ABC’s 20/20 highlighted what is happening in the new economy in their documentaries on Winning. I am seeing the leveling of the playing field daily in the business coaching we do with entrepreneurs and sales professionals. Anyone who is willing to fail can win in this economy. The barriers to go make something happen are so low. Be sure to watch the documentary and note the attitude of the young people and their journey to success.
Everything in our system worked against them. People told them they couldn’t. For some, their products lacked any value to others. They had to overcome their own lack of belief at times. They all worked very hard and persevered, several through financial obstacles.
It is always the same story. The funny thing about celebrity worship in our country is that they all take the unconventional path. They are willing to fail and still do. “I would be failing if I weren’t trying,” said one successful entrepreneur. It is who they are. The onlookers who are enamored by what they have achieved could do the same thing. However, two things keep them as observers and not players:
- Hard Work
I rarely run across a person who has both. If you do, we should talk.
