Entrepreneurship and Success are driving factors in today’s society. Millions are spent every year, on books and courses on how to start a business, how to be successful, and how to make a million dollars.
Many live and breathe on a quest for what society determines as success.
How do we get this “success”?
A single goal is chose, and then strived for day and night. We read about the great ones…
Bill Gates* would focus on only one thing with the utmost discipline.
Warren Buffet* ruled out paying attention to anything but his business so that he could focus solely on his passion.
And so we set out in life and strive for that one goal. That goal of “success”.
But what is success?
Money? Power? Sweet car? A big house.
Maybe for some.
But there are those that find success to be something different.
SUCCESS: A mother’s goal for her children to be happy and healthy.
SUCCESS: A man’s goal for his career to have forward momentum.
SUCCESS: An athlete’s dream to go to the olympics.
All sounds great, right? Good people striving for their version of success.
Here is the problem with Success today.
The young woman determined to succeed at her firm, working 18 hour days, trying to get ahead. She works late, comes in early and finds her work spills over into her weekends too, but she feels this is what it takes to succeed.
All at the sake of her relationships. She doesn’t have time to spend time with her family and her friends are now nonexistent. She doesn’t realize that her success would be greater and more secure with a social structure to lean on.
The man that wants so badly to make his first million, to show everyone that he could do it. He works whenever he needs to, travel when he needs to, and burns the midnight oil more nights than not working to perfect his skill.
All at the sake of his health. He is going so often his sleep suffers, there is little time to exercise and he eats what he can on the run. He doesn’t realize that neglecting his health can and will cut his life short.
The yoga teacher that is devoted to her health and the health of others. She has a tribe of followers that adores all she does. She volunteers, gives of herself, but has no plans but to help those that need it and to be as healthy as possible.
All at the sake of her money, for she makes little and doesn’t realize that money is opportunity to do more and people would happily pay for her help.
The mom that lives for her family. She runs her household like a business; breakfast made, kids to school, husband off to work, house is spotless, laundry done, kids events and schedules on point, dinner made, and the list goes on. But what happens when her kids go off on their own, or her husband moves on.
She took care of her family all at the sake of her career, education and hobbies. She didn’t think of a life other than her family and now she feels empty and unsure of her direction in life.
