Weekday Wisdom, Episode 21
The Times They Are a-Changin’… and that’s a good thing. You know that, right?
Successful entrepreneurs know change happens and they embrace it because they know it’s a good thing.
Let me tell you a little story as an example. And, yes, it’s totally going to date me.
I remember a time when people listened to music on cassette tapes. And then eight-track tapes. And then CDs, which still exist but aren’t as popular. Everyone is now listening to music on MP3s.
This is change and, depending on your point of view, that change has been good or it has been bad. It really all depends. Regardless, your music is now much more mobile than it used to be. And that’s a good thing.
I also remember when there was no Internet. The rise of the Internet and online marketing and online e-commerce is an incredibly good thing. Why? Because having the ability to start your own business via the Internet empowers you to start your business with almost no money. Before, if you wanted to start a business, you had to have a business plan. You had to get a loan. Starting a business took time and money. And so, the opportunity really wasn’t there for a lot of potential entrepreneurs.
But today, anybody can start a business! It doesn’t have to cost you a lot of money. And, you can be lucrative very quickly.
Change is constant. No matter what happens, you’re going to get older. New technologies are going to develop.
Change is just going to happen. So, don’t resist it. Look for the positives in that change, because they are there. There’s opportunity in change. There’s opportunity for growth. There’s opportunity for improvement.
If you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you’ve got to embrace change. Look for what’s good in it and then take advantage of that goodness.
I hope that you have learned a little bit about how change is good for you in today’s episode. I hope you understand why you should embrace it — because it’s going to happen whether you like it or not.
Don’t box yourself in.
Spread your wings and fly.
You — yes you! — are capable of more than you know!
