So, let me ask you a question why success I mean it for me. I'll even say for us dark horses and driven entrepreneurs. We are at some level driven by a desire to feel important. Now don't get me wrong when I say that I'm not talking about importance in stature fame or anything like that although some of you may be driven by that and it's all. Good. However, the importance that I'm really speaking of is that we wanna feel that our lives have made an impact in a positive way somewhere deepen our core. We WanNa know that the world is just even tiniest bit better because we were in it especially after we're gone so you could say the success could be a way of estimating or grading or evaluating that impact right? So think about it and I'm betting because you're listening to this podcast that you have more you. You want more, you want to more be more do more but for those that are not so driven like you and I write they perhaps they just want to get to a day's worth of work and maybe catch an episode of their favorite program on net flakes while they're eating dinner before they kinda pass out on their couch or armchair whatever it is I sit on right on the other hand right there. Are Those real heroes out there spending almost full twenty, four hours of any given day saving lives in operating rooms in Ers in vehicles with red and blue lights were wearing camouflage pecking automatic weapons often some far off distance locale on this great plant. Heck. They might be here in the United States doing the same thing right? Still others they're they're creating these amazing works of art in various forms they're going to touch the lives and hearts of millions of people. Still others are donating buildings, colleges, and entire hospitals to cities. Here's the thing. No matter where you might fall on that pretty wide arkie is laid out. One thing will forever be true. That do not aspire to success will never get it. Yeah. There is right and thanks for joining us now. See, and here's the cool thing about it. Well, I don't know if it's cool thing here I, think it's Kinda. Cool. He you're GonNa have to be Ray for success when it presents itself. And on top of that, you're going to have to doggedly pursue it with a passion to find that presentation in the first place. Right so now you've got to go after it to get it. You gotta you gotTa Chase it right. You're not gonNA find that girl or guy if you don't chase them down, right you don't look for him. Now here's the thing. Let let's be honest here for cigarettes. Well, let's be honest all the time or The definition of success is very personal to and for each of us however in my half a century plus on this wonderful plan, I have found that most people will include the following in their personal definition of success. Now, one of those things is living your dreams will whatever that means to you to be able to get out here in live your dream whether it be in a mansion in a little cabin in the mountains lakeside you know beat side whatever it is living your dream as usually party definition success living every with passion is another one to be get up it new, put your feet on I'm GonNa take off running because you are that passionate about what's going on in your world in your in that day. having true wealth That's usually one that what I mean by true wealth is knowing you haven't more than you need maybe things you want you don't have yet, but I'm talking about you have everything you need. You still got some leftover right that's I think for me true wealth. Next. Is Learning appreciation and gratitude. Most of the folks that have success real success have learned that appreciation and gratitude, and we've talked about this a number of times next one is Positively influencing the lives of others in some way. So many six real to me really successful people that one's at their core next one is true happiness right? What a Skinny. Whatever that means to you having that true happiness for that's having that right person in your in your life being able to positively influence. Maybe it's a combination of all these ones we've mentioned already, and then lastly having loved ones with whom you share all this with right. You can have all these great things, but he's got no one share it with isn't it kind of empty, right? Now for me. If you're if you're all about the Almighty dollar and that's your baseline for business for success not like I said, right the definite success is personal each and every one of us, and if that's your baseline for success that's cool. I got nothing against You no judgment zone here on that one right but no matter what your definition of success is if you pursue it with a passion and determination, you will ultimately get what it is. You want there it is however you that was coming in you however if your pursuit is All about that Almighty dollar, you most likely will find get what you want. But what you will find is when you get all those dollars is they're still so much missing from your life. A lot of those key items I just mentioned you know the living with passion living your dream and having the true wealth and you know appreciation grant all those things especially if have known to share it with so you know don't make all about it but hey, if you do, that's cool too. That's it's your world right limit your way. Now. As they say today Yep today's the first day of the rest of your life.
