Our Western society values success based on money, popularity, the amount of hours worked per week, 'being busy'. It's up to you to define success and victory for yourself. When we're aiming at something, we tend to focus on the achievement of the whole ascend, if we use the metaphor of the mountain. While, it's sure is motivating and a source of pride, we sometimes forget, or at least I do, to look and really consider the small milestones, little victories, and daily achievements paving the way to that climatic success. The more we pay attention to them, the more we notice that they structure and rythm our daily lives.
