A few days ago, a friend of mine visited after a long while and we had some time to catch up. We talked about the days we lived together, how we strived with our entrepreneurial ventures and especially our counterparts back then.
You see, a few months into going entrepreneurial full time, I met my husband, got married, changed location and was pregnant: so the stories she recounted to me brought back memories and I couldn’t help but have mixed feelings.
“This person is doing so well”
“This other person is into this and that and seems to have found their calling there”
“So and so has expanded to places unimaginable”
“She has gone international”
I was indeed happy for them but I could not help but wonder where I would have been if I had not moved. But one common thing about these people struck me: CONSISTENCY.
They all woke up in the morning and took a conscious decision to go after their dreams: again and again. They made plans and followed through on executing them. They deprived themselves of certain ‘comforts’ but chose to sacrifice repeatedly for the cause (their dreams) they believed in. Days turned to weeks, weeks into months and 4 years down the line, my friend and I are discussing them as success stories.
What is holding you back?
What’s your excuse?
Family? Your spouse? Your kids? Fear of failure or rejection?
If only you can take a step, just one step closer to your hearts’ desires on a daily basis. Commit to giving an inch and watch it turn to feet, give a feet and it may just become yards, yards to miles and miles to that contentment and satisfaction you’ve always lived for.
I pray and wish that you would!
See you at the top!!!
