A friend once told me a very inspirational quote:
“The man who moves a mountain does so one pebble at a time.” – Confucian Proverb
I’ve tried to remember this as I’ve grown my brand and my businesses. Anyone that knows me knows that I started on the bottom; my best friends and I made hats in my house in Hollis, Queens. I personally traveled across the US to cities like Philly and Detroit with icons like LL Cool J and RUN D.M.C., and sold my own products piece by piece. Those were my pebbles, and I’m still moving my mountain.
It is often difficult to see the greater significance in the mundane tasks, but it is within these tasks that you will find the ability move your own mountain. What pebbles are you moving today?
