                Marcus Annaeus Seneca a man bore of wealth back in the Roman days 54 BC-ca. 39 AD. Seneca was a rhetorician and writer.  He states, “It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficulty.

Interesting quote on daring to think something is difficult.  The struggle between what we think and what we do cause people to not take risk.  Maintaining a safe-haven is not always the best answer.  Business is risky.  But, you dare to think that it is difficult and dare not to pursue the business avenue. Enabling your future limits your ideas, talents and support from others.  Peak around the corner see your future.  Are you having difficulty meeting life’s twist and turns? Dare to meet the difficulty head on.  Whether you were born into wealth or poverty dreams still come true.   Remember the cartoon Blondie and Dagwood? Could you imagine Dagwood making sure he had enough to meet the expenses of his family?  Here is a funny clip “when Blondie on a Budget (1940).

A neighbor asked Dagwood to join the Trout Club the membership was 200 dollars.  Dagwood had difficulty discussing this request with Blondie.  Blondie wanted a fur coat.  She felt it was quite unfair for Dagwood to join the Trout Club and she not receive a fur coat.  Dagwood’s old girlfriend arrives with a fur coat and Blondie became jealous.  Blondie dreamed of a fur coat.  Dagwood dreamed of joining the Trout Club.  Both had dreams that exceeded their budget. Dagwood then receives a phone call from a contest Blondie entered. The gentlemen on the phone informs Dagwood, he had won 200 dollars.  The fur coat cost 185 dollars.  

What in the world you have done?  Dagwood took the money and purchased Blondie her dream fur coat.  He forfeited his desire to fulfill his own need. Little did he know that Blondie had budgeted for the 200 dollars Dagwood needed to join the Trout Club.  By the way the Trout club was damaged and would cost 7500 dollars to repair.   Sometimes we must dare to do the thing we dare is difficult.  It may even mean placing others before us.  When we do this life has a funny way of replenishing that which was given.   Business can be cruel, challenging and difficult.  But, what adventure is not? Blondie and Dagwood had some challenging times, but they made a decision to embrace them together.  Life little challenges makes it all worth living.
