In continuing on with my book study of TD Jake's book, Soar! Build Your Vision from the Ground Up, the focus is on enjoying the peaks and valleys of the process of building your brand and your business. On page 32, Jakes says, "many people have a vision to become entrepreneurs, but are unable to commit to the demands of building a business from scratch." In other words, we want success yesterday, right? Yet, that's not how creating anything worthwhile happens. I think all of us should know that by now. Nothing amazing happens overnight. Nothing. We're not going to lose 30 pounds in one month (not in a healthy way at least), we're going to learn to become fluent in another language in six months, and we're not going to build a thriving business in three days. It won't happen. There is a process, which are formulas for success in any endeavor if and when we're willing to go through to get through. "The reality is you can't be committed to the dream and attain it. You have to committed to the process of putting your dream into practice" (Jakes, p 32). In other words if we want to be the boss, we have to count up the costs and be ready to take responsibility and accountability for everything that happens. No pain, no gain. Who's ready to soar? Are you? Commitment involves a bumpy ride. I know that from experience. Entrepreneurship is not for the fly-by-night person. I can tell you that, right now. Yet the rewards are amazing. Already I have been blessed by the people who tell me how In Sharon's Heart is helping to encourage them. That makes the grind worth it.
So, yes you can make it, in doing what lives in your heart. And yes, you can make it if you don't going through the process even though it's sometimes inconvenient. You can make it, because as Jakes says (p 32), the process builds your stamina, your insight, and most importantly, your relationships, which are the lifeblood of any business." "And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply" (Genesis 1:28). You will make it.
