- Henry Ford
I love this quote! Fundamentally you are the “owner” of how you react, embrace or recoil from any situation that life presents to you with. Mr. Ford spearheaded a new era, industry and lifestyle and despite many obstacles, which included bankruptcies, possessed the resilience and determination to succeed. How- you ask? Or is it why?
Decisions are made every day that will impact you personally and financially, but they are the decision for the moment and you must recognize that future success is not based on the successes or the failures of the past. The key to success is finishing stronger then when you started. Every chapter of this ride is an important element of this journey. It is an incredible opportunity to bring the riches of relationships, wisdom and passion that will ensure a very meaningful life.
By engaging these principals, you are arming yourself with the tools that allow you to see the “opportunity” in the midst of challenge and chaos- perceived or real. It is okay to take a few steps backwards….to really aim for the dream. The key is to value the steps along the way and learn from each. Think of yourself as the “entrepreneur” of you, first. Discover your passion and make sure it is relevant. Possess a process for continuous improvement…..that truly helps create
opportunities. Take pride and ownership in everything you do and do so respectfully.
Big steps, little steps, triumphs and set-backs- they are all pieces of your life.
