Dopkins Clear View Solution

The Need

An article published in the Harvard Business Review investigates the complexities of success. While researching data for “Success That Lasts,” the authors found that there are four irreducible components of enduring success:

1. Happiness (feelings of pleasure or contentment about your life);
2. Achievement (accomplishments that compare favorably against similar goals others have strived for);
3. Significance (the sense that you’ve made a positive impact on people you care about);
4. Legacy (a way to establish your values or accomplishments so as to help others find future success).

Take away one component and it no longer feels like “real” success.

>> In our experience working with people who achieved personal, professional and financial success, a key challenge they face is maintaining a clear view of where they stand financially. Without a clear view, the ability to develop strategies that focus on building, protecting and transferring wealth is put at risk, as is each of the components of enduring success.
