I haven’t posted anything motivational in a while, so I thought I’d share this video below from Steve Harvey.
I found this really inspiring, and I like how he kept it down to earth. For instance, in the video he says it’s not just about trying to be a big singer or something like that.
Instead, whether it’s baking pies, cutting grass, or something similarly simple, we have to find our passion. And we have to jump at some point.
I will say as an addendum to what he’s said — and as someone who has jumped and “scraped my knees,” as Steve Harvey terms it — that you could (and should) take many measures to avoid this pain prior to jumping.
For instance, you could (and should) stay at your job until you’ve saved enough money that you have a massive safety cushion. (I’d say a minimum of six months living expenses.)
You should also start your dream part-time while keeping your job, if at all possible. Grow slow, as those who are experienced say. (Most failures happen because we’re impatient and try to speed things up, so we borrow more or take foolish risks.)
Finally, you should also avoid re-inventing the wheel. Study other businesses and examples that have succeeded and failed. What did they do right? What did they do wrong? And obviously, you should do this prior to making your own attempt. (Remember, be patient.)
Keep the faith,
