money or moving up the corporate ladder. More and more, its becoming clearer that one of the biggest
indicators of success is purpose.
purpose? That is why we are looking at these 5 simple ways.
1. Find your purpose:
What are you passionate about that could also benefit others? You are expected to know know your field very well and be passionate about it. Also recognise that something must be
done to make it sustainable for future generations. The
desire to do something on purpose must start from within.
2. Lead a balanced life:
If you don’t have purpose in your life, you won’t have purpose in your
business. You may be working hard, but much more also, you must focus on yourself with meditation and good record keeping. Keep a good tab on yourself. You either strike a balance or you strike out.
3.Step up to the challenge:
Don’t just leave your passion to be realised and acted upon by someone else –
step up to the challenge. You can’t change the world by yourself ! It’s going to be how many people you can convince to do business with you but it does take somebody to start.
4. Give back:
Self-fulfillment is one thing,
but there’s much greater satisfaction to be gained from doing something that
benefits your community. Don’t just establish the
structure to sustain your business but much more, challenge the way people
think about their future, and collectively, our future. Do not strive to build and empire all by yourself, build people, invest in them and you will be amazed those people will come round to form the empire of your dream.
5. Believe in others:
If you engage with others and allow them to participate, you
will see humankind’s potential for greatness. It will amaze you that when you talk to people about your project, most response you get will be “how can I help?” You will find more fulfillment when your success is not built around only you.
