“As sure as the sun rises, I know exactly what you’re going to say after you have your own independence, wealth, health and happiness…
“Now, remind me, why didn’t I ask for two, or more?”
And then, we’ll give each other a slow motion knuckle-to-knuckle punch.

Be careful what you wish for. Sometimes, in life, we are so eager to succeed, to reach wealth, health and ultimate happiness at the expense of living our life today. We focus to much into the future and not living our life in the present. Not enough time in the day make us think we are missing out on things, and forget to appreciate what we already have. If you feel you don’t have enough, just look around you and that should be a good wake-up call. We are a society focus on instant gratification, and lack a tremendous amount of patience. You want your business to hit the 1 million mark (gross revenue) after its first year of operation or you lose hope and abandon your dreams. You want the new gadgets, the new phone even though yours works perfectly fine. We search for more things to make us happy which doesn’t really do in the long run.
You need to decide what makes you happy. Life is to short to not live it fully. When you work on a business, enjoy the journey and its destination will be very fulfilling. Do not worry about the how’s or when’s, just focus on what you can do today to progress forward. Never stagnate with your effort. Be bold, be courageous and do not let fear control your actions. Like the sun will rise every morning, your effort should be the same. Every morning, work on making changes to your approach to better yourself and your business. Every effort you put today, you will see changes in the future. Plant your seeds now and watch it grow. Do not expect things happening overnight, because it is just an illusion with lots of disappointment. The road to success is never a straight line going up, life is a roller-coaster and it will make you nauseous at times. Be ready for a ride and overnight success usually takes around 10 years. So buckle up my friends, it will be long ride.
