When you stop nurturing the plant (your career) it will die. When you think you know enough, you will cease to exist.
Over the past couple of weeks, I have been bombarded with invitations to attend industry events from the NAACP Image Awards, AAFCA and now the Grammy’s and the Oscars. I am in no way bragging in this moment about my importance, I am simply grateful. Grateful that after 30 years I am busier now than I have ever been, business is great and I’m still growing, doing, learning, moving and being. At the end of last year, I made a decision to clean house and to only spend time with people who were bold in their approach to life and business and were making moves, creating and being IN the race instead of being silent on the sidelines and it was the best decision I ever made. I am that person (in the race) but for a long time I stopped being him when I did the opposite, surrounding myself with people who were not growing, complaining all the time, negative and always making excuses and not willing to do the work in order to succeed. (I still help those in need but in a different way).
I was asked to be in a small group of other successful entrepreneurs to meet once a month and to help each other and I’m amazed at the results not only for my business but for me as a person. I don’t want to make this about me but about you, but I will use myself and my experiences to get my point across if you don’t mind.
I have worked very hard for what I have and there is no greater blessing than when others can see the value in what you do especially when you run your own company. It’s not about you being a star, having tenure and DESERVING recognition. In this industry what you have DONE……… is not as important or as relevant as to what you are DOING, which is where a lot of people make the mistake, it’s about you CURRENTLY being of service to others and an inspiration.
