Motivation Monday: Be the Captain of Your Own Fate
Video Credit: Team Fearless
Do you ever question why you embarked on entrepreneurship and feel like quitting? Let's get real we all have those moments. Yes, even me! But when you feel down in the dumps ask yourself why do I want to quit? Is it that the work is too hard or are you really afraid that your “crazy idea” just might work. So the real question becomes, are you afraid of success?
I love how the speaker in the Team Fearless video states “The Entrepreneur knows one thing. I will make it, maybe not immediately, but absolutely and definitely.” Running in the marathon of entrepreneurship may be difficult, but the hard work does pay off!
We must remember that success sometimes occurs in small steps rather than in leaps and bounds. The key is remaining persistent in the race even when you fall and make mistakes. Learn from these trials and keep progressing. Team Fearless gives a great mantra to live by:
"I am the captain of my fate.
The master of my soul.
The boss of my dreams.
The King (or Queen) of my goals."
Now is the time to show the world what you're made of. Not tomorrow, not next week, not next year but right NOW! So what steps are you going to take to make that happen? Just a little food for thought.
