Real Meaning of SUCCESS

shutterstock_475616941

Success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. It means that you have achieved a goal or a vision. This is just one of the many definitions of success. What about you? What is success to you? Have you made a comparison of yourself with your idea of success?

We have to stop comparing ourselves with others, especially with all the social media wherein we see people going in and out of towns, taking exotic trips, etc. You don’t know how they’re paying for that; you don’t know where they’re staying; you don’t know anything about them and their actual way of life. But you are binding yourself up because you feel as though you are “not where someone else is”.

So define success or redefine what truly success is for you. We’re here to constantly let you know what success truly is. Success is about how you’re feeling about yourself, how your relationship is with your spouse, how your relationship is with your children, and your relationship spiritually with God. That is where true success lies; not in your bank account, not in how many zeroes are in your cheque, not about what car you drive or house you own.

Those are material things that you end up with after you go through a process, but the process itself is what real, true success is.

In short, success is not about material things; it’s not a thing that the world can give. It is only given by the Lord. That’s why you have your family, your peace and your relationship with God. That’s the true meaning of success. You can have it even without money.

6 Pitfalls of Entrepreneurship

Starting a business is not easy, it’s tricky and difficult. You need to know every aspect; you should know what to avoid and what are worthy of the risk. A lot of you may be going through pitfalls and are not sure why.

Here are the six (6) Pitfalls of Entrepreneurship that will help and guide you in your business growth.

1. You don’t have a business plan laid out for yourself. You’re not creating that road map that’s going to cover all your business needs, or you’re not updating your business plan with any new market trend changes.

2. Legalities. You’re not forming your business properly. If you are an LLC (Limited Liability Company) or maybe you have to switch to EST Corp, you’re not doing that in the proper way and you’re losing out on tax benefits because of that. Or maybe you’re doing your business as a DBA, there are so many liabilities in that and you need to check them.

3. Your contracts aren’t in order; you don’t have your marketing in order; you are working with people that you don’t have business working with; you’re making assumptions on the industry that you have not tested and you don’t have a credible source.

4. You don’t have your accounting together. You haven’t gotten your Quickbooks or whatever accounting method connected to your payment method together. You’re not keeping financial track. You’re also co-mingling funds (ex. you’re getting your nails and your hair done off the business money).

5. You are not adapting to what the market is doing. You’re not making those quick decisions to guide you to that next level.

6. You’re insecure. You’re in fear and you have a lot of doubts on what you are doing. You’re not preparing yourself in the proper manner so that you can have the confidence to run with the dream that has been provided for you.
Always remember you are the one responsible for your own success.
