We have talked this week about building your business. We likened your work to that of a farmer. Mainly because entrepreneurs and farmers have the same types of concerns. Both need to work hard and make excellent products. It feels as though the work is never done because it is definitely not a nine to five Monday through Friday job.
Nobody can do the work for us. Each of us holds the responsibility for making our dreams work. No matter how you might try to outsource your desires, the same thing will almost always happen. You end up with the ideas of those you hired and not your own. If you are going to make your mark in this life, you must be the one to reach out and do so.
Hard work? Yes. Is the work beyond your scope? No. You may have to learn, talk with others, gather ideas, make plans, remake plans a time or two when they don’t work. Use elbow grease and midnight oil more than you might wish, and many other things. In the end, we learn that we are far more resilient and able than we ever gave ourselves credit for having.
I don’t want to just leave you today with the idea that you can do this. Your entire effort is so much more than that. You are the only one who’s destiny is to make your dreams become realities.
Believe in yourself. Find the good in your plans and ideas. And do not let anyone talk you out of or giving into abandoning your ideas.
Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.
