Andy Andrews: The Traveler's Gift

Every entrepreneur undergoes a transformation of spirit while building his or her dream. Often times, we can find ourselves as lower than we could ever imagine. That is when we learn understand the humbling truths of success. 

In Andy Andrews's book The Traveler's Gift he covers the seven decisions that determine someone's success by "[weaving] a fictional tale about a man who loses his job and money, but finds his way after he is magically transported into seven key points in history," according to an excerpt from ABC News. 

Successful people make their decisions quickly and change their minds slowly. Failures make their decisions slowly and change their minds quickly.

When I read The Traveler's Gift, I found much more than a fictional tale about a man learning success principles by world renowned figures. I found an essential meaning to, and correlation of, the way we live our lives and the way we do business. 

If you're an entrepreneur or business owner, you will experience down falls. That is a given. However, our character is shown through the way we handle the darkest of times. 

Until a person takes responsibility for where he is, there is no basis for moving on. The bad news is that the past was in your hands, but the good news is that the future, my friend, is also in your hands.
