Selected Life Lesson
It’s not that you’re incapable … just unwilling.
-Courtney H’s Life Lesson from the Olathe, Kansas
While Courtney’s lesson is a harsh one, it is true from start to finish. I went to upstate New York last weekend with some friends for some much needed rest-and-relaxation and on the way back, we got into a conversation about generational differences.
One of the things I said was that the last two generations have the appearance of expecting results. Where that comes from, I’m not quite sure. I actually pitched a business idea about a year ago and was rejected saying, “This reeks of millennialism.” But what the idea really did in my opinion was push the company forward. In the end, both parties parted happy.
I took my idea elsewhere and they continued down the same path.
That’s my point. I’m currently pushing myself to be capable of going after my dreams, rather than waiting for the results to come into existence. It is time to be willing to pay the price, bear the burden and take the fall for what you want. Be willing.
