How do you measure your progress?
How do you know you’re on the path to success?
And is success even important at all?
Isn’t it equally important to rise and fall?
You don’t want to just exist, you want to
Do better in your life, that much is true
You fear stagnation, you want to be
On a constant path of self-discovery
You try your best to learn things new
You continue to expand your skill-set too
Yet no discernible results you can see
You are still where you used to be
Everyone you meet seems to have gone further ahead
You try to evaluate why you’ve not, with a sense of dread
You look for encouragement, validation or applause
Effort that is invisible seems to be for a lost cause..
You have been working diligently every day
You have not slacked in any way
Maybe what you are doing is enough
To show up and work every day is tough
Success is not always a big leap
Progress is not always a slope steep
Give yourself more credit for what you do
Trust where your journey is taking you..
