Will You Go Make A Difference?

Life requires making lemonades from lemons, doesn't it? Or lime soda water from limes. We simply must take whatever happens and turn it into good.

That's true in business, too. Our objective as a small business owner is to help people. Helping people takes effort over time.

Lift people up

My intent in helping people is to use what I know to lift people up economically. Lifting other small business owners will lift their customers and over time will lift me. I know because I've done this before.

I have skills. I have experience. And so do you!

In fact, I've got an entrepreneurial success track record. And you have other experiences too. That's helpful.

Because my background includes success in teaching, I can impart what I know. I can help people. I can help live as well as by using the printed word. So, as part of that I continue to share and learn. And so can you!

Play

When we learn, we can play. When you play, you can become successful.

No matter our level, there's a spot for us to learn and to grow as an entrepreneur.

Change is a process rather than an event.

Flat

My chance to restart my life continues as does yours. Our circumstances change and how we can help people changes. Right now that includes recovering from injury.

Changing our life takes some doing. Our effort over time gets rewarded, initially with momentum, and as momentum continues, so does our growth.

Despite all

I find am feeling contentment and joy. I find myself a bit surprised at that. Delighted too;)

I want to make a difference in the world. I know I can do that by helping people. As a small business owner, I recognize that helping people is what business is all about. And I'm willing to do whatever it takes, including effort over time.

We all have unique talents to contribute. One of mine is teaching.

What are yours?

Learning

As long as we're learning, we're on the right path! In fact, I'm counting on that now! I believe I will succeed again - and that I have succeeded in getting over a lot of big stuff already. I want to help in ways that transform lives by teaching how to package our abilities as small business owners for the people who need our help.

Believe

Like a butterfly strengthening new wings I am growing as a leader and small business owner.

Life is adventure. How are you doing on your life journey? How's your adventure today?

Great article Cynthia! There's so many ways to help people that are looking for answers to their problems. I also believe that the businesses that succeed are the ones that are willing to put the extra effort into helping and uplifting people. Glad to hear you're recovering and keep up the good work! Best wishes! :)

Thank you! I appreciate hearing from you. You're right - there certainly are so many ways to help people who are already looking for answers to their problems, problems we ourselves may have poked around and turned inside out already in order to work out a solution.

Rock on Cynthia, lemons are thrown our way everyday if they are directed at me or someone else their are no shortages of lemons.....I must agree it is really what you do with them that counts....I used to stress over them and complain...even to go as far as to blame others for my misfortune.....looking back at that behavior I can see now how destructive it can be, and was....the old saying if I knew then what I know now...?...changes they happen some for the good some not.....happiness is in ones own self not the expectations of others....if it floats your boat that's cool....teaching very cool.....building cool.....medicine good stuff.....doctors hospitals, 2012 better than 1812...:)....our own spirit in the face of personal challenges, experience tells me keep them high because getting down makes most things worst.....(easier said then done) but life is a constant challenge and is evolving day by day, minute by minute....the past never returns it is just remembered....onward is the only way....I am very glad you have good people around you....bonus.....hang in their baby you have folks that care...:) Tim

Thank you, Tim. You're right, it is what we do with them that counts. I'm doing the best I can to get through this. It's very painful physically. I find best thing is to forgive... and figure out what needs to change.
