Success is rather subjective. In our world today, a lot of people fall into the trap of thinking success is all about money.
I have 2 mentors. Both of them could be considered highly successful.
One of those mentors is making a million dollars a month. Yet he has health conditions and major concerns.
He may be successful with income but is he really successful with life?
One of the traits of highly successful people is that we work extremely hard. We also work extremely smart.
You mentioned your two mentors view success differently. How does that play into your view of success?
