My speaking business didn’t make a dime in revenue for the first six years.
In the seventh year (which was only last year) i finally earned revenue (far exceeding any other year).
Who would wait seven years to cash their first paycheck?
Who would leave behind the security and admiration of a 30-year Disney career, risking failure?
Sure as heck wasn’t going to be me.
But the 2008-09 economic tsunami challenged me in a life-altering way.
You see, i love quotes as much (or more) than most people i’ve met.
But when i intentionally stopped doing this one thing, i changed everything.
i stopped posting quotes from famous people.
And began posting my own, original, quotes.
i came to realize that not until i took control of what i believed and was able to synthesize and architect it into an original
quote thought, then my thinking wasn’t original.
i didn’t invent quotes, but i did harness how i consumed them and then moved from being a consumer to a creator.
Consumers don’t change the world, creators do. -jeff noel (Tweet that)
