We live in a world obsessed with more. More money, more clients, more people on your list. You hear coaches inviting you to make 10k months, 20k months, 6 figures months… it goes on and on. But what about enough?
For me, the constant talk of more money, and faster bigger sales has always felt empty. The truth is I’m not looking for more money. I’m looking for peace of mind comfort and happiness.
For the longest time, I felt my goals were inadequate. I never wanted a 6 figure business or 10k months. When I started my business I sat down and looked at how much did I need to make to have a comfortable life. And that has been my goal. A goal adjusted to my life and needs and not anchored to some external notion of success.
It’s essential to recognize that the pursuit of more can be a never-ending cycle. There will always be someone who has more money, more clients, and more success. That’s why it’s crucial to define what “enough” means for you personally.
In a world that glorifies excess, it takes courage to resist the pressure to constantly strive for more. But the truth is, more is not always better. It’s possible to have a thriving business that provides for your needs and allows you to live a fulfilling life, without constantly pushing for more.
One way to focus on “enough” is to prioritize what truly matters to you. Is it spending time with loved ones? Pursuing a hobby or passion project? Volunteering in your community? By aligning your goals and actions with your values, you can find more fulfilment and purpose in your life.
Take a step back and look at your expenses and your life. How much do you need to make to live comfortably? And how much time off do you need and want?
From there you can extrapolate what you’d need to charge or how many clients you need.
Remember, there’s no one-size-fits-all definition of success. It’s up to you to define what “enough” means for you and build a life and business that aligns with that vision.
