Success And Money What Is The Difference

Everyone wants to succeed and have money maybe you don’t but I do.  Not only do I want to Succeed but I want to have money as well, so today I decided to find out about Success and Money what is the difference?

What Is The definition Of Success?

Many confuse success to having money that’s when they think they have succeeded right? Wrong I looked at the definition of success and this is what came out of google search, Success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose.

Let’s look at these two words aim and purpose. And I have written an article on the 7 Tips to Success click here! To read.

Aim for example can be losing weight,  I am aiming to lose weight in a month so I set a goal and when I managed to lose my weight in that time frame I have succeeded.

And what about purpose for me I would choose purpose as the reason for which something is done, created or for which something exists.

So this could be a business or your passion which could lead you to understand your existence.

Now that we understand success as being an aim or a purpose let’s now understand the definition of Money.

What is the Definition Of Money?

I also looked up what money really is and this is what came up from Google, the definition of money is a current medium of exchange in form of coins and banknotes.

So you see this is talking about a medium of exchange in order to have something for example if you want to buy a dress you will need money as a form of exchange in order to have it.

Now you see though success and money are used simultaneously they are two different things but are both important for you to pursue.

If  You aim at anything it will give you  purpose which will then make you succeed  and when success comes it can help you find ways to turn that into monetary gain which in turn helps you to use money as medium of exchange for anything you need in this world.

But for my long term goals’ I had peace and I knew the time frame I set for myself was actually achievable, so was my instincts right Oh Yes, and this has nothing to do with our belief system but just being realistic, I know about belief systems coming from Africa were you find so many limiting beliefs.
