I was just accepted into a 10 week Entrepreneurship program called Start up Quest partly sponsored by Federal dollars and my local government in South Florida. It culminates into a completion where teams present their “Start up Business” and they are prizes for the winners. What the prizes are I am not sure but they are good. Just so you know I
have already won. I am a winner and I like to win.
Let me tell you a story. When I worked for Movado watches they had a competition one weekend. Before I knew what the competition was about I resolved I would win it.
My manager explained it to me. “Yeah, yeah! I got it.” He looked a little exasperated with me but I was too busy to worry about that. All weekend I was focused. “I have WON! I don’t know how but I have.”
I sold a engagement ring for $2o,000. My manager helped me. I told him, “You know I have won, right.” The explained the competition to me. “Yeah, yeah! I got it.”
I waited for the winners to be announced. I won! of course. He took me into his office and EXPLAINED the competition to me. Ooooh! I get it. The whole time I didn’t know what the competition was about.
All I had that weekend was the belief that I had won, even though I wasn’t sure what the competition was about.
I won anyway because I am a winner. Period!
