Okay, stay with me on this one, I haven’t gone completely mad – yet. I was watching Bee Movie earlier, mostly because my deaf kitten loves watching anything with bright colours, and one of the quotes hit me. Although it is about bees, it can be transferred to running a business. (And reaching for any goal, in fact.)

We Can Learn a Lot From Bees

“According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don’t care what humans think is impossible.”

Now do you see where I’m going with this? How many times have you been told, “you can’t do that, it’ll never work”? For me,unfortunately, it’s been a lot. And I used to believe it. Like any child, I had so many ideas of what I wanted to do when I grew up, but these dreams were often crushed before I even had the chance to attempt to pursue them.

But why should we listen to these negative people? Who are they to say what we can and can’t do? Let’s go back to the bee quote. It’s a well known fact that bees shouldn’t be able to fly, but they defy all odds and do it anyway. We should do the same. Don’t be afraid to set big goals, or dream big dreams, just because some people might think they’re unrealistic. If you want something enough, you should go for it.

I’ve reached the point where I no longer listen to anyone who doubts me. I work for me and I decide what can be achieved.

If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If not, you'll find an excuse. Click To Tweet
