When I was young, I often imagined what it would feel like to ‘Make it’. You know… that state in ones career or ambition where they can say “I made it!”
The question is, what exactly is ‘it’? Is it recognition, fame, wealth, happiness and respect? How does one measure those things? It was only yesterday that it hit me. “I already made it”. In fact, most of us have!
One of my dreams was to release at least one book in my lifetime. I currently have seven titles available, and yes I don’t have worldwide stardom and a billion pounds, but I made my initial dream come true. “I made it”.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that we should stop going further. However, it’s nice to pause along this journey we call life and appreciate the things we have achieved. Our younger selves would be proud of where we are today.
