I have known my entire life that I want to be on my own path to success. I’ve wanted to be on my own journey of entrepreneurship. I have always known that I don’t want to spend my time helping someone else achieve their goals. I don’t want to help a random stranger get rich; I want to get rich, and help other people I care about in my field to get rich with me.
It’s been nice to know that I want this for myself for my entire life. The only problem? I have no idea what to do to actually accomplish this feat.
I suppose that this is the reason life is worth experiencing: we never know what is coming our way. The mystery and uncertainty of it all provides excitement.
I’ve come to terms with the fact that I have no clue how to become successful. I have stopped seeing that as a weakness, and am trying to embrace it as a portion of life that is actually enjoyable.
That doesn’t mean I have given up on becoming a successful entrepreneur (or side-hustler or business owner or founder or whatever you prefer). The mystery has kindled my desire to work a little more each day.
Here’s why this needs to be done
I am starting a journey of self-experimentation, trial and error, and hopefully long-term growth. There are so many experts and “life gurus” out there to tell you what to do to become successful (ex. Tim Ferris, Tony Robbins, any podcast known to man, etc.), but how many of them have gone through what I am experiencing?
I am writing this as a person that has not yet arrived. I am not a finished product, nor have I ever made a finished product. I have worked for 5 years to brainstorm million-dollar ideas for companies, and instead I have accrued skills, talents, and knowledge that have yet to translate to monetary or societal success. And that’s okay with me.
Come and join me, friends!
If you are at the starting point of your path to what your success may be, follow along with me. I am going to put myself through experiments and document my learning weekly so that people like me can take action.
It’s awesome when someone with 30 years of experience gives you advice about your career, but you have to remember: they haven’t been in your spot for 30 years.
