Mom Entrepreneurs: It's all about the attitude - get yours adjusted

Friday, July 31, 2009
My son loves to play baseball. When he is not playing baseball, he is watching the Red Sox game or reading a book about baseball. It is his passion; it is his focus. He tells me he will be a professional baseball player some day.

What are you passionate about? What is your focus?

My son is the shortest player on his Allstar baseball team. His teammates tower over him by a good two inches or more. He is not as strong as the other boys on the team. He is the underdog.

But he has the right attitude!

Every practice he arrives early for warm ups. He runs on to the field and he hustles back off. He listens to what the coach is trying to teach him. He cheers for his teammates when he is warming the bench and tells them "good job!" He practices for hours at home...batting, catching, pitching, etc. He wants to be the best.

Two days ago, my son's baseball team won the championship game in their tournament. My son...was named MVP for the season and given the game ball. His coaches commended him for many things, but most of all, his attitude.

Are you an underdog? Are you fighting against a negative cash flow, lack of work, too much competition, and other issues everyday?

Remember to believe in yourself, try your best, listen to the advice of seasoned mom entrepreneurs, practice at making your business better everyday and change your attitude. If you believe you are the best at what you do...then you will be!
