Yesterday, we did a show about the high cost of instant success. We wanted to add a couple of thoughts to that post today.
It’s not wrong
Some people dream of being rich and famous. Other people think it’s wrong – evil even – to wish for fame and fortune.
BIGG success is life on your own terms. There’s no judgment in that definition. Your vision of BIGG success is all yours. Own it.
There’s nothing wrong with wanting fame and fortune except …
It puts the focus on the wrong thing, the proverbial cart before the horse. Money and celebrity may follow BIGG success. They may be the reward for people who think like an entrepreneur.
Entrepreneurs know that the first value they create won’t accrue to them. They add value to the lives of others. Then they get their reward.
What value are you adding? Who are you helping?
The great separator
Almost everyone longs for a better life. Almost everyone wants to stand out, to be recognized for their unique ability.
However, there’s a great separator. Most people wish for it. They may even long for it.
But they don’t do anything about it.
If you want it, do something about it. Take action.
BIGG success is about entrepreneuring your life. Entrepreneurs start with nothing more than an idea. They leverage the resources at their disposal to turn something small into something BIGG.
You, too, can be an entrepreneur. You, too, can be a BIGG success. And, you never know – fame and fortune may follow.
