Are you chasing the waves?
According to Jeff Bezos, entrepreneur and founder of Amazon.com, you shouldn’t. One of his top pieces of advice for young entrepreneurs is that “chasing the wave” never works - rather, do something you love, give it your best effort every single day, and the waves will one day come to you.
In 1849, before California became a state, there was a hype around the discovery of gold known as “The Gold Rush”. Many of our brothers from the history books left their practices to chase the wave (including well payed doctors and shop owners).
But who actually made money? James Marshall was one of the minority - Marshall bought all the shovels in town for cents, only to resell them to the gold chasers for dollars.
Friends, to chase a wave and catch it requires a strike of luck and superb probability - but to position yourself in a way for the wave to come to you only requires patience, perseverance, and passion.
Stay in your lane, add value to the world - and may the waves come through and make us all wet baby. 🌊🌊✨✨
