I have found that when you put ideas, good or bad, out there (in the universe) they seem to come back amplified. I have always believed in karma and other golden rules like treat others as you wish to be treated. I have never taken it as far as Rhonda Byrne’s “The Secret” but have found that the more you talk about something the more energy you create towards it.
Since deciding to leave the comfort of corporate America to go off on my own I have had a number of happy coincidences occur in my life. While contemplating whether or not to go to culinary school or start a restaurant I met my current business partner at a local Sunday brunch spot. Coincidence or fate?
As you can see there may be more to success than willing good things to happen. There is no substitute for sheer hard work and perseverance. The more that my partner and I talk about our business the more unique opportunities present themselves. The problem, if you can call it that, is that all of these fantastic opportunities come with deadlines. If we are going to be able to take advantage we have to move fast.
People always tell me that you can measure a man by how he performs under pressure. I believe this to be true. Based on my calculations we have 30-60 days to raise the rest of the money before a few of these happy coincidences potentially find other ways of becoming reality. So here goes, with fingers crossed, “please bring me qualified investors, please bring me qualified investors, . . . oh yeah, and a winning lottery ticket.”
