I know a young man named Ethan who recently graduated from high school and needed a job. He’s quite an industrious fellow – not afraid of hard work and he was willing to accept any job he was offered where he could do an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.
Within a very short time Ethan found a job working for his local Goodwill as a donation attendant. While the hours weren’t great to start with and he didn’t love the job, he showed up every day on time and did what was asked of him. It didn’t take long for Ethan to start getting better hours and now he’s looking at other positions within the company as well as outside of it.
Another young man I know, Kevin, also recently graduated high school and needed a job. Kevin, however, was concerned about his lack of work experience and skills. He lacked confidence, and he often made excuses as to why this company or that company probably wouldn’t hire him. He’s been searching for a job for several months but he hasn’t found one. In all that time he’s only been on two interviews, only applied at a handful of places, and spends much of his time playing computer games and hanging out with friends.
There’s a couple of lessons you can take away from these two guys. First, you make time for what’s most important to you. If making money from your booklet is important to you, you will make the time to write it and get it sold. No excuses.
And second, don’t shoot yourself in the foot before you start the race. So many people dream big and then talk themselves right out of their dream. They complain they don’t have the experience, the right contacts, the time to pursue it and on and on and on. Don’t let this happen to you.
Ethan had no experience but he was determined to find a job and he did. Kevin also has no experience and he’s just as good a person as Ethan is. But, Kevin doesn’t apply himself to the task. He’s too busy playing video games and complaining that nobody will hire him. He’s not giving himself a chance.
Whatever you want from your booklet adventure you can have. You might have to work for it a little harder or longer than you anticipated, but if you keep at it you’ll get there.
Don’t make excuses for yourself. Take action and do what needs to be done to make your dreams come true! You can do it if you try. You might fail a time or two, but keep going. You will learn from your failure and be stronger and wiser the next time around.
See you at the top!
