I had a revelation today. Fat guys who run are a lot like entrepreneurs!
Let me explain.
I noticed a middle-aged man running this morning. He looked like he was about 40 – 50 lbs overweight. This was evident because parts of him were moving that really should not have been moving (if you know what I mean).
Amide this awkward moment, it dawned on me. He and I are a lot alike. Sure, I have a few extra pounds to lose too, but there was something else. He is obviously new to fitness and I’m new to the entrepreneur life. For this guy to lose weight he needs to stay motivated and committed daily. This applies to my entrepreneur efforts BIG TIME! And finally….good results come with time. He’s not going to lose 50 lbs over night, and I can’t expect to have a speaking / consulting opportunity every weekend right out of the gates.
It really is a combination of realistic expectations and diligent effort.
What are YOU working on right now? Do you struggle with staying motivated or unrealistic expectations? If so, you’re not alone.
