We all want to see how ideas soar. We all want to implement our ideas and make our business the best one around. We all want to be successful. We all want to see our own products on other people’s shelves. We all want to accomplish our goals.
We all want all of those things. The list goes on and on. However, most people don’t get those things. We all want those things, but only a few people get them. The reason we all want those things is because they are hard to achieve. Everyone wants to make it in the top colleges because not everyone gets to make it in college. I see more business people saying they graduated from Stanford, Harvard, Yale, and all of the other Ivy League schools.
Most people don’t get those things because of fear. There are many people who fear failure, and that’s why there are so many inspirational quotes about conquering the fear of failure. I tweet inspirational quotes 4 times every day, and when I look around for good inspirational quotes, a lot of the inspirational quotes I read are about conquering fear.
These people fear their potential. That may be the last thing people fear about, but it is true. People do fear their potential. The reason people fear their potential is because we like the constants; the things that remain the same. In order to make your business grow and become a very successful entrepreneur, you have to be willing to take the leap.
When frogs leap from lily pad to lily pad, there’s a risk that the frog misses the lily pad and falls into the water. However, if the frog stays on the same lily pad, it won’t be able to survive. The frog will have to look for insects to eat and water to drink (the water will be easier for the frog to find).
If you’re business isn’t doing as well as you hoped, or you know there is more potential, it’s time for you to leap to the other lily pad. Even if you fall into the water, you’ll be able to swim out and go for the same lily pad again. With persistence, you will eventually take the leap and land on that lily pad.
