Power Thought: Everything is resurrection

Grimm Voltaire quote - screen shotIt is not more surprising to be born twice than once; everything in nature is resurrection.
~ Voltaire

What this quote means for business:
Last week I was watching Grimm, one of the many supernatural TV shows I follow, and it opened with this quote. As I let the words sink in, I realized that this held a message not only for my own business but, more than likely, yours, as well.

Most of the entrepreneurs I know are serial entrepreneurs. They create a business, it succeeds … or not, and they create another one. In many ways, we are in a recurring state of reinvention and resurrection.

There are two ways you can look at this:

  1. You can focus on the failures and be frustrated with the constant change, dog-paddling and struggle of the entrepreneurial life … or
  2. You can focus on the amazing flexibility, creativity and tenacity the cycle of reinvention and resurrection brings to life.

Not everyone can handle being an entrepreneur. We are a special breed. We have strengths that others don’t have. (And, yes, the converse is true, as well.)

But if you have chosen the entrepreneurial path, wouldn’t perceiving the world the second way just make life better? Wouldn’t it bring you more joy?

If “everything in nature is resurrection” as Voltaire says, then, perhaps, this reinvention cycle is a natural expression of the entrepreneurial mindset.

Embrace your path. Enjoy the journey. Entertain the possibilities.
