Being an entrepreneur is no easy task of course. That’s why we are here with #DYE posts/articles, and videos.
I recall a voice telling me “Be patient”.
As I drifted off to figure out why I was told that, it hit me. Like many entrepreneurs, I had been a bit impatient, especially when certain tasks did not amount to the results I envisioned or expected. Then it all began to make sense.
Certainly, patience is a virtue needed to be a successful entrepreneur.
When you water your pet plant or actual farm crops, they don’t sprout immediately; if they did, you would take them for granted and not water them on some days. But it’s the mere moments of running to the farm to nurture and water your crop, in measuring how far they’ve grown since the day you planted them that matter (our Agricultural Science teachers in high school always made us do this). It’s the hope behind every activity you do on the farm that brings that success when harvesting season comes around.
Again, if your crops grew the day you planted them, you wouldn’t see any value for them. Likewise, if your business took off the day you started it, you would take it for granted…all of it! And that includes you too. You would take yourself for granted because you won’t ever need to reason much, to do much, to fight much, to oppose much.
Everything would happen as you wish and in the long term, you will not feel like you did much to deserve anything.
