Corollary #1: Comparison is the thief of joy
You may have big lofty goals to be the unicorn🦄 or to be the next Facebook, Tesla, or Google for your industry…
Well, you should have those.
✅ If you’re truly solving an important problem in the marketplace.
✅ You’re adding value and you know that your product solves that problem.
✅ You know how to service your customers.
✅ You know that your customers are getting tremendous value out of the service that you’re providing to them.
🔥Then, absolutely! Create those big, hairy, audacious goals.
Create a vision and execute on your mission.
🚀Go for it!
👊 Even if you don’t get there in the time that you expect, it’s important to remember that you took nothing – an idea that you conjured up in your mind, you saw a problem, and you tell yourself that somebody ought to fix that problem.
⛰️So whether you have 2, 20, or 200 customers ➜ you are doing 20k or 200k in revenue ➜ 2 or 20 million in revenue — wherever you are in that journey, don’t worry about what other people are doing.
Take a moment and just say, “Wow, look what we’ve done. We’ve started with nothing and we’re at this place,” and be #happy with that.
Don’t look around and say, “I should’ve beat that person,” or “I should’ve been faster,” or “What if this, what if that,”.
🥳Just tell yourself, be happy.
Lesson from the trail.
