I was spending the summer with my family in Silicon Valley, the place for start-ups and venture capital.

I even get a chance to have dinner with a professor at Stanford Business School who specializes in teaching people how to start up and be a venture capitalist.

Building a business from scratch sounds daunting for many people but we all know it can be a super rewarding pursuit.

One thing that we see in venture capitalists is,

⚡ They pour their whole hearts and life into this idea that they believe in.

⚡ They work countless hours.

⚡ They take countless risks.

⚡ They are not worried about failing.

In fact, screwing up is probably “𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘢𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘺” in their CV and credentials.

And there is a business term to that, they are “𝗜𝗡𝗩𝗘𝗦𝗧𝗘𝗗” in their idea and business. And then slowly, they accumulate partners, employees, and investors, and make other people “𝗜𝗡𝗩𝗘𝗦𝗧” in them too.

It makes me ponder, what if we see OURSELVES as a business?

Are we INVESTED in ourselves as these venture capitalists are invested in their companies?

And like a start-up, we start with nothing. We go from scratch.

It can be an idea or a goal that we are working on.

We put ourselves in “𝘪𝘯𝘤𝘶𝘣𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯”.

Then we take small steps and be willing to take risks (it’s part of the game!)

We attend to our own improvements day by day,

And slowly, over time we accumulate health, better relationships, career, wealth, and living a more fulfilled life. 😊

Treat your life as seriously as you might treat an idea for a business.

Pour yourself into it, 𝗙𝗨𝗟𝗟𝗬. ✨
