This morning I read the following quote by Henry Ford on a blog that I follow, called the Rat Race Trap, and wanted to share:
“You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.”
This holds an important truth for all entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurs are by nature, dreamers and goal setters. Even at the far end of the spectrum, some entrepreneurs just simply don’t want to work “the Man”. On the other end, a couple of ambitious entrepreneurs might have a friendly wager to the first one to net a billion. But wherever you fall on the spectrum, the quote above holds true.
LESSON LEARNED: Set ambitious goals, live Big, and dream BIGGER, but remember there can be a vast difference between “what you are going to do” and “what you’ve done.” You’re the man Henry!
