“Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.” Maya Angelou This quote has 3 lessons for entrepreneurs. These lessons are:
- Take control of your destiny
- Prioritize relationships
- Know your place in the universe
Take control of your destiny
It is important to remember that your life belongs to you. There is one person who should be in control of your life and destiny. That person is you, period. All too often we give other people control of our lives – spouses, children, co-workers, and others. Even though we have obligations to others that cannot be ignored, we must control our own lives.
All relationships are not equal. In order to be happy and successful in life, we must learn to prioritize relationships. Not everyone is entitled to equal time and access in your life. Some people deserve 8 hours a day of your time and attention. Other people deserve no more than one hour per month. You must learn to give each relationship in your life its proper priority. Failure to properly prioritize leads to stress, dissatisfaction, and being over-burdened.
