“Success, for me, has always been in providing a great quality of life for my family, for those who work for me, and to my community.”
“The purpose of our lives is to contribute our unique, God-given gifts to have an extraordinary positive impact on the lives of others and the world.”
“To find and fully live your purpose in life, and to leave an enduring legacy of having made a difference in the world.”
“I define success as living my true purpose and having a positive impact on the lives of people by uplifting them and inspiring them to think and act in ways that they may not have considered before.”
“My definition of success is knowing that what you are doing is helping you and others lead a better, happier, healthier life.”
Society has always defined success one way, and a lot of people tie that definition to having money. But, think about it; there are so many people in the world who have tons of money and are just miserable. Over the years, I’ve been through so many trials, personally and professionally, and I’ve learned so much. I left a corporate job (and good money) to follow my passion of being an entrepreneur, first with a retail store, and then with my second business in marketing and brand strategy.
When I worked in corporate, I always used to be chasing and trying to achieve more. I was chasing after goals, and chasing after what I thought was “success.”
Follow our passion
When I became an entrepreneur, things changed. I went through a transformation of completely redefining what success means to me, based on what I’ve been through in starting a business, as well as things that have happened in my personal life. Success to me now… especially now that we’re ready to become grandparents … has nothing to do with money. It has more to do with how I want to feel each and everyday. What my perfect day would look like, what I would do, where I would go, who I would work with. Feeling inner peace, and being totally and completely authentically me, and loving myself.Success is definitely not feeling that constant craziness and not feeling that chaos that runs through my head, and notthat swirl that happens when you get on everybody else’s agenda and you’re not on your own. No thank you!
