I believe we get what we focus on and as entrepreneurs, we do our utmost best to focus on the positive. This attitude serves us well especially when we get to those inevitable points in life or business when things just seem really hard. I know that for me there have been many times when life would get incredibly challenging, and it gets that way for all of us.
Today’s motivational video contains an excerpt from the Rocky movie. I was late to the party when it came to actually watching the movie (I saw it for the first time last year), but I had heard this motivating piece from it many times.
It reminds me that no matter how big the challenge or how big the problem, I can always draw a line in the sand and say “That is who I used to be and this is who I am now. I am bigger than this problem.” When we come up against a problem, we always, always have a stark choice to make – we can choose to be the hero and be bigger than the problem, or we can choose to be the victim and let the problem be bigger than us.
Entrepreneurs are people who have committed to being bigger than “the problem” day after day. In fact, the bigger the problem is, the bigger you grow by overcoming it. And the bigger you grow, the bigger your business grows.
Enjoy the video and be the HERO in your life and business this week. :)
