From my man Tim comes another great post. You may not want to hear it, but you should. He’s right. 100%. Enjoy and happy Friday!
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. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long run–in the long run, I say–success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think of it.
Thank you Tim Mcauley for the wonderful piece on success this week. As such, I felt the need to share a quote Tim used in his piece. I’ve read it many times this week so far. Please enjoy.
It is from Victor Frankl’s “Man’s Search for Meaning” pages 16-17. Although I am not familiar with Mr Frankl or his work, I think this quote is wonderful no matter what one’s views may be.
A great tribute to Bruce Lee - wanted to share!
Good morning everyone, I hope the start of summer is finding everyone well. My apologies for not posting in awhile; there was a time of reflection I am coming out of and feel in the right state to back back to a few posts a week.
My friend Stephanie, who I passed “The Go-Giver” to, was generous enough to read and pass to a friend of hers. The first reader thoughts from my experiment are below. To refresh your memory, I am passing the book along in the hopes that people who are presently strangers to me, can be toughed by the gift of Misters Burg and Mann’s book. I am curious to see how many people can read the copy of the book I purchased, and also how far away from Valley Forge, PA (yes, George Washington Valley Forge) this book can travel :) Please enjoy the comments below, and have a great week!
"I loved it and read it all the way through in one sitting. Couldn’t put it down. I am new to real estate and this is a good manual as to how to run your business and your life. This is the way I lived years ago but wasn’t aware that over time my generous ways fell by the wayside. People would just give me things for no reason, so I thought, but then realized I was giving them time and compassion and real interest in their stories, something not many have the time and energy for. I am one of the masses lately and not taking time or finding genuine interest in others. I noticed the response I get is very different. Life is way more magical with true connections and with concern for others well being and success. Thanks for sharing."

My buddy Rich had this on Facebook today, I thought it was a great piece to reflect on as we approach the end of the week.
Happy Friday everyone!
