When I first shared this video four years ago it was at four million views. Today it's coming up on eight million. Still, I'm betting many of you haven't seen it. In just over a minute it brings together one famous personality after another, reminding us:
"If you haven't failed, you haven't lived."
The same thing seems to happen every year as we go into the fourth quarter, photographers get reflective. Business often picks up to an unreasonable pace, and at the same time things are good, they're not always in the direction you hoped for when you started. I love the way this video puts it all in perspective and reminds us to simply never give up!
The last frame says: "Life = Risk" and it reminds me of the challenges we all take every day as business owners. I've quoted this old proverb before:
"Smooth seas don't make skilled sailors!"
Between technology, the economy, consumer trends and each of our own personal fears, we're all sailing through the perfect storm every day. It's time for us all to soar!
