Not The Destination But The Journey

Written by Jim henderson

We remember inventors, explorers, and entrepreneurs by their successes instead of by their persistence inrepparttar face of uncertainty. The common elements that unite these groups is their willingness to take calculated risks andrepparttar 124047 perseverance to persist in spite of seeming failure. None of them went into any endeavor withrepparttar 124048 intent to fail but neither was success guaranteed. They knewrepparttar 124049 risks and were not deterred, ultimately they succeeded one more time than they failed. In our haste to obtain success can we afford to overlookrepparttar 124050 process that brought it about.

Today, we attempt to isolate ourselves from risk as much as possible while looking with distrust toward those who are willing to leaverepparttar 124051 refuge of certitude for an uncertain reward. Fromrepparttar 124052 vantage point ofrepparttar 124053 past tense, we conveniently forget that those who altered our history, left their impact on industry, and shaped our culture did not foreknowrepparttar 124054 outcome of their actions.

Would history remember men like Marco Polo, Columbus, or Lewis and Clark if they had not dared to venture intorepparttar 124055 unknown. Whether pilgrim or pioneer, it was unnamed common people who risked everything

The Entrepreneurs Prayer

Written by Rick Beneteau

As I awaken withrepparttar gift of yet another day and prepare forrepparttar 124046 tasks at hand, I offer up this most ardent prayer:

I pray for continued clarity of purpose so that I may hold my vision steady and keep my focus onrepparttar 124047 needs and success of others, which in turn shall bring me my success.

I pray forrepparttar 124048 wisdom to expect abundance in my life, that it surrounds me and is available forrepparttar 124049 taking and to be shameless and unapologetic upon its receipt, for I deserve abundance.

I pray for a cheerful countenance, be it clear or cloudy skies and that I may radiate and infect others with my positive attitude.

I pray forrepparttar 124050 trust of others that they may recognize my sincerity and true intentions so that we may move forward together.

I pray forrepparttar 124051 strength to fend off adversity and use my desire and determination as both weapon and shield.

I pray forrepparttar 124052 courage to carry forth my convictions duringrepparttar 124053 battle of business and to resist temptation to a quicker monetary result when such temptation compromises these things for which I stand.

I pray that I may be used as a lightning rod to collectrepparttar 124054 amazing ideas already present inrepparttar 124055 universe and when blessed with such inspiration, that I may be able to apply my talents and abilities to turnrepparttar 124056 power of thought into measurable advancement of my goals.
