A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
— Bob Dylan

Buy a bigger house!

Update your phone!

Work hard now and enjoy your retirement!

Wear this cologne!

Wear these shoes!

Change your fashion, change your life!

These messages have swept a generation of millennials right off their feet. As we attempt to take the short cut to ‘destination success’ we sacrifice that which really bring us any joy at all. Things like family. community. relationships, health, contribution and faith are completely ignored. We know it, but we refuse to admit it.

We’ve lost our minds a little bit.

How long are we going to buy into this bullshit?

Until we understand that our joy will not be influenced long term by our shoes or boat or house or car, we’re going to be running around in circles. Start taking time to look at what the happiest people in the world are doing, and make changes to your lifestyle based on that. Because until you understand that no amount of money will satisfy that longing for more that you have…

You’ll never be content.
