What are the things that let you know that you’ve made it? Do you define success by the clothes that you wear, the house that you live in, the cars that you drive and the vacations you take? Or is it the power, recognition, and fame that scream success for you? Some may even say a happy and healthy family is true success for them. Depending on who you ask, you’ll get different answers.
Entrepreneur Magazine recently posed that question in a nonscientific Facebook poll to their fans, in which they discovered that respect trumped power and money as the definition of success.
According to the 600 respondents, nearly 52 percent revealed that success is “being respected in business.” Twenty-two percent stated that “being powerful in business” is success, while 12 percent said “becoming a millionaire” and “making my family proud” is when they know they’ve made it.
But, the one thing that all successful people will say is that it took hard work, dedication and the desire in order to make their dreams to come true; and that rewarding feeling that you know you accomplished your goal was the sweetest reward of them all.
Don’t let that rewarding feeling elude you. Everyone can be successful and accomplish their goals when they set their mind to it.
As Andy Albright said in the Millionaire Maker Manual, “It takes WORK to make your DREAMS work.”
So go ahead, set your goals and get to work!
