Thoughts on "success"

Every step is important. - Oprah
You cannot do great things, only small things with great love. - Mother Teresa

I think to have a big plan for "success" distracts you from the now, and you get caught in planning and dreaming.
Motivation comes from the heart, something you can do now, something that you love.

Having an ego about something, "my impressive goal", kind of covers the heart, and reduces motivation. I think "big goals" are only motivational when you're thinking about them.

I think your "purpose" (if you can think about in a non-"ego" way) is the thing you can't not do. The thing you were kind of "born to do", and would if there was no fear of running out of money, or losing friends, or making uncorrectible mistakes.

You're at peace, with enough cash and with the people you love. What do you want to do now?
