Life is about progression. We are here to progress, to grow, to develop a better version of who we are whether mentality, emotionally, or physically. I've thought about the points in my life when I've been stagnant, and at those moments, I was always so unhappy. I would beat myself down as I was consumed by envy and jealousy of all the good that others were experiencing that was not my own. My success is reliant on purpose and on goals to keep me focused and on my toes. I have to constantly be progressing and working towards something otherwise I don't feel fulfilled. I've often questioned if this was a bad trait. Why can't I just be satisfied, comfortable, and content? I mean many other people have amazing and honorable desires and I seriously admire individuals with those traits. There is nothing wrong with contentment as we are all fulfilled in different ways. I've found that my drive is what makes me ME and makes ME a better person. My need for progression keeps me fueled. It's what makes me happy for others success. Having purpose is captivating. Having purpose is empowering.
