Things are looking good, your career is on the rise, you have a young family, nice house, nice cars and success might as well be tattooed across your forehead. The status of your social media profiles simply read “succeeding.” You are in the who’s who, 40 under 40 and your latest promotion has you slated to be the next bigger thing.
While you are busy succeeding, your children are busy growing and you don’t even realize it. While you are busy succeeding, you are not spending quality time with your spouse.
Time is fading and your success is clouding your ability to see what’s happening. Not only are you looking past what’s happening, the intoxicating nature of your perceived success is allowing you to justify your absence and lack of focus on the things that really do matter.
Time is passing and success is continuing to knock on your door.
Due to unexpected events and circumstances, you’re forced to pause long enough to reflect upon what you had been perceiving as a success.
Suddenly, you realize.
You Thought That You Were Succeeding But You Actually Failed Big Time.
