How To Find Happiness And Achieve Success In Business

You aren’t going to find happiness by taking a walk. But you aren’t going to succeed either if you never even know what’s on the other side of the door. By starting with the next step, you’ll take the first steps towards your goal.

We all start somewhere: with your current job, the people you work with in your office and the things you’re experiencing in your everyday life. If you’re doing your best to succeed and find happiness, however, you’re likely to need a little more help than you may at first realize. In addition to building your own confidence in your own mind and in your work ethic (which you should already be working on), there are still things you can do to make sure you don’t get lost entirely in all the noise and distraction that happens when you’re working from home. What you should actually be looking at, though, are the steps involved in developing a system for being a business owner.

I’m a little biased – since I’m also a professional blogger and live in the great city of Seattle, this isn’t my full-time job. But I’ve spent a fair amount of time here on this site as you might imagine – reading, writing and answering questions – and I’ve felt that much of the information I’ve put out there has really helped people. To me, the one thing any business owner can do well is provide an honest and open marketplace. When something goes wrong, a business owner has to have a good sense of what is going on – not just know that their systems are working properly, but also know that things are falling apart for a reason. I don’t care about people believing their company is flawless – just as long as it’s honest and authentic. To that end, I’m trying to do two things with this essay: one, I want to highlight how companies should run from the first second you buy your product or service from them. If done correctly, this approach won’t just help you manage your time a little better, it will also help you focus a little better on what matters most in life. Two, though, I really want to bring on board some ideas that work both from this side and the others. I hope you find some of what I feel are powerful, practical and, well – inspiring .  

To that end, here’s what I want you to consider: the real question you ought to be asking is how you go about finding an organization that can help you create value in your life. I know these days many business owners want to be the “go-to” resource for everything they need to succeed, but a good relationship with an organization is also far more valuable in every way: not just in the sense of helping you succeed, but in having your back when your business does struggle. There are times when you need someone who understands both the business and the problems you’re having, someone who can point you to the information you need to succeed. Most business owners don’t want to be that guy, and neither do I. I don’t want to be the guy who only knows how to help me succeed as a person. I want to be one who helps any business owner succeed. That’s why I’m putting together this piece, in hopes that maybe some people who read it will find and join with some organizations in their local area that can help solve their problems with a little bit of focus and direction.

I think you know where I’m going with this. There’s a lot to think about when it comes to finding your right company, but I know one thing that we all can agree on: we want to feel like we’re working in and with a really good business that is providing value to a wide variety of people. Unfortunately, that can sometimes come at significant personal cost. Not because each organization we bring onboard will hurt and even kill a few innocent humans, but because the way an organization can function is a reflection of the people running it and the people you work for. That means you’ll have to be willing to invest yourself a lot.

You know what else I’m concerned about? How I feel.
