Most will not find this really pertinent to making money or startups. However it is very pertinent. Undo the “can’t do” thoughts in your head. Can’t do’s have no place in a startup.
This is an excerpt from a larger work entitled “A Day at the Zoo” by the now deceased Dr. C.S. Hyatt
Sa-Shu-Ah – by Crag Jensen
Close your eyes, relax and float down stream.
Hello – I am the man on the Radio
I am the man on your television News Channel
I am the man behind the pulpit and the man who works for the Government
I am the man whom you must believe in because I am the man whom you fear the most.
I am – alas- the man who has been planted inside your head since you were too young to even talk – to walk- to reason or question.
Yes it’s true – I am the man who never tires of telling you what to do – how to vote – what to eat – what to buy – what to believe in – where to go – when to go – and how to go.
I am the man who sits inside your head and dictates – dictates – dictates. I am therefore – and in essence – your personal – government approved & church sanctioned – dictator.
I am not you but I will be all that is left of you at the end of the day because you have long since relinquished the responsibility of being whom you really are because it is much, much, much easier to listen to and obey me – rather than to break free of me and actually accomplish something worthwhile in your – so-called life.
No Don’t waste it
Don’t be a slave to your programming – anymore
When you can open – yes you can open the door.
And Set yourself free.
And though I wish you well – only time and work will tell
Just how you will fare – true success is all too rare.
But whatever you do wherever you go – don’t forget
To keep on undoing yourself (undoing yourself, undoing yourself…)
