Over the years, I've collected a lot of great sayings and philosophies to live by. And I've developed a number of my own. Years ago, I heard an executive speak to a group of young, hungry entrepreneurs and something they said stuck with me.
They talked about how they would find themselves at times not wanting to go forward or just "tired" of everything they had to do to keep their business going. They basically described the rollercoaster ride of entrepreneurship and the daily challenges that come with. They did a great sharing their experience of how this can wear on an entrepreneur and over-time make them second guess themselves or get to a point where they want to give up. And usually, this was the point right before they would find larger success.
He talked about how in those moments he would tell himself the same thing over and over. He told himself, "I will do it just one more day." And when the next day came and he felt the same pressures, he would tell himself, "I will do it just one more day."
He said he did this for years and one day he turned around and he had built a massive global company with incredible people doing hundreds of millions of dollars in business - all because he decided to do it just one more day.
How about you? When you find yourself at your hardest points or when you feel like you've just had enough or don't want to continue on - try telling yourself, "I'll do it one more day." Then get up and do it the next day and the next and so on. You'll be amazed at where you might be just a short while down the road for having adopted this philosophy.
