Do you remember when you were a kid and thought that you could be anything you wanted to be?
An astronaut? A Fireman? A Doctor?
I wanted to be Mary Tyler Moore, or “That Girl.” Both of my idols were young, single, happy women who lived and worked in the “big city.” So what did I do when I graduated from college?
I took my young, single self to Manhattan and began my career.
But, like so many others, I lost my ability to dream, or create a new goal for myself. Life got in the way. There were jobs to do. Errands to run. Bills to pay. It wasn’t until my life completely blew up that I was jolted awake.
What the heck was I doing? Where did I want to end up?
I wanted to be an ENTREPRENEUR. I wanted to CHANGE THE WORLD.
When I forget that I can change the world, I watch this video.
Entrepreneurs can be anyone… including YOU.
Seize the opportunity to create the job you’ve always wanted.
Help heal the economy.
Make a difference.
But, most importantly, remember when you were a kid,
When everything was within your reach…
Then say to yourself, quietly, with DETERMINATION,
IT STILL IS.
