Have you ever noticed how people put a label on themselves and on others?
A label to give them more confidence I assume? To make them look more important than others?
The problem here is that in today’s day and age, success is determined by your LABEL or the fact that you earn a lot of money. Some of us do not have the urge to be the best this or the best that, yes money makes life comfortable but it is not everything. I am sure you have also found yourself in many a conversation where the first question is, so what do you do for a living? This makes my blood boil. Why? What does that tell you about me and will you put a label on me according to what I tell you?
Yes I like to work, I like my mind to be stimulated and I like being independent but I am by no means defined or labeled by what I do.
If I had to put a label on myself, I would say nurturer, wife, animal lover and eventually mother. Does this make me less successful because I feel that my calling in life is to save animals, have kids and have a happy family? Certainly not. We are all cut from the safe cloth, our perceptions about certain things just differ.
Don’t you ever feel less successful if you do not carry a label, you are by NO means defined by that.
