It is so easy to be a Negative Nelly right?
In the entrepreneurial world, we’re encouraged to dream big, create BHAGs (Big Hairy Audacious Goals), and go for it. This is the fun part, it’s fun to dream big!
Then, oh yes then. You realize that it is time to execute and make it happen. Reality hits you in the face and if you are like me, this is the moment when I start thinking can I do this? Who do I think I am? When am I going to have the time? How in the world will I be able to make this happen?
Looking at the list of things that need to be done and it is easy to get discouraged and overwhelmed.
But looking at this quote it reminds me, why not me? Looking around at the entrepreneurs I admire, they have at least one thing in common. They focused on what they could do and became the exception. If they can, why can’t I?
I need to ask myself everyday, what do I need to do today to focus on what I can do and become the exception?
