Luxury and Wealth
Luxury and Wealth
What comes to mind when you think about luxury and wealth? Is it money… stacks upon stacks of $100 bills lined up on a table and stacked into a suitcase? Is it gold bullion bars sparkling under your watchful gaze? Or maybe its luxury yachts, lamborghinis and ferraris? If you lived a life full of luxury and wealth what would it entail?
As a young entrepreneur, it’s important that you learn to visualize your life and think through what your ideal life would look life if you have everything you ever wanted or would ever need? If you experienced all of the success in the world, and money was no object, what kind of life would you live? Would it be one continuous party, or would it be a life of purpose, mission, and impact? Perhaps it would be a blend of both.
It’s important to learn that before you ever experience success as a young entrepreneur, you want to identify just what exactly success is to you. If you don’t take the time to define success before you begin your journey, chances are someone else will end up defining it for you and you’ll come to the end of your road only to find yourself lost and adrift at sea in someone else’s daydream.
Indeed, luxury and wealth are enticing. The thought of having limitless wealth and access to all of the luxury you could imagine can be a strong pull to motivate you to work and find success, but far more important is to understand your why in life. Simon Sinek wrote a great book, “Start With Why” that I highly recommend you check out and read.
If you can clearly define your goals, your ideals, your passions, and your mission, and you set out as a young entrepreneur to achieve these things, you’ll have a clearly defined path to take you exactly where you want in life. And if you ever get swept up in the luxury and wealth of it all along the way, you’ll remember just where it is you’re trying to go and what you’re trying to accomplish, and you’ll have a roadmap back to your dreams.
