In the world of measurement, it is easy to get down on yourself.
Checks scale: “I am not fit enough.”
Checks bank account: “I am not rich enough.”
Checks Twitter: “I am not good enough.”
After a while, we begin to believe that happiness is a number. That if we can somehow achieve that number then everything would be better.
By contrast, if we find a new way to measure happiness and success, open the door of possibility a whole slew of things begin to open up.
Did you help someone that needed your help?
Did I create something that made someone smile?
Did I learn something new?
Possibility is endless. Numbers are an illusion.
