“Some pursue success. Others create it.”

This very simple thought – just six brief words – offers a valuable insight into how people go about achieving career success. “Pursuit” suggests a “chase” by a “pursuer” until a “pursued” is caught. There’s nothing wrong with thinking “I want to be a research scientist, a baseball pitcher, a CEO, or a nurse.” Others don’t “pursue” or “chase” success, but rather slowly build toward it, one step at a time. It’s a matter not of running to catch something but rather proceeding, step by step, as carefully as you can, along a path forward, and in this way finding what it is you seem to be pursuing. It’s a matter of finding and then doing what you want to do, in the way you want to do it, with those you enjoy doing it with. It is less “the pursuit” and more “the passion.” Think about it; I hope this makes some sense to you.
