This week has been one big story after another on the new baby boy of Prince William and Kate. The idea of this wonderful baby is everywhere and so many stories are being told about how this baby is the most famous baby in the world right now.
In the world of entrepreneurs, what have I learned from watching these news bites and online pop-ups? Well, it would be so easy to say, “Wow. This baby is born into royalty; the world is made for him already.”
But then you see what each royal family member goes through. They have to uphold themselves in a respectable way that the Reality TV generation has never seen. They spend time in service to their country, from serving in the military to working for charitable causes to traveling the world. And they are always fighting for privacy from reporters and photographers.
Just like our earlier posts this week, it’s a process, a climb and they work harder than many. Almost every part of the life they live is in front of the public. They have a responsibility to the people who represent their country.
So as I think of my process and working to make my business work and working for long-term profit I should hold myself and my company to a high standard. Over the past few years I have worked to raise my standards, to put more work in and work harder each and every year to take the responsibility for my own success.
I read one comment on Facebook that really made me think. More and more I like to remember this: here in America any new born baby has the chance to grow up and become president. Well in an entrepreneur mindset; every person who is willing to put in the work can live a life of royalty if they choose to set the goals, learn in the climb, and make a step by step process to success.
So what will you change in your life to live your life like a royal?
