No matter how successful you are, how much money you have, the cars, the clothes, the everything that defines you’re rich and proud of your accomplishments, at the end of the day, can you really love your stuff? We live in a world defined by status, brands, abundance, but at the end of your day, you can’t possibly be satisfied with the things you own because you can’t love what you own emotionally.
Love is the most important thing in life. I’ve met some of the most successful men and women and with all the things they own and with all their success it doesn’t matter because they don’t have someone to share it with.
I’m not saying that having an amazing career and being rewarded for it isn’t important, it is, but it’s just not enough.
Love, being in love and having someone to share your life with, that someone that makes you laugh, that brings you joy, that loves you unconditionally, that’s a great definition of success. Because at the end of your life all of the things you had won’t matter, what will matter are the people you loved that loved you back. The love of your life that was there for you no matter what.
Think about it. And remember no matter how beautiful someone is, if you don’t have a loving emotional connection, what’s the point. Look for the real deal and don’t settle, that’s real success.
