One of the topics that’s often discussed here is always overcoming. When a normal person looks in it can often be perceived like success is so dang hard. Something is always trying to stop you in life, maybe it’s not worth it. A true entrepreneurs knows 3 things. First It’s always worth it and second we have to ALWAYS overcome some challenge or we have just overcome something and we are inspiring someone else to do the same.
Let’s talk about being worth it for a moment. Look at people like Steve Jobs, he was fired from the company he started and took to a 2 billion dollar company at 30 years old. Over coming that obstacle is what made him who he became. My last post I wrote about Steve Harvey, Steve Harvey today is one of the funniest TV host ever. But through the eighties he was homeless off and on several times living out of his truck between comedy gigs. If Steve Harvey gave up then what? Dani Johnson, was homeless on the beach in Hawaii. That obstacle inspired her to start a business and become a millionaire in 2 years. Barbara Corcoran, was a woman and wanted to start a career in real estate in New York where it was a man’s game. Because of that obstacle and overcoming it she turned 1,000 dollar loan into 100 million dollars.
Success isn’t complicated but it’s never going to be easy. How many people had a ton of ideas of what they wanted life to be like when they were 18 or 19. Let me ask you, what did you want to do when you were 18? What did you plan for your life to look like back then? Who were you going to marry? What were your kids going to be like? What kind of house were you going to live in? What trips and experiences were you going to have? Why did you let life stop you from doing those things? Your time could come when you are in your 20’s like it did for Dani Johnson, or 30’s like it did for Steve Jobs or even your 40’s or 50’s like it did for Steve Harvey. What if Steve Harvey stopped pursuing comedy for a “stable” job? You will have to face your challenges at some point, you either look for the easiest way around it or you take it head on and go through it!
Finally we are supposed to over come a challenge and then share that testimony with others to inspire them. I started a small business from my home over the internet.
I think every person who has had success is attempting to share that success and if you listen they are even trying to tell you how they did it. From Steve Harvey, to Dani Johnson and even me just sharing my experiences. Too often people can come up with all kinds of things that are stopping them from moving forward. Sometimes you need just one reason to take action and overcome.
