“If you think you’re successful now, you’re not” said the speaker.
I was invited to a seminar put on by the Ottawa Executive MBA program for the winners of the 40 under 40 business awards.
When I heard those words I stopped listening. I sat in my chair thinking about that for the rest of the talk.
How could someone make a statement like that without first defining success.
Success means different things for different people. Some entrepreneurs crave the adrenaline of the hustle, grinding it out to one day buy a football team.
That’s not success to me. To me it’s like hiking.
When I go hiking, the goal isn’t to race to the top and go home. If I do that i’ll miss all the sights and sounds. The goal of hiking is to enjoy the journey along the way and to do it as often as I can.
