised goals.
  • It’s important that we redefine our sense of achievement in terms of personal development, fulfilment and the impact that we make. Rather than the external validation or societal standards.
  • What’s your own idea of success? Stop and look at what you see as success and change it if needed. Make sure your goals aren’t someone else’s goals.
  • Embrace your journey. Act for the sake of the action itself, not for the fruits of your actions.
  • The true magic lies in the day-to-day moments.
  • Check in with your goals and make sure they are realistic.
  • Practise gratitude regularly. Reflect and appreciate what you’ve already accomplished.
  • Focus on your continuous growth.

It’s never too late to redefine what happiness and success mean to you!
