If you’re like me, you set very big goals for yourself. I’ve set goals so big that I don’t know how I will be able to accomplish them. When I focus too much on the how of achieving something, I tend to get overwhelmed and stop trying to reach these objectives altogether. When I focus on the why I want to accomplish them, I am more energized and motivated to keep going. And as I keep going, the how I’m looking for seems to magically appear. I think it’s important for many of us to accept that building our empires will take a long time, probably longer than what we expected. It will also cost us more than we initially thought. Even with this fact in mind, the tenacity that we maintain toward achieving our dreams is the investment necessary to purchase the vision we hope for. When people give up, that’s usually a sign that they didn’t have enough faith capital to make the transaction. Faith capital has nothing to do with money and everything to do with your stubborn belief that what you seek after passionately long enough, is yours to obtain.
