Why success is not enough for successful people

You may have already achieved some success and wondering why it’s not everything you imagined it would be. That’s what many successful people, business leaders and entrepreneurs have experienced on the journey to success. While success fixates on outcomes, purpose transcends achievements and self-interest, having a greater positive impact in life and business.

Focusing solely on success will never bring you the satisfaction you desire.


“Without a purpose, life is motion without meaning, activity without direction and events without reason. Without a purpose life is trivial, petty, and pointless.”
– Rick Warren

As businesspeople, it’s natural for us to strive for success in our work and that’s a good thing. However, it’s crucial to understand that success alone might not lead to a truly fulfilling life. That’s why it’s necessary to redefine our understanding of success and give it the right place in our lives.


Having a purpose is the first stepping stone into a life that feels fulfilled and that creates well-being for you and the people around you.
