Your first thought is prolly like…what? Rick’s gonna talk about chicken today?
Or maybe it’s about the whole secret recipe thing and how you have yours deep inside you too right?
It’s about perseverance.
The story of Colonel Sanders is one of not quitting because the next call…the next meeting…the very next person to step in front of you could be the ONE.
He coulda quit. He could went back to the Army. He coulda kept his first KFC inside that nasty gas station back in 1930 (true story, I looked it up).
But he stayed strong in the pursuit of his dreams.
OK…now think about it one level deeper.
== He didn’t have the support of other entrepreneurs like you do today…
== He didn’t have the internet to Google the easiest of business problems…
== And he certainly didn’t have some incredible F.REE training put together by entrepreneurs who have BEEN there…DONE that…
He had a rickety ass car and a freaking recipe for making chicken.
Let THAT sink in.
Especially for youz guyz out there who think you have it rough.
== Can’t seem to ‘find’ prospects…
== Can’t seem to get the ‘right’ people…
== Can’t seem to beat the overwhelm…
Then think about that old chicken salesman with the funny tie, no internet who lived in the boonies of Kentucky.
Shiiiiiiiiiittttttttt…..you got it way easier than any other entrepreneur in the history of entrepreneurship.
No more excuses.
Peace out for now.
