Human rocket fuel

While writing a speech several years ago and reflecting on my entrepreneurial endeavors I noticed something interesting… Not one of my businesses began with a cliché spurt of inspiration. They were birthed as a result of my frustrations and willingness to create a solution.

The rush of inspiration is fun, fast, and extremely powerful, but a BIG mistake too many could-be Mavericks make is waiting to be swept up by a Hollywood injection of divine inspiration. And wait they do.

Budding entrepreneurs often underestimate the power of converting feelings of desperation into fuel for new action. Not satisfied with a product, service, market void, or comment someone made about you? Do something about it.

I’ll even be so bold to say that I believe inspiration is fleeting. Desperation makes for a much better long-term fuel if you have a clear goal in mind.

But whether it be inspiration or desperation, I just hope you’ll jump on board and light the rocket. Your life – and the world – will be better for it.
