“Wherever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision.” -Peter F. Drucker
I love that quote. It’s true. Creating a successful business requires a courageous decision.
But after you make that first exciting, courageous decision… you’ve got to keep making the decision every single day to move forward and succeed.
I’ve got a sticky note on my bulletin board that reads:
Decide every day to do what it takes to succeed!!
It’s something you’ve got to keep at. Successful businesses don’t happen overnight. They don’t build themselves. It takes work. Commitment.
Some days it takes sheer willpower. Some days you drop one of the balls you’re juggling, and have to pick it back up. Fall seven times, stand up eight. Fall 1,000 times, get back up 1,001 and keep fighting.
Take it one day, one decision at a time. Push through the challenges. Then we can cheer together on the other side, celebrating the strength we’ve found within.
There is no impossible. You can achieve what you set your heart and mind to. So don’t listen to the doubters and the nay sayers. Don’t listen to the voices that want to hold you back.
Be petrified and say yes anyway.
Go make a courageous decision.
And then do it again tomorrow.
Because it’s worth it.
So what’s your courageous decision for today?
