success in business vs success in life

People measure success in many different ways and on many different levels. When setting goals in life or business, its important that we identify what success means to us personally, so that when we succeed we will know it.

How do you measure success in business
For example, most people measure success in business according to their income; however this may not be an accurate assessment. If your business efforts provide a substantial monetary reward but you dont enjoy what you do, can this really be called success?
If on the other hand, we were measuring financial success then income would be an accurate indicator. Knowing what you expect from your business in advance gives you a way to measure success and to gauge your progress.
For you, being successful in business may include not only enjoying what you do but also creating value for others. So in addition to being profitable and enjoyable, for you to accurately measure success, you would also need a way to gauge whether or not you are actually creating value for other people.

How do you measure success in life

When we set goals in any area of our life, we need to determine beforehand what our intended results are and how we will recognize it when we get there. Establishing ahead of time what success looks like and feels also gives us the opportunity to program our nervous system with the exact feelings that success will bring.
Having a way to measure success and keep track of our progress helps you to stay motivated and focused. When you know where you are going and how much progress you have made it creates anticipation and excitement. This positive energy helps you to take consistent action in the direction of our goals which multiplies your results. One feeds the other.
