The very best kind

You have worth and unique value. You are more than enough.

The world may seem to discredit you, or even oppose you, for one reason or another. Yet you have value that goes far beyond the superficial considerations of the world.

Fulfillment doesn’t come from trying to become someone you’re not. It comes from expressing, in each moment, the unique and genuine person you truly are.

The success that matters is the success you achieve at making your own special contribution to life. The success that matters is the success of expressing your own unique value.

There are things you are able to see that no one else can see, things you are able to do that no one else can do. True success comes from seeing those things and doing those things, with an attitude of gratitude and generosity.

Rather than struggling to fit yourself into someone else’s idea of success, define success for yourself, based on who you are. For that is, by far, the very best kind.
