People matter. Chris Peterson, one of the founding fathers of positive psychology, said that positive psychology could be summed up in 3 words: “other people matter.” Not new gadgets, or the latest and greatest car, or the biggest home, or your investments. While many others in the self-help and business field will try to tell you that these things should be your only focuses, this advice just isn’t correct. I know this is a top focus that many entrepreneurs focus on because a lot of business moguls that I follow on Instagram only share photos of stacks of money, new Ferraris, Rolexes, and penthouse suites; not people. Is this what the meaning of life has come to? I sure hope not.
On the other hand, please never feel bad for building wealth. Building wealth can be fun, and having fun is amazing, but I am more talking about wealth in that it should never be your sole focus. Building a bigger business is only worth it if you are impacting people in better ways.Building a bigger business is only worth it if you are impacting people in better ways. Click To Tweet
