Yeah, I didn’t make them either. I have realized that I make many of the same ones year after year.
If you have that dream… desire… discontent with your career or job (or lack of one) – all I can suggest is that you try. Give it a shot.
Although – as Yoda said “Do or Do Not. There is no Try.”
That is very true. But I believe that to start off, you have to consider it a try. I mean, why not? Throw your hat over the fence. Then you have to go and get it, and try doing what you’ve always thought and dreamed about.
I have a friend – a brilliant artist – who decided to try selling some of her artwork (see it here). Why not? It is great art. Friends love it. So she posted a web site / blog about it. Minimum cost and effort. Easy enough – why not? Might as well try. Won’t hurt anything. She started selling art through an online store, cafepress. Again, easy to try, low risk.
Now for the new-year exciting part. She is going to throw her hat. It’s time to DO. Renting out space in an art gallery. More risk – sure – but much more gains!
Entrepreneurs, in general, do not see failure as a possible outcome. Of course we know there will be problems and hurdles. We know it is going to be tough, many hours working and marketing, headaches, sleepless nights – but we have no doubt that we can make it work.
Do or Do Not. There is no Try.
And best of luck to my friend Shelley – we are all behind you 100%!
