What I Wish I Knew About Success | A Monk’s Perspective


Share post:

Growing up, I was told how to live. Specially, how to be successful. Success showed up in the form of status, money, career, partner, children, house, etc. And coming to the United States as an immigrant, I quickly subscribed to these goals and standards. But many years later, my life took a completely different turn and I wanted to take this moment to reflect back on this concept of success. I wanted to pull out the wisdom and share it in hopes that it helps someone along their own journey. I hope this is helpful. Enjoy! #buddhism #monks #mentalhealth
