The Pursuit of Happiness and
Successful Business Ownership
The “pursuit of happiness” is a controversial phrase in The Declaration of Independence of the United States of America. Back when this defining document was written, happiness had a different meaning than our hedonistic pleasure seeking contemporary meaning. In the 1700s happiness was a concept that today we would call luck or chance. Nothing says independence stronger than one having the opportunity to secure their finances on their own terms.
What does the pursuit of happiness have to do
with successful business ownership?
Back then, early Americans were still fighting for their opportunity to create a life of liberty and freedom. The pursuit of happiness was an essential part of this. Why? Luck and chance supported creating a new life or way of being. Sounds similar to entrepreneurship or dreaming big and creating a successful business, doesn’t it?
Over 200 years after this document was created, Business Owners who pursue this happiness to have a life filled with liberty, are still on track with the original intention of this concept. Although it’s hard to deny that some Business Owners are caught up in the glitz and glamour of the gains entrepreneurship offers, other Business Owners are still interested in the pursuit of happiness and all that it provides humanity.
