The universe rewards persistence. Yesterday I wrote about the disappointment of losing, but I ended by telling you we won’t quit. That’s the key – if you ever put a qualifier on the conditions in which you’ll quit then you’ll never do anything big.
Things will go wrong. That much is inevitable. But you don’t get to feel sorry for yourself too long.
Today the director of the competition approached us to inform my partner and I that the judges got into a heated debate about whether or not to put us in the top three. They all believe fully that we will succeed, but again, the other businesses were already established.
The universe smiled down on us for trying to make something of nothing – that’s the definition of a visionary. The judges decided to “sneak” us into the next round. Two weeks from now we will give a brief pitch to the angel investors.
Ask and you shall receive. Put it in the air that you’ll never give up – don’t leave room for quitting – that’s the way to win. Give yourself a chance to do something only you can do, something that’s never been done before.
