As a small business owner, I have learned that the best “road to success” is the one filled with mountains that I must climb. When you tackle a mountain, three things will occur:
- You learn to depend on God and others.
- You are allowed to celebrate the big victories.
- You grow as an individual.
You have to have faith in God and yourself to tackle the “mountains” of life. Joshua 14:12, “Do not be afraid to ask for challenges in life (mountains).”
As an entrepreneur, the way to grow in your area of expertise is by gaining knowledge regularly. Plus, stretching yourself beyond your limits. Successful business owners flourish because they are not afraid to be challenged and stretched beyond their “comfort zone”. Also, they have no problem taking on challenges that will not only benefit them, but will benefit others. We were born to be entrepreneurs and were given the desire to do something better with our lives.
God created us to be dreamers and gave us the skills, talents, and resources to make our dreams a reality.
