A business or work success will strengthen your self-esteem.
It's easy to be afraid of the dark; the unknown. However, it's a different problem when people are afraid of the light; the truth. If you're closing your eyes so that you don't have to see the truth, then you're only harming yourself in the long run. Open your eyes, see the truth, accept it, and begin your powerful journey away from fear so that you can move towards the rich possibilities of the future.
Don't become a slave to the idea that there is one perfect job that will make you happy. Some work will be more suitable than others, but the dream of finding a perfect job is just an illusion. Don't chase what isn't real. Find satisfaction, not perfection.
