I never dreamed about success. I worked for it. – Estée Lauder

Estée Lauder was an American businesswoman. She co-founded her cosmetics company with her husband, Joseph Lauter. Lauder was the only woman on Time magazine’s 1998 list of the 20 most influential business geniuses of the 20th century.

I never dreamed about success. I worked for it.

– Estée Lauder

A quote by Estée Lauder that can apply to many entrepreneurs. They realize they became successful without really dreaming or planning to be. But in reality if there is a strong need for the service or product, and the entrepreneur was not aware of this before starting the venture, this scenario is bound to happen.

Some say, you need to chase success, make it happen, find opportunities and provoke luck. Others say, just work hard and don’t think of it, it will come when it will.

In Estée’s case, she said she worked for the success, does it mean working hard or chasing opportunities, or both ? We’ll never know.
