Hope

Hope

"But I hope you’ll remember, during those times of doubt and frustration, that there is nothing naïve about your impulse to change the world. Because all it takes is one act of service — one blow against injustice — to send forth what Robert Kennedy called that tiny ripple of hope. That’s what changes the world. That one act." - Barack Obama

Regardless of political views, this advice can resonate with anyone thinking about taking on the entrepreneurial journey. 

If you're passionate. If you have something to say. If you have something you need to do. 

Stop hesitating and go do it. 

People who take this kind of action end up either where they wanted to be or somewhere closer. 

The opposite means stagnation. 

Ask yourself the tough question: "Do I want to be at this level for the rest of my life?". If not, take that one act. Create that tiny ripple of hope. And change the world. 🌎👁 

Ego

Ego

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” - Lao Tzu 

Ego is the enemy. 

Any solid construct of identity is limiting and stagnant. Sometimes they're expressed as our deeply held values. But most of the time they're an expression of stubbornness. 

It's scary to change because it's vulnerable. But how are we supposed to grow, try new things, or even learn if we're unwilling to leave the comfort zone or our negative selves behind? 

Let's think of a bad habit today, and just observe it as something fluid. Something we have the power to change. 🙌 

Perseverance

Perseverance

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King is THE quintessential example for the power and significance of perseverance.

If you push through. If you don't take no for an answer. If you embody the opposite of everything your enemy wishes to label you with. 

You will make it.

We cannot fail if we don't accept failure. It is just the difficulty of the journey to success that stops those who give up.

Perseverance is looking above and beyond the journey because we've already instilled a razor-sharp focus on the end goal. Everything else is temporary.

Fight for it. Like Dr. King, you can achieve your dream. 🌎😊
