I am amazed at how many people define success as making (or having) a lot of money. It is very strange, because many of the people who think this way are agitated, stressed and, frankly, pretty miserable.
I decided I would rather starve, live on the edges of nowhere, than do anything at all; than become anything labeled. – Charles Bukowski
The definition of success is not a fixed one. It changes according to each person’s perspective. It is up to each person to define the concept of success. Whatever your idea of success, it is not possible to achieve it without hard work.
On the one hand, people today dream of being able to work from home. The comfort of working from home is an advantage, since it represents saving time and, consequently, improving the quality of your life.
On the other hand, we have people who believe that success has more to do with the possibility of working from anywhere in the World. This kind of work has gained more and more popularity, with the emergence of the digital nomads.
The definition of success as freedom to make your own schedule is very present in today’s World. Professionals increasingly want to exercise control over their own productivity, and have a say in when, how, and where to carry out their activities.
The most traditional definition of what success is involves spending quality time with family. Having time to see the children grow, and taking care of the important people in your life is one of the basic objective of most entrepreneurs.
For these professionals, success is not merely connected to financial gains. Having time for your loved ones is more important than making a lot of money.
Entrepreneurs do not simply want to sell products, they want to have a positive impact on the market and develop a product or service with really adds value to the consumer.
Achieving success, then, may mean to create something that is truly useful and innovative, which solves real problems people have, and also creates social engagement.
What is your gift. It is the thing that you do the absolute best, with the least amount of effort.
The World can be a very pleasant place for everybody, as long as people behave in a way to have a positive impact on others. The influence we have on the World can lead to positive or negative results.
Maybe, the success you seek is found in the ability to add, to generate value, and having a positive influence in the World around you.
