If you seek glory, you are looking for the wrong thing. Especially in startup.
It’s not in the glory of victory that you find yourself. It’s the times of darkness. It’s through the trials and on that last mile where you build your character and become who you are.
That’s why I love the times of hardness. Because I know only greatness is to come. And sure, the glory will be there, but I am more proud of the times I endured, I pushed through. The hardest times make the best times worth it.
That’s why I love pushing my team to our limit. Because if we don’t stretch our minds and attitudes, greatness is not possible.
And in those “dark” times, those times of preparation before the triumph, you have to believe. Believe that the triumph is to come. Know that the harder the times now, the more the success to come. And the great times always come. Believe and trust. Push through.
It’s believing in balance, and it’s believing in rainbows.
I believe in balance and rainbows, and that belief has gotten me through the toughest of times. I’ve emerged a butterfly many a time, and plan on continuing a beautiful rebirth of awesome time and time again.
It is for balance between awesome and hard work that thankful. Cherish the hardest parts of life.
