From the moment of our birth we are inducted into business- the business of how we will contribute to society. Most people wonder aimlessly throughout life going where ever the wind blows. While some sincerely search for their passion and purpose on this earth, another group at some point find their purpose and lives life fulfilling their dreams.
There are just as many definitions to success as there are people on this planet. The one common denominator is the notion of fulfillment. Fulfillment of one’s goals, vision, dreams, etc.
The internal instinct to push forward and achieve what your heart desires is inside of us all. Whether we choose to follow our instincts or not, determine the level of personal fulfillment and success. In my personal experience- I am sure many others can attest- the more you pursue your goals the universe has a way of responding to your needs. Oft-times giving you a greater reward than you ever imagined.
Business is not a difficult thing to do. Opportunities exist all around us. The question is are you simply trying to make money? Or trying to provide a service that advances society? Making money is the easiest part. It comes with the territory. The part which truly distinguishes you is the ability to become a trend setter in whatever sector you are in. The challenge is on you to figure out how to advance your respective industry.
You cannot advance an industry by thinking and doing the same as everyone else. You must be a contrarian in some regards.
There is no such thing as luck. Opportunity only exists when you take action. Don’t sit at home and wait on a mystery to fill your pockets. Instead apply yourself and the universe will respond.
