5 years ago I only dreamed of the success I have today in my personal and professional life. I have accomplished so many goals and I am so happy for that. So why as I sit here today am I thinking only of what I have not done and what I don't have? I have said to myself so many times "oh if only I could get that contract I would be sooo completely happy and everything will fall into place." Well those contracts have come and gone and I find myself thinking the exact same thing again. Of course it is good to do this because it keeps us striving for better things and never settling. But I realize that I also have to balance that with taking a look around at everything I have accomplished and just feel happy and satisfied with that. I think the thing to do is just realize: it will never be enough. You will never score enough contracts or accomplish enough goals where you can just say "ok I'm done" and that's a good thing. What is not a good thing is being solely fixated on it. There is so much I have gained in my life like knowledge and success that I need to recognize and not just dismiss as not being enough. It is great, it is amazing, and I want more.
