The power of delegating

Dear editor,
MANY people open businesses to make money and be rich. However, they never learn how to delegate work. This mistake can be very costly. The wealth that is the freedom of owning your own business is replaced with the stress of thinking that the business cannot run well or smoothly without you.
This way of thinking will ensure that you burn out from stress. Do not confuse delegating work with micromanaging your employees. You must be able to trust their abilities to lead. Find out what the passions of your team are and see if there are any problems within the business that they are inspired to take action and lead change. This system helps you delegate work without ever having to delegate it. You will begin to see more work being done and accomplished around you.
If not addressed, the sum of these mistakes will begin to add up in cost. Take this moment to reflect on your perceptions. Are you on a path to wealth, or have you just been trying to be rich.
“The joy and fulfillment found in the process of achieving your dreams and living with passion is often confused with the result of being rich. Do not measure your life’s journey to success with the fickle accompaniment of money and riches. Your journey should be measured by the memories gathered, not the receipts; the moments spent in passion, not cash; and happiness shared, not bought.”
