My Idea of “Enough”

Happy Satuday, babes!!!

I hope you’re having a fantastic week, and an even better weekend ahead!

I have a question for you. Is there a perfect age to own a business?

I think about this question a lot, mostly because it’s unavoidable to think about it. For the most part, we go through life thinking that success is achieved when your ideal lifestyle is met. What I never questioned, however, is how much money do we really need to bring us success and happiness?

Ask yourself: if you had all the money in the world, what would you do with it? What would make you happy?

Some people would travel all over. Others would buy three houses across the globe. Or maybe you would choose to fulfill a dream venture, give it all to charity, the list goes on and on.

When I asked myself this question and really thought hard about what would make me happy, it was this: (1) hire employees for my company with the hopes of giving them a great lifestyle doing something they loved, while also freeing up some of my time to spend with family; (2) travel more; and (3) give to charity much more than I’m able to now.

That’s it.

My version of pure happiness is family, growing a company, travel and helping others in whatever way I can. That is my idea of “enough.”

And the thing is, your “enough” will probably be very different from my “enough.” As it should be.

These are your dreams we’re talking about, and everyone’s version of success and happiness is likely to be different. The age old assumption that “making as much money in this lifetime as possible is the only path to success” just doesn’t bring true anymore. There are an infinite amount of paths to success and an infinite amount of versions of success.

To determine your version of success and what your “enough” is, force yourself to really think about what would make you happy, if money were no object.

What kind of lifestyle would you live? Who would you be spending time with? Write these things down and recognize that your version of “enough” is totally attainable if you’re willing to work for it. And maybe, you’re perfectly happy with how your lifestyle currently is, and you wouldn’t change a thing.

If that’s the case…perhaps you’ve already reached your “enough.” Sometimes the simplest dreams are the most attractive. XOXO ^^
