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.
