Life is not peaches and cream every day, so from time to time life is going to get tough. Personally I believe that is the universe’s way to give us a chance to show what we are made of? So whenever you are facing a challenge, you need to trust that it is in your best interest to face it head on. Have faith that it is within your ability to handle it. Even though you might not have the answer and that is Okay. It is a challenge so; therefore, it is meant for you to figure it out as you go along.
When I started my computer company, the first big deal I sold. I had no money to buy the inventory for the project, and I did not know how to go about doing that project. None the less, I close the deal first. I took all my money including my mortgage to fund the project, I hired sub contractor with the skill to do the job. Come to think of it, I risked my mortgage for deals quite a few times in the beginning in order to get my start.
The great explorer Christopher Columbus; not only did he discover America. Moreover, he also proved the rounded shape of the earth. Christopher Columbus must have faced a lot of challenge and done a lot of figure it out as he was going along.
The world famous Bill Gate who got his big starts because he sold Dos; a product that he did not even have. He had to figure out how he was going get his hands on Dos, so he can fill the biggest order of his life.
These people set off to do things that they have no idea how it is going to be. All they know is the end result they seek. I knew I wanted my business to take off. I have decided to do this computer business and failure was not an option. Christopher Columbus wants to prove that the world is rounded. At the time the longest trip was 30 days in the ocean; his trip would have to be much longer than that. He just got started and figures it out as he goes. Bill Gate knew he wanted that deal with IBM, so he closes the deal first. Then he worries about filling the order.
So, I guess when the going gets tough the tough get going… That is how you will find out “What you are made off?”
