There are pros and cons in everything you do in life, and when the pros and cons outweigh that it is a worthy pursuit. Lucas Longmire is an entrepreneur who is an investor, forex coach, international speaker and mindset coach. He explains that being an entrepreneur is not an easy task and you have to sacrifice a lot of things to be successful.
He grew up in a small town in Brazil, Indiana, USA and was one of the top football athletes in college. He came down a dark path after an injury and couldn’t make it into the leagues. As a troublemaker in his youth, he managed to change his life. He went from a manager at Gold’s Gym to an entrepreneur who developed a forex trading app and rates. He learned that being an entrepreneur was about starting a business out of things he is passionate about in life. The downside was that there was no fixed pay and it would be difficult to survive without a stable income. The advantage is that you can work from anywhere in the world according to your schedule. It also means that your company is accountable 24/7 and there are no days off when you want to be successful. Being an entrepreneur is a double-edged sword where your success is directly proportional to your effort. You cannot afford to become complacent, lazy, or hesitant about the tasks at hand. You have to constantly adapt to the needs and requirements of your customers. You have to be self-motivated and not let anyone’s opinion hold you up.
Luc Longmire says entrepreneurs can be to help make your dreams come true. Lack of dedication, determination, determination, and focus can turn the dream into a nightmare in no time.
