  1. While money and income is important for survival, as I age, I discover that there are many other measures of success. The children, grandchildren and love in life are huge measures of success. As a book author, I count them as success. Yes, I make royalties from them, but I measure the success not from the royalties, but from the comments I get from people who have read my books.

    Thanks for reminding us that there is more to life than just money.

    • Money is very important. We need it to live. But relationships, good health, love and happiness are also important.

  2. Like Cliff just said, I couldn’t believe my eyes or thoughts for a moment either. We have become so adapted to our incomes being a direct reflection of ourselves, that we lose touch sometimes with all the other great things in life that are not about money. This post makes me recall when my oldest son (now 31) was a little guy. I bought him this really neat trike and I think he had more fun playing with the box than the actual toy. We need to let go of thinking money is everything, because when we do, success will be much easier to achieve.

    Thanks Chuck!

  3. I have to admit this is indeed controversial. My first reaction was,”… what are you saying!? It mustn’t be true!” We are living in a capitalistic society, and it is hard to imagine how money is not a perfect motivation towards any perceived goal. America is business, and business is America. That is why it has been christened the “Land of Opportunities”. Upon more reading I have been able to adjust my myopic focus to the bigger truths behind the wordings.
    Inspiration to people is a key determiner of success. Many high profile wall street and silicon valley billionaires are resorting to philanthropic agendas solely to be happy. That should tell you a lot about the place of inspiration in a business. Apart from inspiring folk, building them and skill development should be a key determiner of the impact you have had in their lives. MLM products are mainly self-development, supplemental health and alternative good products. That is where Impact come in. After changing the whole world, it is also good to change oneself. The change in you is probably one of the most permanent watermarks business will have on you. I believe this post is on-point.
    I don’t know what rules you have set on re-blogging it (by reference) from my blog when it’s up and running in a few months’ time. Always grateful!
