The Other Side of Strength

What an amazing article I read before work this morning. If you think you know what strength is, think again. Great read by the founder of Fitocracy, Mr Richard Talens @DickTalens.

Action, action, action. Speaks much louder than words. People look for inspiration to hit them, but usually, taking some small steps on your own will allow the inspiration to come.

From Tim: Measuring Sticks!

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.
