Pursue Your Strengths

“I never dreamed about success. I worked for it.” Estes Lauder

You can dream about success. You can create vision boards. You can talk about success. But success comes to those who pursue. What should you pursue?

Do you pursue success? Does adding value to the world take priority? Where should your focus be?

Viktor Frankl insightfully shared the following, “Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself.”

You must focus on creating value for others. Pursue creating value and you’ll leave your mark on the world.

Albert Einstein expressed this thought in these words, “Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”

The most efficient way to add value to the world is by using your strengths. As David Frost said, “Don’t aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.”

Follow your strengths. Live your passion. Add value to the world. Because you dedicate yourself to a purpose greater than yourself, success will come naturally.

What makes you passionate?

About This Little Agency: Back in 2007, in a little town on the southern border of Washington State, Trevor and Kama Wilson braved the naysayers saying it was absurd to try to earn their full-time income together online. Despite criticism and even moving into a single car garage for awhile so they could pursue their dream, they worked unearthly hours, studied endlessly, made costly mistakes, and figured out how to make their entire income online. After successfully running 700 websites (and living entirely and well off the profits), they opened Smitten (formerly Peppermint) to use their inborn, honed obsessions for alluring design, captivating content and personable branding to help other business owners get more ❤ too.
