IN CAPABLE HANDS
The answer we seek is discoverable and easy to pinpoint. Sometimes the answer is as close as the man/woman in the mirror. But, can we honestly except this new clear discovery?
I personally have found it a great resolve to be able to hold myself accountable for my own failures as well as my own successes, even if its somewhat of a bitter cup at times to swallow.
I remember a few months ago, when a friend approached me with a business opportunity. After listening intently to his bid, a few things he said stuck out. One was his overwhelming enthusiasm about all the money he was going to make. He basically shouted out that, it was a brand new concept in an industry that was going to change the way everyone was looking at going 'Green". Then he carried on about how, I should get in right now, at the ground level and at the beginning and most importantly I needed to dump whatever I was presently involved in and get signed up. Well, true it did all sound incredible and exciting. So, not meaning to burst his bubble and because he was my friend, I felt compelled to remind him of a few things I thought was cruicial to our conversation.
I looked him square in the eye and said Jack, all of this sounds and appears to be the "ONE", but remember successful businesses have taken time and work to be and maintain tenure in any industry.
The bottom line is.. YOU still have to build it!
I say this because no matter what the goal, dream or venture we connect ourselves to, we are the main spoke in the wheel that will move the many missions we take on daily. WE are the real reasons of make it or break it. Of course, others situations encountered do factor in as contributors to the overall outcome, but its us; the we; the YOU, who decided to turn left vs right,; to say no verses yes; the one who chose to guess about it, rather than to actually know about it.
It's on me, its on you, so the question is.....
ARE YOU IN GOOD HANDS?
