Never Stop Fighting!

January 25th, 2010 | 2 Comments |

Question: Does it ever feel like no matter what you do, everything seems to be trying to pull you or keep you doing the same thing everyone else is doing? At times do you feel like the herd is calling you, begging you to come back and trying everything in its power to make sure you do come back? Eventually, most do. Everyday for me…and every time I think of what my life would be like should I choose to submit, I just want to start “mooooing.” That’s the role I would play.

I read a quote the other day that would motivate anyone with a true entrepreneur spirit:

“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle any human being can fight; and never
stop fighting.”  – E.E. Cummings

Just by being an entrepreneur, you are at war. This isn’t a violent war or a war that is even noticed by most, but is in the here and the now. It’s imminent and you are the Brigadier General. Your thoughts, your ambitions, your individuality, your goals and everything you desire in life is the “cause” you are fighting for.

It’s seems that every corner I turn, there’s a loved one, a stranger or a friend encouraging me to fit back into the mold of what the world has taught them to be normal. My life isn’t in alignment with theirs and it’s difficult for them to understand why. It’s not their fault. That’s just the way they were taught, and they accepted that. I didn’t. I’ve never been the guy who wants to hang out with the crowd or do what everyone else is doing. It never got me excited. I always did my own thing, no matter what, and was I always successful in that? No….but at least it was my idea, my choice.

For those of you who love the popular “mold,” none of this may make any sense to you.

Life is way too short to waste it wishing instead of just doing. It takes guts. It takes ambition….but is so dang rewarding. It’s liberating, exciting and extremely fulfilling to know that you have your own compass and are charting your own course by doing something that nobody else on the planet has done.

So yes, in order to do just this, it’s a constant battle against all that is common and normally accepted. To be the best YOU possible, you must declare war, make your strategy and then…..STRIKE!! I’m with you and support you. Don’t wait. Timing is everything….and the time is NOW!
