Price of success which you may not know…

Price of success which you may not know…

And no one may ever tell you!


Everyone thought I was living the dream.

On the outside looking in, I had it all.

Made more income than all of my peers.


What they didn’t know…

I was working 18 hour days and didn’t have any time for family.

I couldn’t meet friends for weeks.

My only friend was my laptop and my excel sheets.

One day, while working, a memory struck me out of nowhere.

I remembered a time I was picturing myself big.

But I asked myself, “Is it worth it?”

Is the reward worth it at all?

So I questioned myself, “Is this the life I want – Without enjoying time with my family, my daughters, and friends?”

I decided to change my path, reduce my work rate, and started to invest time with family and friends.

When I was chasing professional success, no one told me:-

1) Most people want to rush to get to the top. But nobody tells you that it gets extremely lonely at the top!

2) The best bits are along the path. As they say, “don’t forget to stop and smell the roses on your way”

I still work 18 hours and on weekends, but only when the work demands.

When was the last time you asked your self “Is it worth it?”

Trust me, If it’s not…

Change paths!
