The little kid inside of us...

 “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. “ -Pablo Picasso

One of the keys to becoming a great entrepreneur is having the ability see what others cannot see.  Vision is a key trait that one must have in order to succeed in life and in business.  Most of us tend to lose that vision while growing up, and it is that simple fact that makes some of us pawns in the game that we call life.

Whether we like to admit it or not, we all have a little kid inside of us.  There are times when I personally have to maintain my bearing (which happens to be most of the time) under duress and business negotiations, and according to the eyes watching me, it seems that my demeanor is as disciplined as a Marine Drill Instructor.

To tell you the truth, it is kind of hilarious and amusing to me, because deep inside.... I’m just a little kid that loves to play futbol…or “soccer ball” as they call it in the states!  I state this because of the fact that I still carry a soccer ball in the trunk of the car, just in case my business partner and I want to start juggling or play a pickup game. One of my close friends and mentors pointed that out yesterday, as he found it kind of amusing that we started juggling a soccer ball in the middle of the parking lot while waiting for someone that was 10 minutes late for a meeting.

Today’s piece of literature happens to be a little sporadic, but it may be because I’m running on about six hours of sleep in two days.   Most of my business associates can relate to this, because of the fact that we have been pretty busy with events and other ventures.  To make a long story short, every child is an artist, and it seems that my partners and I have never had the privilege to grow up.  But don’t estimate our silliness and kindness for weakness, because when the time comes….just like a light switch, we can change that little kid mind frame.

In conclusion, I personally try to discipline myself to write one of these motivational quotes every day.  Throughout the years I have had an amazing amount of feedback, and I want to thank all of you for taking the time to read these quotes.  I know there are times when these pieces make no sense at all, but there are also times when these little memoirs can have a significant impact on your life.  Hopefully, out of the millions of memoirs that this little kid of them has the ability to touch your heart!  The World Is Yours..  Vereour Nasquam!!
