Key Idea: If I don't do this, my life will be incomplete.
We all have had to take that Flying Leap. For most of us, it is not easy. If you have worked for long within the security of a job, it is gut wrenching. Watch this video. In the first 12-seconds when you only hear the music, answer the question, "Why do I want to do this?" If it is just to make a lot of money, you have a lot of work to do. Money's motivation can not sustain a business in its infancy. There's got to be more.
PS. The people who left those shoes behind are not falling, they are flying... they are taking the flying leap of faith that they can do it, they can start-run-and-grow a good business, and that they can be a force for good in this world. By the way, if your roots are in the USA, there is a deep entrepreneurial spirit in your blood. More... Go to the opening words.
Think about it
In the USA alone, what is the aggregate effect of 25 million small businesses? What lessons are learned by over 90% of the workforce when their first work experience are usually part time jobs in small businesses (most often retail and the restaurant sectors)?
Clip from: At some time we all reached the same conclusion:
"If I don't do this my life will be incomplete. "
The last impression before each episode ends is to provide an abiding hope for the future.
