Episode Summary –
If you find yourself working hard but not getting the desired outcomes, it may be time to step back and evaluate if what you're doing is fulfilling you. It can be easy to get caught up with what's popular or profitable, so take a moment to reflect on what makes you happy and gives your life meaning. Chasing your passions and staying true to yourself is how we achieve real success.
“Make purpose-driven decisions in life instead of being driven by blind ambition. Let your purpose be your guide, and success will follow.”
