Do you ever wonder if those you deem to be more successful than you are actually happy?

I think happiness and understanding who you are is success. If that means running a startup and being responsible for people’s jobs then fine. I think we are taught that making lots of money, having nice material things, and influence equals success.

I don’t want to stomp on your plan to be unstoppable. I hope you succeed in climbing the mountain you’ve set up for yourself. I just hope you realize when you get to the top.
