Missed Once, Twice, Thrice Got It!
Like many of you, I am one of those Entrepreneur types. Give me
Line, and I'll Step Over It. Tell Me I Can't, Just Watch Me! Big
Dreams In My Heart Comin' True ? You Betcha !
I missed the first chance. Why? The *They* People said: Lifes
Success Looks *this* way.
One of my many career/livelihoods was owning & franchising my
own Fitness Centers, from which I also developed a Unique
Approach to weight loss. I loved being who I was when I was
But, I went back to *work* for Corporate America. Did that for 5
years. Made good money, had great perks, was optimistic and
enthusiastic, but not happy. Only then I did not know what happy
in my livelihood meant because of what the *they* people said
Success is supposed to look like and how you get there.
While I was in corporate America & also being an Entre- preneur,
I started my own mail order business. And I started getting
checks in the mail for something I loved and was good at. Wow,
what a Feeling !
Corporate America changed, and I, because of the *they* people
conditioning went with another Corporation, more and better big
bucks and perks, still not happy. And again for the 2nd time, I
gave up what I loved doing, because of the *time* needed to
devote to the corporate thing, and because *success and
financial security* was supposed to*look like this*.
Then It came. No More. I could not take it. I knew there was
more, I just did not know what it was. I quit reading all of the
Business & Marketing stuff that I used to love & absorb like a
sponge, it was my hobby reading all of that great stuff.
Instead, I chose to find out how stuff really works, and not how
we are *taught* it works. And this now 3rd time, I am working
totally for myself. I have a very profitable E-Media Business
that is fun and full of money and the momentum increases daily.
My Moral to this story: Forget the *they* people and what you've
been *taught*. *Swing for the Fences*, and then just watch what
happens to your life ! (sj)
