Other people are not equipped nor qualified to establish your level of pride. Only you can do that.
I can sit here and write to encourage you, to inspire you, and I can even give you the blueprints to do it, but only YOU can make change happen.
“Knowing your why is an important first step in figuring out how to achieve the goals that excite you and create a life you enjoy living (versus merely surviving!). - Margie Warrell
Each of us has a "why" that we need to solve for, and it's an everyday process.
Culture, especially here in the United States, has led us to believe that success and happiness and "meaning in life" only come when people recognize you. You must be rich and famous, have your face on billboards, drive nice cars, live in gated communities in order to be successful, happy, fulfilled. Stop!!! I beg to differ.
