Through the years, I’ve found there are few self fulfilling prophecies that don’t come true. It’s an honor thing, if you believe something your sub-conscious is bound to fulfill what you believe.
The definition of success is believing in what you will become.
When my youngest daughter started thinking along the lines of running her own business a few years ago, she was talking about something simple and easy to DO from an action perspective. She didn’t want anything “mental” or driving, just a simple “job” kind of business that would fill up her days with joy and love. Of course, Tatia has always been a hands on kind of child. No surprises there.
A few weeks ago, Tatia and her husband Kevin started chattering about operating their own business and I listened to their business plan. Surprisingly enough for two “wet-behind-the-ears” teeny boppers, they had a good solid plan. Tatia would be using her skills, Kevin would be using his, and together, they’d be making enough profit to sustain them, grow a future, and plan for happy lives, all while still working at their current respective positions. With years of successful business strategizing and planning in my own history, it was fun watching them come up with details, and helping them to focus their interests on the aspect of their business that would bring them not only profits, but personal satisfaction.
What a wonderful young couple they’ve become! Not only do they work together to overcome family issues and face their future as a loving and capable team, but they’ve begun to understand the concept that not everyone who talks pretty words toward them is focused on their best interests. I have to smile, remembering the heights they’ve had to climb over the past year, since their marriage.
To the happy couple, who made it past the first year, triumphantly with jubilation, I just want to say, “Keep your eye on the goals before you and be sure you’re both working toward the same goal.”
Now that you believe you can – you will!
