“You don’t choose the life of being an entrepreneur, it chooses you,” is something I found myself saying to a young entrepreneur the other day.
In over a decade in business, I have seen very few true entrepreneurs; people who play big, who take real risk, who get way outside their comfort zone, who risk ridicule every day, who believe when others don’t, who evolve their industry.
It’s not that people can’t do those things, it’s that they won’t do those things.
Your comfort zone is an incredibly attractive place, and most people won’t actually leave it because they won’t leave what’s inside it behind.
If the life of being an entrepreneur is calling you, be prepared to leave a lot behind because the journey is tough.
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.
The thought of hard decisions is often worse than the consequences.
Some people bring magic into your life.
I’m in my office at the moment. This morning I’ve planned next week, had multiple meetings and worked on some strategic moves for my business.
