Now, it was nice to think I can persevere. Wow, it sure is another thing when rubber meets the road.
I have been working on setting up my products, studying and conducting research on my niche. With all this information one can feel very small and think, who am I among so many competitors?
Well, I am a mom who wants to go on record… I at least want to give it my best shot and I am jumping in the arena.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” ~Theodore Roosevelt
Now if failure comes my way, and it does, because there is so much I am still learning and by the time I figure something out it either cost me time, money or both.
So, by God’s grace I will keep on. Step by step. Inch by inch if necessary.
“Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.” ~Winston Churchill
So if you are just getting started or you are trying to pick up the pieces of a failed business…Keep On!
If you are successful, watch out, I am keeping my eye on you, not to beat you to the top but to learn from you and to say, “Thanks for keeping on.”
To your success,
