Today is Five Minute Friday Blog Challenge started by Lisa-Jo Baker. Every Friday she’s post a word then hundreds of people blog for five minutes on the topic and support each other. It is a fun way to end the week. Today’s word is Fight.
Fight – If I look at successful entrepreneurs one thing they have in common is that they fight to create a successful business. I don’t mean they fight other people. I mean they fight through all of the obstacles that get their way. They work things out and keep their eye on their target.
“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.” – Henry Ford
As business owners there are many obstacles that we face and we need to “fight” our way through them to reach our own potential. Often the biggest obstacle that we need to fight is ourselves, our own ability to focus and not get derailed or overwhelmed by doubts or roadblocks.
“Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”– Michael Jordan
What obstacles do you have to fight through in order to reach your goals and take your business to the next level? What is standing in the way of your success?
