Do you have a dream? Do you want to create a new mom inspired baby product? Write a book? record a song, start your Etsy business? Whatever that dream may be I've learned the single most important ingredient to making that dream a reality is never ever QUIT. Sometimes you may have to adjust that dream but don't every give up.
I say this not just to you, but myself. Remember I told you that I'm making a new baby product? Well in the midst of that you hear words that sometimes make you want to just shrink down the side of a wall. Words like:
And through it all you just want to say "HOLY MOLEY I'm just making a product to help moms like me why does it have to be so hard?
Well I have talked myself out of many of my prior dreams because as I started to walk through the steps I let the big picture overwhelm me and then I was exhausted. It's like the old saying "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time?" I would never eat an elephant BTW it's just a saying that you focus on what is right in front of you first.
I should already know this concept better than anyone the first time I tried to sing my own mother sunk in her chair because I was so awful. But later I went on to tour all over the world and perform for Chuck Schwab, Alice Cooper, Larry the Cable Guy and more. So I know hard work will take you where you need to go.
I'll be adding articles as part of a series I think they'll all be dream related so if you like this post you can find them by searching for that.
OH! and I am revealing for the first time today the image associated with my product this is what I designed with my artist please tell me what you think by commenting below! Thanks you guys are awesome!
No matter what please don't listen when someone says you can't and if you need a reminder here are a few of my most favorite things to inspire us not to quit.
"So we went to Atari and said, 'Hey, we've got this amazing thing, even built with some of your parts, and what do you think about funding us? Or we'll give it to you. We just want to do it. Pay our salary, we'll come work for you.' And they said, 'No.' So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said, 'Hey, we don't need you. You haven't got through college yet.'" Apple Computer Inc. founder Steve Jobs on attempts to get Atari and H-P interested in his and Steve Wozniak's personal computer.
