Confessions of A ‘Would Be’ Entreprenuer: NEVER GIVE UP!

Posted on Updated on


This may sound extremely cliché, but we must never give up!  Let me explain.

If you are anything like me, you have high hopes! I’m not talking about those dreamy imaginative thoughts that we have while in our lucid state of consciousness. No, instead I ‘m talking about tangible efforts that we each apply with those faith-filled thoughts to reach our goals. I call myself a ‘would be’ entrepreneur because like many people, I’m still in route, and  I haven’t quite reached my destination.

Visions of taking our talents to new horizons and allowing them to carry us into places in life that would otherwise be a whimpering notion weigh in the back of our minds.  For you and me my friend, WE MUST NEVER GIVE UP!

Even when it snows in July, and ‘t doesn’t rain in May, we still must persevere.  Even when there is a long-lasting drought after we’ve fertilized our ground, we must press on.

I say this because it is much harder to go against the grain than to go with the flow. After studying many successful entrepreneurs, they all seem to possess a similar characteristic. THEY KEEP ON GOING!

It’s that ‘tunnel vision attribute’ that they seem to innately possess that we must connect with and tap into. Our strength lies in our ability to see victory in advance beyond our current situations.

Instead of remaining  frustrated, let’s remember to give thanks for the big and the small milestones. Let us remember that no matter how hard we think we have it, someone else has it harder. Let us remember to celebrate the small accomplishments, as we keep our eyes on the bigger prize.

Just a few quotes from successful men and women:

Sara Blakely, founder of Spanx Shapewear says it this way, “Failure is not the outcome. Failure is not trying.” Thomas Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” William Rosenberg, founder of Dunkin’ Donuts replied, “Show me a person who never made a mistake, and I will show you a person who never did anything.” The list goes on and on.

Every now and again, we ALL need a little encouragement. It’s great to have people around us that believe in us. But awesomeness is when we can dig deep within and find that flicker of hope that refuses to die or fail within our own selves. Until next time, Much Success on your ventures and thank you for reading!
