“There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself.” – Henry David Thoreau
Most of us define our self-worth with our net-worth and base our life’s decisions on that factor, which, indeed is 100% wrong.
In the end, what matters is how you value yourself – not how others judge you.
- Being self-aware – what you bring to the table – not how much – that makes the difference.
- Learn on your strengths and weaknesses – work on them.
- Constantly, keep improving, so you develop as a better version of yourself – not for others – but YOU.
When you look back, you won’t remember having this bank balance or spending X amount of money on mundane stuff – what you will cherish is, showing gratitude towards yourself and others; working and improving towards a better you; earning respect because of your value.
