Success isn’t about the money…

June 16, 2011

In my continued theme of having a rewarding life without money-making you happy, here are three fantastic videos of entrepreneurs to illustrate the point.

The first is a TED video from entrepreneur Richard St. John, who focused too much on the money and lost everything. The 2nd is from Morton Lund.

Morton invested in many, many tech startups, made a pile of cash and then lost it all on a newspaper. Morton is a very charismatic, colourful and entertaining character.

The final video is a video diary from Mitch who’s just lost everything and is starting over again.

Richard St. John: “Success is a continuous journey”:

Mitch lost everything and is starting again:


Here’s a great quote to finish on: “Success isn’t measured by money or power or social rank. Success is measured by your discipline and inner peace.”Mike Ditka (American Football Player, b.1939)
