Success is defined as the accomplishment of an aim or purpose, and for success to be sustainable it must be maintained at a certain level, indefinitely. Financial wealth is the typical indicator of success. Then there’s the opposing perspective that disdains ‘money focus’ in favor of service. The Mindfluence Revolution views success as an essential balance of wealth, contribution, fun and time freedom, along with the health and vitality to truly appreciate them. Similar to baking a cake, if you leave out any of the essential ingredients or if they’re improperly combined, the result just isn’t fully satisfying. What else do we need, beyond financial wealth, to be truly successful and have it be sustainable? Listen in as Dr. Norton and co-host Bruce Hurley explore the most pressing challenge in every business – making success sustainable.
