What Am I Doing
Posted on January 19 2016
I ask myself that everyday I wake up. I look at my business and sometimes I am defeated by it. Why do I continue to pursue it? I haven't made anything close to a profit yet. I've heard feedback from a handful of customers. My grades at school are suffering. The time I spend with my family is dwindling. I feel like I have wasted years of work that could have been better invested into something else. What am I doing?
I don't know. I don't know what I am doing. All I know is I want to influence the world in the best positive manner that I can. I want to help my brothers and sisters that are tormented by PTSD on a daily basis. I want to provide a positive atmosphere where they can share their stories free from criticism and full of support. I want the community to come together and be apart of a solution that isn't profit driven.
Everyday I ask myself why in the hell do I still continue to pursue this vision. And then I remember the changing of the vest ceremony I attended at the Austin Dog Alliance. I remember talking to the veteran receiving the dog. I remember him saying that this dog has already saved his life in the few days they have spent together. And that is it. That is what I am doing. I am trying to save a life.
Then everything makes sense. The sacrifice, the time and the energy are instantly paid off. If I can help facilitate an avenue in which one life is saved, then it was all worth it.
Drive on my friends.
