If you must succeed financially in this life, I’m talking of the type that last…then you must sustain energy like an ox in whatever you do.
An OX is a smelly but strong animal, mostly used by farmers.
If it gets stuck when ploughing a field, it doesn’t move back. No reverse.
It remains in that position, breathing heavily, resting until the owner comes to remove whatever obstacle it had hit.
If it’s ploughing a hilly area, it doesn’t give up easily. Instead, it will stop and rest and continue and stop and rest and continue.

We can sustain energy like an ox by not easily giving up but knowing when to pause, rest, holding off letting go of staff.
Knowing when our failures are saying STOP and learn this before you continue or you spiral down to more losses.
That’s why farming is one entrepreneurial skill you need to get.
You don’t have a farm? Don’t worry, just stay close to a farmer. If possible, invest in their farmland.
You will understand the fear and gentle patience and constant prayers for rain, sun and absence of crop-eating diseases.

Then you will wait for months and years just to harvest your crops.
So why do we suddenly expect what we just started to begin fruiting today?
Where is the lie?
Who is teaching us that we can start today and start making 10x returns without consistency over time?
Let’s give ourselves time to grow. Enough of the pressure. We will all make it financially.
