I’m Rich and I welcome you on my personal space on the Internet. I created this blog with a single purpose – to inspire you to take charge of your money and help you become a financially successful and independent person.
Success for many entrepreneurs is the overriding goal and being a successful entrepreneur comes with, naturally, numerous perks. When we define success by our material belongings we intend to lose sight of what success really means. If you’re looking to set up a business or you’re chasing the dollar consider these thoughts to help you define the true meaning of success.
Use Your Material Goods for a Better Purpose Than Just “Possessing Them”
Owning something is a status symbol. If we’ve been hankering for a boat our entire lives and it’s finally come to the point where we are so successful that we’ve got to find the right way to drive a boat so we can flaunt our wealth to passers-by, are we truly making the most of our financial wealth? Material goods could be representative of something that we’ve wanted for so long. But the trick is to use these material goods, not for the sake of having them but to benefit you. Owning a boat can be a status symbol but after a while, that idea of having things loses all meaning. Instead, you can use that boat as a way to recuperate when running a business becomes too stressful. You can pull up anchor and go somewhere far away and start to recuperate. There’s nothing wrong with material possessions but after a while, they become “stuff.”
It’s Time to Give
Chasing financial rewards is a Pyrrhic victory after a while. When we finally earn a decent wage, if we think this is the true meaning of success we’ll soon find out that fulfillment doesn’t follow. Instead, learning to contribute is the key to feeling fulfilled. By using your fortune for the benefit of others you will become happy as a result. This is the definition of true wealth. When you’ve got to the point that you are a successful entrepreneur and you are chasing money for the sake of it, what else is there to your life? Learning to give back is about contributing to society but it’s also the key to truly making an impact with your earnings.
Using Your Success to Grow in Yourself
Look at any self-made billionaire, they have understood what it takes to come from nothing and build themselves from the ground up. In order to become more satisfied with our abilities, we have to feel the desire to progress. Some people invest more in their business so they can benefit the planet or give back but when you have success and financial rewards using it to develop your own skills and perception of the world is an excellent use of the money. Many people do not have the opportunity to do so because of their limited finances. For you to have a pile of cash and not use it to develop yourself means you will end up very bored.
Many entrepreneurs out there are fulfilled by the journey because they haven’t been able to achieve what they want from the business. This gives them that focus. When you become successful and have achieved your goals, what else is there? That is when it’s time to start reaching for new goals and not just sit back feeling content with your success.
