Stay lit.
It’s not easy running your own business. It’s not easy being a CEO of a big business. It’s not easy being a manager in business.
Sometimes it can get so hard you want to quit. Business slows down. Things go wrong. People problems consume your time and energy. Sometimes you just want to quit.
Don’t give up. You are where you are because you’ve the guts and brains to get through it no matter how bad it seems.
I know how hard it can get. But damn it, we’re the people that make things happen. We’re the engine running the economy. We create the jobs. We keep the food on the table.
When that light starts to dim and you feel like it’s about to go out remember that sometimes you have to trim the wick for the flame to burn bright and steady.
Wherever you place your faith, just consider that you may be getting your wick trimmed. If you stay lit, you’ll make it. You’ll come through brighter than ever.
