What is Success?

Entrepreneurs start businesses with a worthy goal to be successful. However, how do they define success?

For many it is defined in terms of money or the ability to acquire material things. For others it is to be the biggest or best or change the world. A few define success as being famous. Some have noble objectives in terms of helping people, enhancing lives, creating jobs, or eradicating diseases.

No matter of how they define it, Entrepreneurial success is short-lived if it is not associated with happiness. Even if you achieve all the other objectives, if you are unhappy then success does not mean much.

Ensure your happiness to enjoy success. Define your success in terms of being happy for the long term!

Defining Success

When Entrepreneurs start and build businesses, their definition of success is most often that of  “making lots of money.” When they reach their desired level of this definition of success, then what? What about the process of reaching there?

Success is not only about making money or attaining wealth. Long term success should be judged by the degree to which you are enjoying health, love of family,  friendships, balance in life, and internal peace.

Evaluate your self-improvement, the number of people you have mentored, the lives in which you have made a difference, and the communities that you have benefitted to gauge your true level of success.

Success should not be achieved at the expense of happiness.
