“Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.”
Jim Rohn, Entrepreneur & Motivational Speaker (1930-2009)
I realized recently with the help of Jim Rohn that in order for things to change, I have to change. Working on personal development is the most important step when starting a new business. It takes self-discipline, courage, persistence, time management, belief in yourself, and a willingness to succeed no matter what the cost to get a business off the ground. Since these traits do not always come naturally to most people including myself, time must be invested in helping yourself develop the skills necessary to become better. You have to develop yourself mentally, physically and spiritually to be your best. This includes reading books and listening to audio recordings by successful people consistently, making time for spiritual growth, limiting your time with negative people and surrounding yourself with positive people. Most importantly you have to be open to change and be teachable. I am starting this blog to chronicle my journey of starting my own businesses to help other people see that there are many opportunities in this world, but sometimes you have to create them. Have a Blessed Day!
