So, we have reached the end of the A to Z of Successful Business Owners and Leaders! Congratulations! You have reached your zenith!
This final thought is all about “Z is for Zenith” and by now, you will have achieved your big goal and made it to the top! Your self-belief, commitment, determination, knowing your ‘why’, planning, support, and taking action have all contributed to your success.
It’s common at this point to ask, what now?
It’s true, reaching a milestone is not the end. There will be time to start the process all over again – dream new dreams, set new goals, take more action, get results, and repeat.
But, for now, it’s time to celebrate.
Take a breath.
Smell the roses.
Pop a cork.
Celebrate the victory and reflect on the effort it took to get there.
“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” Zig Ziglar
Everyone wants to experience success in life – personally, professionally, physically, financially, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually.
But what is it about success that we desire?
What’s the real payoff? Money? Recognition? Title? Status? Material rewards? The tangible payoffs certainly play a role in our gratification. But there is more to success than acquiring a trinket, status, or applause for our efforts.
Regardless of your definition of success, at the end of your efforts, you are changed. You have fresh new perspectives, new knowledge and new experiences.
You’ve acquired new skills, understanding and insight into yourself, others, and the world around you.
Success brings with it a sense of renewal and transformation.
You feel a sense of pride, fulfilment, invigoration, exhilaration, and passion.
Creating value where there was none is invigorating and leaves us with a feeling of contentment and peace.
No matter what dreams you have, what goals you set for yourself, the methods you choose to realise them or the tangible results that show up, the feelings that come from working towards and reaching our dreams are always worth pursuing.
When it comes to pursuing our passions and striving to realise our dreams, perhaps it’s best we leave the last word to someone who knows a thing or two about dreams:
“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” Walt Disney
