The measurements we have for success are wrong

We convey ourselves to see success as a higher position in society or becoming the best in the market.

It's fine to have a role model but we should always see what they went through and how many years it took for them to be at that stage. There are no overnight heroes. It's their years of work compounded to become who they are.

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we're doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what's going on around us.

Mindfulness is a natural quality we all have in us. We can use it at any moment throughout our day if we take the time for it. Mindfulness might seem simple but it't not necessarily all that easy.
