Success is not so much what we have as it is what we are.
While I like this thought, it doesn’t quite get at what I think is really important. What you have is so unimportant in measuring lasting, world-changing success. I think it might be better spoken, “Success in not so much what we do as it is who we are.” Who are you becoming? That is the ultimate question in regard to success, not what are you doing?
Don’t identify yourself by what you do. Identify yourself by who you are becoming. You are totally in control of who you want to be. That should determine what you do.
