There are No Guarantees

Follow Your DreamAre you thinking of starting a gift basket business?  How about adding a new product line to your existing business? Or stepping out and starting something that is entirely new and different?

Fear of failure is one of the biggest reasons that people don’t act on their ideas and dreams and why they put them off until tomorrow.

But let me tell you something.  There is no guarantee that tomorrow will come. If you don’t do it today, you may never have the opportunity to do tomorrow.

If you didn’t read my post about what I’ve learned in 74 years of living,  you missed item #19 which said

I’ve learned to live every day as if it were my last.  
To appreciate what I have and to harbor no regrets.

Right now, I’m stepping out into a whole new direction with a product that I’ve had private labeled for me by a company that I respect – Homespun Naturals.  I’m not going to talk about the product here but I’m going to answer a question that I’ve been asked before:  Why would you want to work at your age (in case you haven’t guessed from the title of the post that I referenced above, that age is 74 as of September 14th)?

The video below explains it well.  Watch it if you’re looking for a bit of inspiration, are discouraged at how your business is doing or just afraid of following that dream!  Then leave a comment and tell me what you think.

  1. Thank you Joyce, this is just what I need right now. I will need lots of replays of this one, to keep reminding me to Take Action and to never give up.

  2. This video is speaking to me, lol.

    Thanks Joyce for the inspiration and happy belated birthday!

  3. Excellent motivational video. Resourcefulness and hard work caused my business to grow through the years, with very little money but I never gave up. It is going great now, yet it’s a passion and I still work hard at it every day because I want to. Never give up.
    Happy Birthday to you!

  4. Failure is not an option….but if failure is forward movement, bring it!
