You have a choice.
Do you want to grow into a huge corporation?
Do you want to build a lifestyle business?
Do you want to have more time outside of work?
Do you want to achieve fame and fortune?
You have a choice
In fact, you are the sum of your choices.
You are the average of your actions.
So, what actions are you taking?
Looking for answers (in all the wrong places)
You will encounter a million stories about entrepreneurship. Blueprints. Frameworks. Even this weekly sage newsletter.
But all the stories mean nothing if they don’t get you closer to achievement.
You need to act as a filter.
Take in all the information that you can process. Make choices on how to act on that information, align actions to your strategy.
Then work the plan.
I know, that sounds overwhelming.
Entrepreneurship IS overwhelming
You will always be overwhelmed in business.
Every step of the journey will feel like the biggest challenge that you will ever face. You will vow that once you make it through that step, things will get easier.
And when you solve each problem, that challenge gets easier. It often goes away completely.
But then another challenge will come up. And it will feel like the toughest challenge yet.
And you will tell yourself “if I can just make it through this one, things will get easier.”
And it will get easier. Until the next challenge.
If you knew that each success would be met with more challenges when you first started, you wouldn’t have become an entrepreneur. The mountain would seem far too high. Unassailable.
Ignorance is bliss.
What do you want to be in business?
We keep on seeking answers, but the answer comes from within.
It determines your path, and keeps you invested for the long haul.
It is the source of your ups, and your downs. It is what gives you satisfaction, and what keeps you crawling back for more. Even when things don’t go well.
What will it take to achieve your goals?
I’ll give you a hint. Nobody sets off to start the biggest company in the world.
Every entrepreneur starts off trying to solve real world problems.
Then they solve another. Soon it becomes an addiction.
The companies that get big? They keep raising the bar with each problem they solve.
So what do you want to be in business?
And how are your actions taking you there?
