Am I making progress?

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..
