We are on day four of inspiring entrepreneurs that dared to ACT on their dreams. Previously I told you that dreams are actually ideas and ideas have power to transform your life.
This certainly was the case with May Kay Ash, the phenomenal founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics. When you begin to act as the leader of your life, you no longer complain about problems, you rather find solutions.
When Mary Kay Ash was overlooked for a promotion on her sales job, she didn't complain, she made a courageous decision. Ash decided to retire and write a book to help other women in business succeed. The book became the blueprint for what is now a multi-billion dollar company.
The savvy business woman took a $5000 investment and started her company. In the midst of starting the company her husband died, but Ash was committed to her business succeeding. Her son joined her in the business, and the business began to grow. Mary Kay Cosmetics boast having more than 1.7 million consultants worldwide and wholesale volume in excess of 2.2 billion.
What can we learn from this business titan about acting on our dreams?
1. When we are met with disappointment, you can always make a choice for change.
2. While pursuing your dreams you may be faced with life tragedies, you have to remain
3. You must have faith in your self to make courageous decisions.
What decisions do you need to make to lead the life you love?
My good friend Dr. Vernet Joseph always says "When you dare to dream, your dream will dare you to live a phenomenal life."
