I love business. I love the impact a great business can have on its customers, its staff, the wider community, and for the owner.
Business done well is like alchemy; you can create value where there once was nothing, you can create value from an idea, you can turn ‘lead’ into ‘gold’.
Business owners who do it well can get very rich, if that’s what they want. But in my experience those whose sole purpose for getting into business is to get rich tend to struggle.
Money follows value as I shared in last week’s blog.
Give to get.
As Zig Zigglar famously said, 'You can have everything in life that you want if you just give enough other people what they want.'
Change isn’t that hard.
Our lives are filled with paths that we have seduced ourselves into believing are impossible for us to take.
A while ago I encouraged my daughter Zara not to listen to a friend who wanted her to do something that she didn’t feel good about.
When we focus on a past that we don’t like, we are living in a state where we are hoping an imaginary future will heal a non-existent past.
Recently I was in a situation that wasn’t what I wanted, but there wasn’t anything I could do to change it.
Is it to never stop believing?
If you fill up every area of your life with little regard for the quality of what you’re filling it with, there’s not much room left.
“Fortune favours the bold.”
“Look before you leap.”
So, which one is it???
We all make them.
