“What do you really want?” was a question asked to me by Doug Champan, owner of Hyperfit in Ann Arobor, MI on Monday night.
I answered in all ‘the right’ ways, expect for the fact that I wasn’t really being honest with myself. I do want to get back to the games, and I do want to grow Coca, but WHY….i mean REALLY WHY? Is it the glitz and glam or a deep rooted desire. And if it’s a deep rooted desire, am I really ready to bunker in and do work?
I really had to reflect on this whole conversation not only the entire time we were out, but for the few days now following. I DO really want to work hard and create something from nothing. That’s what being an entrepreneur is all about, creating something from nothing. There are days I don’t want to put in the hours, but I do, why, because I have a vision, and I’m the only one that can create it. (with the help of others of course) but at the end of the day, it’s my drive and passion that others are thriving off to get to where we’re going.
From a competitive side I’ve been saying I want to get back to the games, which is a true statement, but can I really control that? NO! I can however control what I do day in day out, moment to moment and do all I can do. Everything else in the fate of faith. And not the god has a master plan faith, but the faith that all the hard work and effort I put in today will pay off in the end and I’ll end up where I’m supposed to be.
So my goal is no longer to get some where, but to truly enjoy and embrace the process and path of getting there. Control what I can control and have faith that what is supposed to happen will. Bring it Doug….because its on! (oh, and thank you for the kick in the ass)
