A Cheerful Word

Remember when you were a kid, everyone was always cheering you on.

In baseball, coach said I was most likely to improve. Although that was him telling me I suck in a nice way, it was still a Cheerful word to an 8 year old.

In school my teachers confirmed I could be a lawyer.

At home, my mom confirmed I would be an amazing sales person.  It seemed like everyone in the family knew.  In a nice way, they would tell me I can sell ice to an Eskimo.  As a teenager, I embraced that and sold candy to my friends at school.

And it was no coincidence that when I started at Cornell, I was studying to be a lawyer (what my teachers predicted).  Then I changed to a business major (what my parents predicted).

But where’s the coach now?  Where’s the teacher?  Where is Mom and Dad?

Who’s cheering us on?

They are on to the next child, they are worried about their own present problems, and too busy to cheer on a grown adult.

As an entrepreneur, someone needs to be speaking into your life;  a mentor, a business coach, a fellow entrepreneur.

For me, God is where I get my love, acceptance and value.  I love to read God’s promises to me in the bible.

Worry weighs us down; a cheerful word picks us up.

Your Entrepreneur Compass,
