Amiga, Handle Your Shit
Ready for the Next Level with Xitlalt Herrera
Success is a journey, not a destination.
Nowadays, more than ever in human history, the pressure to become successful is at a maximum high. Every time we open our social media apps, we see apparent successful people trying to teach others how to become successful, creating a sense of inadequacy in us. We often need to remember that the measure of success is not univocal, but it changes and varies because every one of us is different. We shouldn't feel the pressure to bring ourselves or our own business to the next level just because we see other people doing it; We should embrace our own journey. Remember, the key to success is not to arrive there but to be ready for it.
