What Makes a Business a Success?

Success: ‘The accomplishment of an aim or purpose’

Success is an interesting and popular subject, but what does it actually mean? Well in truth there is no right or wrong answer as it is completely vague and subjective. People and companies define it in different ways. So how do we define success? How do you define it? How do a few of the most successful people in history define success? For a subject that asks so many questions few are actually answered.

Successful people in history define it in similar but noticeably different ways. Everyone has different views on success and that is because we are all unique. No one person is more unique than another person, no one is ‘unique-er’ or the ‘unique-est’ because those words don’t exist, there is one of you and there will only ever be one of you. Everyone’s mind works differently which means everyone has different views and reactions to their own definition of success.

Winston Churchill defined it as; ‘going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm’. This is an interesting point of view which includes “failing” in his definition.  It also shows that you don’t need an end goal, it is all about yourself and who you are as a person which counts as a success. This of course relates to the famous saying; ‘success is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration’ meaning that it is mostly about hard work. The harder you work the more successful you will become.

Now that we have discussed it in ourselves how do we define it in business?

Monetary? Brand recognition? Integrity and honesty of a company?

All of the above?

Again it is completely individual and subjective to the company. Here at Sharon Lee, customer relationships and returning customers are more important to us and a key to our success.
