Ok yes so I stole that directly from Nike… please don’t judge me. But it fits perfectly into what I want to talk about today. And that quite simply is: If you want it, go and do it!!!
So what the hell am I talking about? It’s actually a very simple principle. If you want something in life, YOU need to go get it. No one is going to give it to your free. If you want something you have to work your butt off for it. And let me tell you something, the harder you work for something the sweeter it is when you get it.
This whole blog came from a discussion about taking the leap and starting your own business. I did this when I decided to started doing voice overs full time. Getting rid of “The Man” and working for myself and being responsible for my own success or failure. Now that isn’t for everyone and I do realize that. But if you have been sitting around for any length of time and saying “I want to” or “I could” or “I should” JUST DO IT!
Take the leap. Have faith in yourself. Are you ready to jump off the cliff, quit your full time job and dive deep into something full time? Maybe, maybe not. You have to do your homework. I’m not saying take a blind leap, do the prep work, but start today. Waiting until tomorrow, or until the time is right; the time is now. It will never get better than now.
The state of our economy and the state of the employment industry these days more and more people are branching off and working for themselves and becoming masters of their own destinies. There’s nothing stopping you but yourself.
Until the next time you hear me, be good to each other and be nice. It’s not always easy to do, but it is free.
