When we set goals in life, we imagine that we’ll reach them and feel content. But the mark (or curse?) of a great entrepreneur is a constant hunger for more.
If your eyes get wide just thinking about it, you’re not alone. As humans we’re wired to think in a linear fashion, so the idea of compounding is difficult – if not impossible – for us to wrap our heads around. But it’s such a vital component of success, in direct sales and in many other aspects of life. The good news is, you don’t have to fully understand compounding to trust that it exists and harness its power to meet your goals.
What I’m doing now is as far away from what I thought I would be doing as you could get. I was a science major who became a teacher who worked on websites who was a stay at home mom. I’ve done a lot of different things and at no point did I really want to be the head of a global company. If you ever asked me the probability of doing that, I’d have said almost zero. But dreams change and paths change and life changes. And what got me here is, as cheesy as it is to say this: a calling. There’s no other way to say it. And it inspired me then and it has continued to inspire me.
