Your Soul, your Greater Self, whatever name you choose to call it, has very different concepts of success and failure than your Ego.
truth are two of the major driving forces behind the wheel of your Soul,
and as long as you are aligned with those things your Soul sees success
where others may see failure.
Likewise, when you are aligned with your
Ego and doing something for the sake of status or external pressure,
your Soul can feel sad even while the world is applauding your success.
