What does it mean to be successful?

Successful: – “Accomplishing an aim or purpose.” – “Having achieved popularity, profit, or distinction.”

Becoming a successful Entrepreneur can have many different meanings, depending on who you ask. For some it may be making your first million, for others it may be becoming well known. For me it means being able to help those around me and being happy with what I do everyday. If I wake up every morning not excited to go to work, then I am not being successful. Becoming successful doesn’t have to mean doing something until you have enough money to do whatever you want. It can have a variety of meanings. Here are 5 meanings we think will help you define what being successful means to you.

  1. Creating something awesome from nothing.

Creating a business from nothing into an empire is an awesome thing and can be next to impossible. When your business starts running like a well-oiled machine you know that you have made it in the business world.


  1. Being able to help those in need around you and around the world.

Having the ability to help people back up on their feet that truly deserve it is an awesome thing. This can be with people around you such as family and friends or it can be people around the globe that simply aren’t given a chance to become successful in life.


  1. Being excited every morning you wake up.

What if every morning you woke up with a since of purpose and the feeling of happiness that you have the rest of the day to do what you want to do. This to me is the number one definition of success. Sure, everyone will always have those bad days but, becoming that person that doesn’t have a huge amount of wait on their shoulders  and can be the best thing to happen to you. Not only will you feel better about yourself but, being able to help others becomes much easier.


  1. Hitting an income bench mark.

This is what is most commonly associated with a successful entrepreneur. Surpassing a certain amount of income can indicate that someone is successful. But why is becoming rich always associated with being successful? When someone has made a substantial amount of money from their business, one can assume that their business is successful and therefore they are successful themselves.


  1. Having the ability to make your own schedule.

This is the biggest reason to become an entrepreneur. Being able to do everything on your terms including your schedule is a huge step in becoming a successful entrepreneur. You know you have made it when you are able to call all the shots in your life.
