“What is the point of success if you’re miserable or you’re not prioritizing your values?”

When it comes to the meaning of success, a lot of words come to mind—stability, prosperity, achievement and more—but what would success be without joy?

Joy is one of the most important values that success should be founded upon. If you aren’t happy while you’re attempting to achieve your goals, then you’ll lose the fulfillment of success all together.

So as you’re working to achieve your own version of success, remember to stay true to your values and to find the joy in whatever it is that you are doing. If you do that, you might be surprised at the results.
