“Too many people measure how successful they are by how much money they make or the people that they associate with. In my opinion, true success should be measured by how happy you are.” – Richard Branson
Success is measured in lots of different ways, and if you’re like the rest of us, you may be struggling to figure out if you’re doing okay. According to television, movies and the media, success is often measured in the amount of money you have, your job titles, whether or not you have a family – those kinds of things.
Author Travis Bradberry states, “Too many people measure how successful they are by how much money they make or the people that they associate with. In my opinion, true success should be measured by how happy you are.”
Material realities can be a good measure of success, but they’re not the only things that count. When it comes to measuring success, there’s so much more to consider. If you’re wondering where you measure up, you may be doing better than you think.
