Success Has Its Rewards


Tom Corley boats - crop

Why is pursuing success so important? Because success has its rewards:

  • Happiness – Pursuing and achieving something you are passionate about brings you happiness
  • Increased Wealth – While success is not just about creating wealth, the wealth you do create has a domino affect that impacts almost every aspect of your life.
  • Growth – The pursuit of success expands your knowledge and your skills. It helps you grow into the person you need to be in order for success to happen.
  • New Experiences – The brain likes novelty. Pursuing success introduces you to all sorts of new people, new ideas, new opportunities and new ways of thinking.
  • More Opportunities – Success is like a magnet for opportunities. The more success you realize, the more opportunities present themselves.
  • More Freedom – While there is a cost to pursuing success (hard work/long hours), that initial cost should be viewed as an investment that will pay dividends down the road. Oftentimes this future payout manifests itself in the form of more freedom: more money and more time to spend doing doing what you want to do.
  •  Less Stress – Financial problems create an enormous amount of stress. According to a recent study by the Pew Research Center, 71% of the population in the world is either poor or near poverty. Struggling to pay bills, fund college tuition for your kids or simply survive day to day when you have little to no money creates constant, long-term stress.
  • Peace of Mind – Knowing your financial future is secure gives you peace of mind.
  • Greater Enthusiasm and Motivation – Success fuels your enthusiasm and motivates you like nothing else.
  • Increased Confidence – When you succeed at anything, it grows your confidence. More success translates into more confidence.
  • Ability to Help Others – When you are successful you can use your influence and your money to help causes you believe in. You can improve the lives of others.
  • Increased Intelligence – Pursuing success requires that you gain new knowledge and new skills. This growth increases the number of synapses (brain cells that talk to one another) and also increase the size of axons (component of every brain cell). Neuroscientists have found that the greater the number of synapses one has, the larger your axons and the greater your intelligence.
  • Improved Health – Success reduces many of the stresses ordinary individuals must contend with every day. Poverty or near poverty creates many stresses. Long-term stress increases the production of cortisol, which depresses your immune system making you susceptible to disease and infection.
  • Increased Optimism – Success improves your outlook on life. It gives you the confidence that you can overcome obstacles, suppressing your doubts and fears.
  • Enlightenment – The pursuit of success expands your view of the world and shines a light on your strengths and your weaknesses. It opens your mind to your true potential, which is unlimited.
  • Increased Good Luck – Success is like a magnet for good luck. It draws individuals and opportunities to you. It opens doors that were previously closed to you.
