Love what you do, do what you love

I read this brilliant quote many years ago. Recently I have been thinking about it again. It is from Albert Schweitzer:

"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful."

If you stick with something long enough, something you love doing, you will do well. I see evidence of this all the time. It is easy to look at a venture that is a year or two old, where money is tight, and anxiety, as well as excitement, is high, and dismiss it with "small business". Revisit that same group of people in ten or twenty years time and it will be a different story! I see this now all the time. New businesses I was exposed to a decade ago are now in good shape. People stuck to their guns, gave it their all, and now they are flying.

It has often been said that an overnight success takes twenty years.

One thing is for sure, luck definitely favours the persistent! And with that, I better get back to doing what I love.

Vottleland is very very busy at the moment. Many exciting things on the go. Check the Vottle site out; we are rocking!
