That’s the recent inspiring quote that I found from the great Mark Twain. I’ve learned an amazing lesson from this that I will take with me everywhere I go. Disappointment will be from the missed opportunities, just because I was too intimidated to do something and fail. Since we last spoke I have moved out of my old apartment, am currently still looking, but most importantly I finally got my first writing gig. I will actually be getting paid to write soon!!
The excitement of what’s to come is amazing! Sometimes a little overwhelming to think about, but amazing nonetheless. This is something that I have dreamed of doing and by God, now my journey begins. The gig is not on my usual topics, but is definitely something that I know I will enjoy talking about. There’s this thing I have for looking back at where people came from and how they climbed the ladder of success. To me that is way more vital of an information than what they are doing now, because they have made it now and are basking in their success. I want to know the blood sweat and tear years that got them here.
So the new mission if you could not tell, is do well with the new writing gig and continue to improve with being my own publicist. The focus of the writing that I will be doing pertains to Entrepreneurs. This is something I believe many can relate to. Even those who have never taken interest in business can admire and learn from their work ethic. Not to mention, studying an entrepreneur can teach you about versatility and adaptability. Which can be effective in any work environment and even life.
Entrepreneurs in my opinion are true hustlers. Theses amazing individuals have an intense determination that allows little room for wasting time. To entrepreneurs every minute counts. Every second is an opportunity that can help them expand their empire. The real entrepreneurs, the ones who are successful or climbing the ladder of success, are efficient multitaskers. Constantly juggling jobs, franchises, new ideas, and people interaction(which we all know is a job on its own).
Long story short, I plan on embodying some of that Entrepreneur Spirit. I intend to get highly influenced by the very same ‘hustlers’ I will be studying. Let their will power infect me like a contagious flu and encourage me to keep striving for more. Like the quote by Mark Twain, I will ‘Sail away from my safe harbour’. Besides, where has that safe harbour gotten me? Exactly! It was not until I started taking risk that my life started changing and becoming something worth writing about. So my wish is that you do the same, take a few risk. Not like gambling your entire savings on a bet risk, but following your dreams kind of risk. Telling the person you’ve always secretly loved, that you love them type of risk. Actually pursuing your passion type of risk!
