Top 5 VIA as an Entrepreneur

Posted on February 11, 2019 at 2:35 PM

I've been wondering a lot lately about myself as an entrepreneur. Like am I cable of being of making the right choices in this journey, or if I even possess the drive that it takes to roll it out and be successful. Then I look at all my associates on my social media and I see them launching off big projects, clothing lines, books and music videos and wonder if I'm even doing enough! It drives me crazy half the time so I just stay off social media and I focus on my own path as a reserved, introverted loner entrepreneur; one with big dreams and a lot of ideas and thoughts to share from my knowledge and experience. This will be written in SKY BLUE  as it will be coming from my intellectual life domain...

I Just took this online survey, developed by Psychologists called “Values in Action”, for short, V.I.A. It provides a RANKED list of you 24 strongest qualities…They encouraged the test takers to think about how you might use your top 5 strengths in your relationship, at the office and in your free time. People who consistently apply “signature strengths” experience less depression and more happiness. It’s also an easy way to refocus your efforts to better set you up for success…To whom it may concern…

So these were my top 5 Values in Action


1). Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence:noticing and appreciating beauty, excellence, and/or skilled performances in various domains of life, from nature to art to mathematics to science to EVERYDAY experience.


I related to this and began to notice this within myself. My home, for example has a “LIFE” theme in which I appreciate the beauty of life. My TV shows pictures of Nature (waterfalls, birds, flowers, lightening, deserts, city lights etc). I have a wall mount entitled “LIFE A-Z” and it just tells you what life is about from A-Z: A—art, B—balance, C—choices, D—dream, E—education etc. All the way down to Z—zest. These are essentially things to value and appreciate in life. And go figure, I chose to spend $200 on this art piece. It’s because of my #1 strength that I’m growing a poppy flower on my patio…and it is so cute and awesome. It’s because of my #1 strength that I choose to have water as my center piece on my coffee table. Let me tell you about water... Water is one of those vital things in life, it makes up about 71% of the earths surface, oceans hold 96.5% of ALL earths water! Water also exists in the air as water vapor, in rivers and lakes, in icecaps and glaciers, in the ground as soil moisture and in aquifers, and even in US and your dogs (who doesn't love dogs?). Water is definitely something to value and appreciate. Water is life. Not to mention, I’m also a Water sign!

I love the moon. I have this 7 panel wall canvas of a full moon because the moon is an awesome and beautiful star…And lastly what really amazed me was see that my strength was illustrated in my logo I designed. TheLoveProjectt Life Domains gives attention to all aspect of life that make us whole! Because the mission and belief is this: If an individual is well balanced in the 7 LIFE domains (i.e. Spiritual, Financial, Intellectual, Environmental, Emotional, Social, and Physical) then the individual is more likely to feel more self-actualization and passionate about what they do in life OR DISCOVER a passion for what they want to do in life.

It’s a mission to be your version of WHOLE and TRANSCENDENT. Synonyms for TRANSCENDENT: Extraordinary, Ultimate, Accomplished, Boundless, Consummate, IDEAL, Completeness, Evolution, Purity, EXCELLENCE, Crown, Wholeness. etc). Antonyms to TRANSCENDENT are: Uselessness, Incompleteness, Start, Beginning, Failure, Flaw, Deficiency, Damage, Imperfection.

To be clear,, it’s not “mission impossible”, it’s your story…your own unique version of self-actualization, i.e. the realization or fulfillment of one’s talents and potentialities, especially considered as a drive or need present in everyone.

But those words: Realization and Fulfillment are transcendent synonyms.


Appreciation of beauty and excellence is my #1 strength but how do I exercise that in my entrepreneurial journey? Well, it is for this reason I can design and envision the perfect environment for people to succeed, be in awe, or simply have fun! Designing and envisioning seems to be my strong suit within this strength. I hope I am making you curious about your own...Which brings me to my next top strength. 


2) Hope: Expecting the best in the future and working to achieve it; believing that a good future is something that can be brought about


Once again, this character strength falls under the transcendent virtue. And how can I make money using hope? Lol perhaps plenty of ways, this gives me something to think about...moving on.


3) Judgement: Thinking things through and examining them from all sides; not jumping to conclusions being able to change ones mind in light of evidence; weighing all evidence fairly


4) Prudence: Being careful about one’s choices; not taking UNDUE risks; not saying or doing things that might be later regretted.


I think 3 and 4 go hand in hand. I think I may have had a hard time accepting these things about myself as an entrepreneur; Prudence especially. I don't know too many prudent entrepreneurs in my circle. I’m the only one. Which makes me feel like perhaps I don’t do enough. For one, I don’t take UNDUE risks…I only take risks that have been carefully thought out, premeditated on and planned. Like a chess move…and so for that, it may take months in between moves (sometimes we’re talking spending BIG money too!) This is where my judgement kicks in. For these two strengths are probably the reasons why I don’t move as as fast as the other entrepreneurs in my associate and social media circle. Would you consider yourself prude?

Synonyms for Prudence: CAUTION, diligence, tact, wisdom, conservatism, foresight, judgement, calculation, coolness, concern, reasoning etc…

Antonyms for Prudence are: SPENDING, squandering, (like most entrepreneurs I know); Neglect, negligence, and recklessness…etc. I don’t want to sound too negative.


I am not one of those “starving artist” entrepreneurs who just spends on undue risk just to make money! I prefer to work smart and be patient. I save, and think about the value my product and service can and will have to my family and friends and to their family and friends. But what I learned is that, my strength in judgement and prudence is not something to beat myself up over, it’s just what makes me different. And when I see how those other entrepreneurs are in my associate and social media circle? They’re stressed, they look tired, they were once homeless…Is that something to be proud of? To prove to us that you work hard?

Work smart, not hard

Judgement falls on the virtue of wisdom. Would you consider yourself wise? Synonyms for wisdom are: insight, common sense, SANITY, knowledge, intelligence, PRUDENCE(there’s that word), understanding, experience, stability etc…there’s a lot of words, the list can go on and on…


Prudence falls under the virtue of temperance. I’m not too familiar with this word. Synonyms for temperance are: self-restraint, abstinence, control, self-denial, frugality, moderation, happy medium, self-discipline, etc…


I see the trait of prudence and temperance especially in my personality and in my entrepreneurship! I can’t help myself, and I beat myself up over it. Yes, I feel self-denial a lot…more than people know and yet I’m accuse of being arrogant; and I believe in taking my entrepreneurial tasks in zen moderation… But that doesn't make me any less successful that the profile next to me. It DOES takes the frustration off my shoulders knowing where these confused, “not-good-enough” feelings come from. Now I can stop putting myself in a box of how an entrepreneur is “suppose” to be—and comparing myself to my associates. Now I can change my perspective on the matter and look at perhaps the benefits of being a prude entrepreneur. This bring me to my last top 5 value in action.

5) Perspective: Being able to provide wise counsel to others (including myself); having ways of looking at the world that makes sense to oneself/others.

All done! If you made it this far, I thank you. My brands' mission supports any and ALL ways that lead to a more joyful, fulfilling, passionate and transcendent lifestyle, so I especially appreciated this article and I am glad I’m able to share with you. I hope you take interest in discovering your own top 5 VIA now (It takes about 10 min minimum, 15 min maximum)!
