Today I want to discuss something a little different from the norm. Most of us have aspirations for what we want out of life. There are many options to choose from; Plumber, Policeman, Dentist, Lawyer, etc. I do believe though, that sometimes the choice is already made for us.
Reflecting on my past, I've always been an entrepreneur, rather I realized it or not. I remember in 7th grade, I used to buy candy in bulk and resell it at school. You know those little boxes of Nerds? I sold those for 50 cents a pop, just to purchase video games for my Sega Dreamcast.
Fast forward to today, I've learned that as an entrepreneur you have to have some kind of goal you want to reach to keep you motivated. Earning enough money to buy video games was my goal back then. The sacrifices we make to achieve our goals often leads us to being misunderstood by most people.
Sometimes it's cutting back on events to spend more time focusing on our goals, cutting back on shopping to better utilize the money, etc. These are things that most people won't do, but you have to have self discipline if you want to achieve. Sometimes it may be upsetting to feel like you're missing out on things. There's nothing wrong with partaking a little here and there, but just budget your time effectively.
Entrepreneurship has many ups and downs, but that's the excitement of it. Always remember, the reward will be greater in the end, so stay focus my fellow and aspiring entrepreneurs. We're in this game together and WE WILL WIN!
