The cheesy self-help gurus and self-proclaimed masters of success always repeat the same phrase, "Don't quit. Don't ever quit." Even though it's gotten to be a cliche and is often expressed in a sunshine-and-unicorns way, it is true. Success is hard. The world doesn't owe you anything. You are going to have to fight like hell for every inch of progress. Above all, you have to learn how to finish. You must quit quitting.
What makes your work worthwhile? Is it only worldwide influencers who make 9-figures that should feel good about themselves & their lives? Or can you feel great about life if you're a blue collar worker, a teacher, or someone who doesn't even earn $45,000 in income? Whether it's people who think "happiness is the new rich" or people who equate being famous with being impactful, there's a lot of confusion out there about how to evaluate the worth of a job & the value of a human life.
