I’m almost 700 blog posts in. I have rarely had anything go viral. I haven’t yet become the famous writer I inspire to be, nor have I built a life-changing personal brand.
The older I get, the less I care about that.
Every day, I see more and more examples of why being useful and being of service is the true measurement of my success. Success is a bi-product of service. To get what you want, you should help other people get what they want.
One day I hope to be more publically recognized for my writing. It is a dream of mine, for sure. Until then, I will continue to write for the people who want to follow me. I feel very privileged to write to you all every morning.
There was a time when I would be thrilled to discover that 10 people read one of my blog posts. I was grateful for the opportunity to be heard.
I don’t know what the future holds, but I think I am on the right path.
