To be or not to be
In the opening line from one of Shakespeare's masterpieces, Hamlet is questioning his actions and looking into the eyes of a skull. It is in that moment he says the famous words "To be, or not to be. That is the question".
To this day, there are many people who still argue as to what Hamlet is referring. Is he referring to suicide? Is he referring to revenge? Is he referring to taking action in his life?
In my own personal opinion, Hamlet is deciding WHO he wants to become.
It is a question we are all familiar with. It is a question we have asked ourselves many times in the past. Some do every day. And if you don't know the answer, then what do you do with your time on earth, right?
I'll tell you what most people do - they wait. They wait for the perfect opportunity. The perfect timing. The defining moment that says "HERE! THIS IS WHO YOU ARE. THIS WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO DO. AND THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT".
But, guess what? That doesn't happen. So, a person will continue to age. They will continue to meander down the mediocre path. They will continue to wait. And when that magical moment never happens, the person will be able to blame their unhappiness on "I guess it was not meant to be".
NEWSFLASH FOR EVERYONE OUT THERE -
There is no perfect anything in this world. There is only what you have, what you are willing to settle for, and what you are willing to give / give up in order to get what you want. That is all.
As an entrepreneur, I have a voice egging me on every day saying "Mike, you are very close. Keep going. Don't look back. IT HAS TO BE. IT'S MEANT TO BE."
My question to you is this: When you wake up in the morning, what type of person are you? Are you an "IT'S MEANT TO BE" type of person or are you an "IT MIGHT NOT BE" type of person? Some wait for things to happen. Others MAKE it happen.
Since DreamStarters University helps entrepreneurs write books and teaches them how to use it as a marketing tool, it's no surprise that our clients are cut from the same cloth as I am. We are entrepreneurs. We make things happen. We know what we want. And we know who we want to become.
As an entrepreneur, it's your job to pick up your pen and show them all who you want to become. Write well. Write now. Edit often. Most importantly, remember that it's meant to be.
