I am fortunate enough to interview high level entrepreneurs on a weekly basis and learn valuable lessons from them that propelled their lives into not just monetary prowess, but a wisdom that is unavailable from a collegiate standpoint. I had the pleasure of speaking one on one with an individual that amassed nearly 2 million followers on Facebook and spoke on topics ranging from entrepreneurship to religion to monetizing your own personality. It was within this conversation that one slight tip popped up that I will never forget.
This tip is the 48-hour rule.
The idea is simple. We are bred to plot and plan and wait to strike at the perfect moment rather than just doing. The 48 hours collectively are the time period for your reactive state. If the idea is still lingering in your head even after 48 hours, immediate action is required on it.
Waiting will kill your dreams. There has never, in the history of the world, been someone that garnishes success just by sitting back and thinking about ideas. It is all about execution and your willingness to execute. Often, I see discouragement comes into play from others because it is unreasonable or unfathomable so it sways you from pursuing it. This isn’t just about possible entrepreneurial ventures or business as a whole, but can be anything pertinent in your life. Starting that blog you’ve always wanted, learning about photography, pursuing your art, or even just wanting to go to the gym. If you never act on your impulse or your thought, you will be stuck in limbo and become dissatisfied at what you did not do.
I part with this; You personally can create and become an amazing version of yourself, but it requires time, energy, and a willingness to perfect your craft. Whatever that may be or how far from reality it may seem to be, you can accomplish it. And even if you fail, that’s just one thing that led you to something even better. Have a great Friday and an even better weekend!
