You may wonder why I have a video of the Oprah Winfrey Show with Jim Carrey at the top of a post about farming and entrepreneurship. The reason that I did this is that today's guest, Tyler Hendrickson, said something that really made me think about this story from Jim Carrey.
If you watch the video clip you will see that Jim Carrey visualized himself as an actor long before he was successful. He then wrote a check to himself for $10 million for "acting services rendered". Ultimately what he visualized he was ultimately able to make happen.
Tyler does not yet have a farm. However, he named his diesel tuning business "Hendrickson Farms LLC". Tyler knows what he wants to do, and he has visualized it. He wants to farm, and he has chosen entrepreneurship as the pathway to achieving that. So, even though he does not have the farm yet, he has the business.....Hendrickson Farms LLC. He knows that someday in the future he will be selling crops and livestock under that name, and he has chosen entrepreneurship to make that happen.
LISTEN: Listen to everyone intently for information that will make it easier for you to succeed as you move forward.
RELATIONSHIPS: Find a way to continually be developing relationships with people as you grow. These people will help you succeed in your chosen business either by being mentors or customers.
PERSONAL HABIT THAT MAKES TYLER SUCCESSFUL:
DON'T QUIT: Tyler doesn't do this. He sees every job through to its completion, no matter what it takes to get it finished.
BEST BUSINESS ADVICE EVER GIVEN TO TYLER:
"If you shoot for the moon and fall short you will still be among the stars"...or something very close to that. Tyler's grandfather, through his words and example, showed Tyler that you need to set your goals high. That way even if you fall short you have still accomplished something significant.
