Something inspired me today to write this blog post….
Business owner or not, “entrepreneur” or not, married or not, young or old, if you ever find yourself doing something that you don’t enjoy immensely, or living a life you wish you were not living, or hanging out with people you don’t want to be with, please – change it. Change. Quit. Move. Stop. Whatever you need to do. Life is too short to tell yourself what your doing or where you are living “is a means to an end”. Life is too short to think it will get better later. Life is too short to think you will make more money later or make better friends later or find a better job after you get more experience.
Do what you love now. Today. Find a balance that works for you and your family. Tell them you are making a change and everyone will be ok – I promise. Find a place to live you never want to move from and find a passion that gets you excited as heck to wake up every morning. Find a balance in your life that lets you hang with your friends or your kids, be a good spouse, spend time on your craft and enjoy quality time by yourself doing whatever you love to do. You have to do it, it is a shame if you don’t.
And last, but certainly most important – ignore the hell out of everyone around you. Ignore the nay-sayers. Ignore the people who don’t understand your philosophy and your business and your values. Ignore the people who think you live a life that is not reality. Ignore the people who are jealous…and definitely ignore your competition. Always. Ignore them all – do what you love, make a difference and enjoy your life.
Life is too damn short.
