Livin’ Good Currency Ep. 19: Bill Glaser There’s an Entrepreneur Inside All of Us
The Lesson: What makes an entrepreneur? Humanity. We are all entrepreneurs. Our entire lives are a sequence of people trying to sell us ideas, opinions, values, as well as goods and services. People are always creating—ideas, opinions, and objects of value. We do it to ourselves. We have to constantly sell things to our own minds—that we are strong, capable, handsome, beautiful, or the next pastime, the next 5-year plan, the next self-reinvention.
Notable Excerpt: “Every day we get out of bed and we just have a day, and the day happens. But it’s those days where we get out of bed and we set an intention of what kind of day we want to have, that’s what we manifest. And so it’s having the practice to make that a habit, and whether that’s starting the day saying, what kind of day do I want to have, or what do I want for my business, for my relationship, all those things are intentions, but you can’t just set the intention and wait for something to happen, that’s just a wish. But if you set the intention and then you take action, that is the formula for manifesting.”
