- Financial success isn't always fulfilling
- Maintain a strong connection to what's important
- A fulfilled life will make you better at business
The importance of living life to the fullest is a business person to me is the most important thing. It's too many times people think it's all about just making money. It's not about making money. It's enjoying your life becoming something. You get in business to make money, that's a part of it but you gotta have that passion. Too many times I think people think I'm gonna make a lot of money, I'm gonna be on the beach in Malibu, I'm gonna be happy. You're not gonna be happy. You're gonna be happy when you have people around you who enjoy seeing you and building your relationships with your family and your kids.
When you're in business and you're making money, you still gotta stay connected to what's important. And, it really is, anything happens that to anybody that's gonna change everything about your life. So, you gotta make sure as a business person that you also forget that you're living to enjoy this life.
The last point as making your life not just about money is gonna make you a better business person. Nobody wants to meet somebody who's so transparent who's selling them all the time. To anybody I think it's a big turn off if the goal in your life is just to make money. It would be a complete turn off just to even yourself. So, at one point you'll become a better business person if you realize it's not just all about making money.
I think at the end of the day we all wake up, we're all excited to do business, we're all excited to make money but that's not what gonna -- when you're sitting there about to die you're not gonna look back on your life gonna have a lot of money. It's gonna be about your relationships, how you enjoyed this life so when you get in and you try to make money as a business person you also gotta live your life. Enjoy it and do it for the right reasons because we're here for a blink and we're gone.
