Vision Of The Black Sheep

Are You The Black Sheep?

Ever since I was a young boy, I always had the vision of being a Major League Baseball player. You know growing up as Dominican-American, baseball was in my DNA. Back when I was striving to be a professional baseball player, I’ll admit there was a lack of work ethic, and I was a hot head, but my vision was so powerful, there was no way I wanted to give up. Some of my family members had doubt that I was going to make it, and didn’t really believe in me. I always thought of myself as someone that was going to be really great out of my whole family. But of course, there was going to be a couple of hurdles I was going to have to make. Knowing that I was already great and never giving up on your vision no matter what it is. The vision of the black sheep is having a vision greater than yourself so ask yourself, are you the black sheep?

Bigger Than You!

It is beyond difficult to be one of the very few in your family with a vision that is greater than yourself. But, the beauty behind it is, no one but you has achieved a high level of greatness, and you’re the one who believes, who can do it. Have you ever imagined yourself in your dream car, dream house, dream anything? Instead of thinking “realistically,” think of yourself as someone who can achieve their dream car and dream house. I took ownership of my vision and really just went full-time entrepreneur as my job and lifestyle. I didn’t care what was in my way because I knew what I wanted and what I wanted was bigger than myself.

Put in the work!

If you have the vision, then you got to put in the work! It doesn’t matter how you do it, it’s just putting in the work. Many entrepreneurs think of work as a negative term because they have to use energy to do a simple task. Well, you are here reading this article, and I’m telling you to PUT IN THE WORK! You don’t have connections, then find them at networking events. You can’t be a black sheep with a vision if you don’t put in the work. Don’t think about it, just do because I GUARANTEE you that the more you put in work, the more rewards you get out. Be the black sheep and own that vision!
