The business was very important to me because I had never finished anything in my life. Not to sound arrogant but, I have always been good at everything I have ever tried out- well, except signing but let’s move on. It was always fun and exciting when I started something but, soon afterwards when I needed to put in a little more effort I would quit.
Fortunately or unfortunately depending if you are a half full or half empty kind of person this is my personality. I love to start new things. I am passionate. I am aggressive at the beginning. I get things done quickly. I am determined and all that good stuff. This I believe are very strong points. However, I am not a finisher. I am not patient. I am not a long-term goal oriented individual.
I decided to use this project as a tool to build up my weaknesses. A failure in this venture would directly reflect a failure on myself as an individual. There was no way I was going to admit to myself that I have failed. Especially, if the failure was caused by factors that I could control. This mentality helped me motivate myself to see the project through.
I believe ignorance at times is a blessing in disguise. If I had know then that my proclamation was the start of this uphill and winding journey I honestly would never have started.
My advice at this juncture: get to know yourself objectively and honestly.
Know yourself as who you are now and not who you would like to be.
