If there is one thing I will be grateful for besides God's grace since I began the whole entrepreneurship journey, it will be that it forced me to be comfortable with not knowing how I would "do it". It brought out the optimistic and adventurous side of me. I no longer try to know every turn and decision I will have to make, right from the beginning. And I have my entire livelihood staked on my being able to figure things out as I go on.
Every day I am resetting my aim. Setting it higher. Almost everyday I am facing new challenges. For once, all the inspiring stories of how the big multinationals we all want to have business dealings with (as a contractor/consultant or an employee) now look more real and a possibility for me.
When you aim high, you achieve more than people around you are used to or expects. And you set yourself up for a miracle. When you aim high, you live a more active and intellectually stimulating life. You are constantly at your wit's end and learning to identify new patterns. You are forced to be very creative and resourceful. You begin to see things in new and interesting ways. You stand out in the field you choose. And most importantly, you'll have a great story to share with your children and grand-children. They will be proud to know you didn't just mill around with the masses and took no risk. They will be proud to know you didn't fortify your comfort zone and aimed only for the achievable. You will all be proud of the path you followed.
Every day I let my mind expand and I keep shifting my aim higher; going for the big and challenging. It doesn't cost me to dream bigger than I did yesterday, especially when all the dreams are like mission impossible.
