Growing Up Is Over Rated

I’m convinced no one truly know what they are doing.

Yes, most people have their plans and goals and work tirelessly to achieve those dreams, but there is absolutely no guarantee that you’ll be successful. Hard work isn’t directly correlated to success; in other words, hard work is overrated, if that’s the only recipe in your handbook to achieving success.

There are so many different elements that go into the success pot, from education background, social ties and even pure luck, or as a Nigerian, let me say Grace of God.

What really is success though? I think it’s important to spell out what success means to you. For some people it’s financial independence, some say health others might say family. On the road to achieving your own desired success, I think it’s easy to be distracted by other people’s ‘success’ and that can make you start doubting the levels you’ve attained or your entire journey to success. Plus, at different stages of life, success takes different form.

Some days I miss when I didn’t have responsibilities or targets because there are times when your dreams weigh so heavily that you almost want to give up. But as they say, if your dreams don’t scare you, then they are not big enough.

So back to the rat race, new week, new set of goals, one day closer to ‘reach this target by this date’ date. I guess when you evaluate what reaching these goals really mean for you as an individual, then, maybe ‘adulting’ isn’t over rated.

I really don’t know though, I’m just faking it till I make it, aren’t we all?
