“An entrepreneur tends to bite off a little more than he can chew hoping he’ll quickly learn how to chew it.”
~ Roy Ash, Co-founder Litton Industries
A hundred years ago many of our ancestors were business owners – entrepreneurs, craftsmen, farmers, or professionals. Slowly, we began transition into a society of corporate employees. By the 1980s, Wal-Mart was putting the final nail in the coffin of main street small businesses and we became largely a corporate culture.
Then the Internet was born and there was a resurgence in entrepreneurship. That trend found new meaning as the world sunk into a global depression in 2008. Today more and more people are connecting with their entrepreneurial roots and realizing that their future and their financial security relies on their own efforts. Fewer and fewer people are willing to put their fates in the hands of institutions, including corporations.
We won’t see the end of cube farms any time soon, but everyday more people are waking up to the power within them to control their own destiny.
These affirmations are for the people who get up every day, bite off more than they can chew, and make it work.
