Your business, your family, and your own personal life is what you’re going through—you can’t do it alone. If you want to be the best at what you do—to do what you do, to take a hit, or to do whatever you want—you have to take care, and you have to look at how you do it and see how you do it, and then you have to act.
I don’t want to go into all of those things. I have to think about that. I never had a life like that before. I have to think about it.
The truth is, I’m not sure where that idea comes from. I’ve always thought that my business was my life, and I never really thought about that before. But I do know that one thing that I want more than anything is to be the best at what I do so that I can take a chance at doing something different. I also know that I have to take care of myself because I have no other resources.
The truth is, the best thing you can do as a businessperson is to work really hard at the things that you like. I don’t want to sound like some old-fashioned, entitled, and self-obsessed, but the only thing that makes a businessperson successful is work. I want to be great at what I do so that I can take a chance at doing something different, so that Im able to make a difference in this world.
The problem with work is that we all know that it’s not the most important thing in life. That the money is, but we’re not really sure what it actually does. So a lot of us do what we do because we have to and because we can’t do anything else. That is a pretty stupid way to live your life. But as long as we all know that work is always going to be our salvation, we don’t need to do anything.
So here’s the thing: Work is not just money. Work is an emotional reaction of wanting to feel good about how you are doing on a job. People who do not know this about themselves, they are forced to do things that they don’t want to do and are unhappy doing it. Work is a form of social support that we get from others in our lives. A job is a job because it is the only one that is there for us.
And although I am not a fan of Work, I know some people who are. I know of couples who quit their jobs, they have jobs, but they were unhappy with them. They went back to work, they got something else, but were unhappy with that. So what Ive learned in my past is that you can’t go back to a job you are unhappy with. You can only go back to the job you enjoy.
In other words. If you want to enjoy a job, you need to not be unhappy with it. So your business can’t be a job. It needs to be something you enjoy.
So I understand that a lot of people want to go back to a job they are unhappy at, but for the majority of people, it is the job they enjoy. I mean I know Ive met some people who are really happy with their jobs, but that is rare. You can only get so far with a job you enjoy. If you dont enjoy a job, you cant go back to it. You can only go back to the job you enjoy.
We tend to be very good at being flexible (and in some cases, lazy) about our jobs. We say we wanted to be a professional musician, or we want to be a professional photographer. These are both things that we are really good at, and they are both things we would really like to do, but there are usually reasons why we choose to say no.
