I’ve been waking up the last couple weeks with soul stirring, but mind calming revelations. I woke up this morning with a revelation that I hope will help steer me right through the rest of 2019 and life. The revelation? I mostly think and operate like a worker. On the surface there is nothing wrong with that, but here’s the issue. I won’t be an effective leader, brand builder or business owner with a workers mentality or operation.
Somewhere on this blog I said I gave up pursing being an Entrepreneur. After I said that, I started looking for work and was writing for other sites and doing interviews for other brands and happy to accept positions alongside others who are in control. Externally, there is nothing wrong with that at all. It’s nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about. The internal problem with that is I still felt the empty voids. The lack of notoriety for my work. The lack of needed compensation to take care of home. The unfulfilled career path and my pursuit of happiness. I’m working, but I feel empty. That empty feeling let me know it’s time for me to adopt a new mentality and take control.
I don’t like that I’m not 100% in control of my destiny. I don’t like that I have to depend on payment from someone vs getting my own and making sure it’s more than enough. If I don’t like it, I have to do something about it. So, today, I am officially making it a point to shake my “worker mentality”. It’s time to be a boss. It’s time to cultivate, lead, take control and take charge of the the path to the life that I desire. It’s time to hustle and not depend on anyone to give me what they feel I’m worth. It’s also time for me to focus 100% on everything I created. I should be spending 100% of my time building my dreams, not spending 50% or more of my time, building someone else’s.
A new challenge. A new chance at discipline and growth. I’m here for that.
