On My Mind / Essays On Success

Always more to learn

Success comes in many different packages, as does the power that success often brings -- it has different connotations to different people. For me, success is the result of my ability to use my own insight and talent to forge new ground as an entrepreneur, while making strides toward my personal and business goals.

I love the challenge of being a leader, with its risks and rewards, and I thrive in the environment of hard work. Yet, I feel I am grounded in reality enough to know that I could not have tripled the size of my business and grown its revenues without the diligent efforts of those who also come to work 24/7 at Reston Limousine.

Ultimately, I measure success as an business leader by taking the time to remember those around us who may not be as fortunate, who may need a hand up the business ladder or a mentor who perhaps has already learned insight and vision from having traveled the pathway before.

I believe that there will always be more to learn, achieve, and experience as an entrepreneur. Success comes to those who take to the journey in search of the best pathway -- not to those who wait to see which route others will choose.
