Growth is possible for you, but it would require all you’ve got. Everyone of the big companies that we know today (Walmart, Costco, Apple, Bank of America, etc) were all created out of someone’s imagination. The founders of each company had the idea and made the decision to jump.
You see, there are billion dollars ideas, product, book, invention hiding in your mind. As a fact, this ideas have been there for the past few years, but you just haven’t gotten the courage needed to start. The funny thing is that you could end up spending the rest of your life living a low level life. A life of quiet desperation! A life of always wishing but never taking the necessary steps needed to start on your goal. Yes, you don’t have the money needed to start. Yes, you don’t have all the right skills. Yes, yes and yes you don’t have all the right connections. However, none of those have nots could ever prevent you from starting your idea. The person with money might only come along your way when he sees that you’re constantly knocking and looking for ways to make your dreams come through. After making the jump to get pass your excuses and start working on your goal, you could actually learn the necessary skills that you need to make your idea happen. You could learn to code, sell, market a product, build a website, build an app and every other countless things – if you really want it badly and are willing to commit to the process. We live in the digital age where you don’t have to attend a four year university to learn how to build a website or create an app. You can simply google “how to build a website in 24 hours” and you will get literally thousands of results on how to go about doing that or you can find someone else to build it for you pro-bono. The choice is yours! Alibaba.com founder Jack Ma couldn’t code a single line yet, despite that lack, he managed to start a web empire that is now worth billions of dollars. He couldn’t even speak perfect english. Yet, he decided to jump and started to knock on doors to find ways to execute is dream. Now he lives the way he wants, spends his time the way he sees fit.
At the end of the day, we were all created for greatness and we can all be great. What’s needed from us is the boldness to make that jump and start looking for ways to make things happen. This website and the JumpFailGrow brand is one of my way of jumping into my hustle. What would become of this idea in a year? We shall see! I would have written 30 plus articles, interviewed at least 10 people for the podcast, redesign the website to make it fit my vision, find ways to connect with my mentors, offer a workshop both online and in person on how to make the strategic jump and start looking for ways to make your dreams become reality.
What would it take for you to start today? What do you think are the things holding you back from starting? Given your current situation and skills sets, what do you think you can do today to start? It could be as simple as coming up with a unique business name, researching to make sure that the website URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is available. You can even go further by researching companies that are currently doing the same thing that you have in mind. You can see how they’re running their business and see if there are certain things that they should be doing – that they’re not doing. That little step could provide you with a way to differentiate your company and idea from everyone else. None of the steps listed above will cost you money. They would only cost you time. You can start today. It won’t cost you much, but that simple decision could change the rest of your life. Don’t wait till tomorrow. Tomorrow is a day that’s not guaranteed. Today is the only day that you have control over.
