What Does Real Business Success Look Like? (And Why so Many Get it Wrong)
Are you filling your time beautifully?
The financial rewards that come from having a successful business are important to many business owners. Achieving financial success is usually the primary reason motivating business owners to work hard and take tremendous risks.
But how much money your business makes shouldn’t be the only measure of how successful your business is.
I’ve mentored and trained hundreds of businesses around the world. Every one of them has one thing in common.
They are all at some level trying to create better, happier and less stressful lives for themselves and their families. They all have a shared desire for freedom.
When you break this down to its core; what are we really talking about here?
The answer is time and what we do with it.
When the day comes when we look back at our life; the question I think we will all ask ourselves is:
Did I fill my time beautifully?
Did I make the correct choices to create cherished memories and precious moments? Ones that you know will warm your families’ homes with laughter and keep your families smiling for generations to come. Ones that allow you to rest easy and be at peace.
For me, this is success in life, and I have been fortunate to help many business owners around the world achieve this.
Are you building your business to create a life worth living?
Not only for yourself, but for your loved ones to cherish and enjoy as well.
Me starting out in business in my early twenties, going about building my business the wrong way. Building a business structure that chased financial rewards filled with stress, rather than working towards time and money freedom with peace of mind.
When I first started out in business, I built my business the wrong way. Like many other business owners and young hotshot entrepreneurs of today, I was building a business to make money to be “successful”.
But what did business success mean to me back then?
To get rich so I could buy materialistic things like fancy cars and penthouses. I believed if people saw me driving around in my fancy car, wearing my Rolex watch and jazzy suit, they would say I had made it. That was really important to me in my early twenties.
Did it bring me happiness? NO.
I was stressed, overworked, and killing myself building my business for the wrong outcome – materialistic happiness. I had zero downtime, and it was exhausting keeping this up. I, therefore, had very little peace of mind.
Externally, with its massive growth so quickly, my first business looked like a fabulous success. Internally, I was burning out. I eventually lost the lot.
And what happened. I burnt out, lost the lot and learnt a $12 million lesson about business, life and happiness.
It took me seven years to recover from that failure, but I took those painful lessons and decided that any new business I built and any business owners I coached going forward would be built for the right outcomes.
What does real success in business look like?
The definition of business success means something different for every individual business owner. But I believe they all have one common thread they strive for. Maybe not in the beginning like me, but eventually the realisation comes….
Build a business to give you time & money freedom with peace of mind.
For the last twenty years, I have been scratch building businesses across 3 countries and have helped hundreds of business owners build wealth with this “success” outcome in mind. Build a business to give you time and money freedom with less worry.
What are the outcomes of true business success?
I am able to spend more quality time with friends and family, way more than any other person I know, most of whom are a lot richer than me.
I have enjoyed watching my children grow up. I have never missed any of their birthdays, school plays or any important occasions like my wedding anniversaries or my Gran’s 100th birthday.
And while this happens, my business is designed to keep increasing in value without me being strapped to it.
This, to me, is success and why you should be building your business. This should be your business goal.
This would never have been possible if I continued to build my new businesses the way I built my first one. I love this freedom process and have used it to help hundreds of others just like you achieve their dreams, and I would love to do the same for you.
The starting point is mapping out a practical, step by step strategy that will help you reach your goals of happiness while building a business you love.
“Dr Theva used this exact freedom process. His profits have soared and he now takes every Wednesdays off to spend with his wife. And while he is enjoying this time freedom, he is building a valuable asset for life.”
