I do believe it should comfort you to know, Patricia, that whenever you face a fork in the road of life, no matter which path you choose, I’ll be there in all my glory.

How can I believe in me?
Remember when you were a kid?
And your parents.
Maybe your mother, maybe your dad?
Would read you a book before you went to sleep?
It was usually some kind of fairy tale.
And those books.
They didn’t always end well, didn’t they?
In fact, some of them were down-right scary.
It reminds me of the people who love The Wizard of Oz.
To this day, I cannot watch that move!
Scared the HELL out of me as a kid!
I’m pretty sure I was the only kid in the neighborhood who didn’t like that movie!!!
I was more of a ‘March of the Wooden Soldiers’ kind of kid.
And even that movie was scary.
A short, but meaningful blog today.
Today’s blog is not about Fairy Tales.
It is about your journey to success.
Appreciating the steps along the way.
If you’ve been reading my blogs over the years.
You will know.
I’ve written several blogs about this subject.
You can’t really understand the process.
Until you are actually ‘in it’,

Me, always look perpetually tired.
“Dreamers always win!”
Today I’m sharing an old Fairy Tale.
That I am sure.
Many of you may remember.
I don’t know about you.
But during this quarantine.
I have been putting my time to good use!
I have been spending.
A great deal of time.
Going through old files and notebooks.
That I’ve collected over the years.
I have discovered some really great stuff.
I know remember why I save stuff.
I found documents.
From as far back as 2010.
I think it’s great therapy.
To go through your old files.
As long as you.
Don’t decide to live ‘back then’.
As entrepreneurs, we tend to collect ‘stuff.’
STUFF, we collect.
Then never read again.
We are usually too busy collecting.
Today’s Fairy Tale is Aesop’s Fable:
“The Goose and the Golden Egg!”
The story of a poor farmer.
Who one day finds a glittering gold egg.
In his goose’s nest.
He finds another egg.
Becomes very wealthy.
However, over time.
He grows greedy.
And one day.
Kills the goose.
To get all the eggs at once.
Only to find.
The goose empty.
The moral of the story:
Like the foolish farmer in the fable:
We often emphasize short-term results.
At the expense of long-term gains.👈👈👈
So the next time.
You are thinking of taking a short cut.
Giving up all together.
Take a step back and remember.
It’s a daily process.
Don’t be like the farmer in the story.
And think you are going to take the fast track.
And end up defeated.
Be in it for the long haul.
If it was easy, everyone would do it!
That is so TRUE!
Everyone would do it.
Because it’s hard.
Because it takes work.
A lot of work.
And a creative mind.
I see so many people online.
Being like, ‘Oh, I’m going to make $10,000.00/month in six months’.
Success always comes down to you.
So, do you know where you want to go?
What you want to achieve?
You need to keep the end in mind.
You just don’t necessarily.
Need to know ‘how’ you are going to get there?
Just that you will!
That’s my personal philosophy.
I know my end game.
Just not sure ‘how’ it’s going to come about?
I’m pitching balls.
And knocking on doors!
You can’t go wrong!
You never know where life is going to take you!
Have you heard?
I’m writing a book.
Titled: “How One Landscaping Bill Changed Everything!”
Anticipated release date: Spring/Summer 2022!
I cannot wait for you guys to read it!
