Your Assets Are Not A Dollar Sign

They are your inherent gifts and strengths.  Here’s why.


Each of us is born with a potential Unique Ability that has four characteristics: First, it is a superior ability that other people notice and value; second, we love doing it and want to do it as much as possible; third, it is energizing both for us and others around us; and fourth, we keep getting better, never running out of possibilities for further improvement.
— Unique Ability® Creating the Life You Want, by Catherine Nomura and Julia Waller with Shannon Waller, based on a concept by Dan Sullivan.

We begin with this excerpt because it captures what we at Lenox believe can drive both the greatest wealth and happiness for people of all ages and income levels.  Simply put, a person’s greatest assets are not a dollar sign or their net worth but, instead, their inherent gifts and strengths. 


Money will come and go.  Careers can flourish or fail.  Luck may be on your side one day and not the next.  Most sustainable in life are the natural talents people are born with, what they’re really good at, what they like doing most, and what makes them happiest.  The challenge for most people is to be willing to recognize their inherent gifts and strengths and to let them guide their life.


Think about it.  Based on the four Unique Ability characteristics noted above, you probably already know your own Unique Ability.  What if your life could be built around developing it, excelling at it, making a living from it (perhaps beyond your wildest dreams), and at the same time loving what you do each and every day?


Unfortunately, because people can be so deeply focused on building wealth, reaching titles and financial benchmarks others have for them, they forego their Unique Ability and assume a role or career they’re “supposed” to do –– one that is true neither to their heart nor their inherent strengths.  Too often, people are conditioned from an early age whether by family, society or culture to fit in and follow others’ expectations rather than pursue their own aspirations.


At Lenox, we believe you can have it all. The Lenox Mindset is to grow, preserve and manage wealth in today's world starting with your strongest asset... you.  We help you discover your strengths and how you can put them to work to create and build wealth.  We know that wealth and happiness are simultaneously attainable.

Someone’s growth to wealth creation is based on… did you identify your gifts? ... did you identify who should receive your gifts? ... and are you getting paid fairly for your gifts? We get this right; we can change anyone’s life
