So I was watching TV tonight (not something that I really do to often), I was watching Shark Tank. This guy was on there trying to get the people on the show to invest in his company, in which he sells cargo racks for trucks that fold down to be hidden. Anyhow this guy inspired this post, because he proudly makes his cargo racks in the USA, and the people on Shark Tank where very persistent that he should look to over seas to have his product produced. He refused and very strongly stood by his beliefs, and I think that was one of the main reasons they would not give him any money. I liked this guy because he stayed true to what he believed in, even though he could have easily gone against what he believed and taken the easy way out.
I think everyone at some point in their life have to make a decision whether they should stick to what they believe in, or they can give in, and be just like everybody else, take the easy way out.
My friend is who is in the process of going to nursing school right now, has lately been trying to stay true to herself, and trying her best not to just fall along with everyone else. Over the past year she has really struggled with her health and has been able to dramatically turn her health around. Because of this she has gained a lot of knowledge that could help a lot of people and will truly make her a way better nurse because of it. Anyhow what she is struggling with is hard to explain and would probably end up insulting some people, so I do not really want to get into it but the point is no mater how impossible it may seem you can stay true to yourself.
I have had many people tell me I am crazy for not selling my vegetables that I have picked earlier in the week at my Saturday market, but I refuse to do so. I believe in selling vegetables that are as fresh as they possibly can be. I tell everyone at my market that I pick all my vegetables fresh the day before the market and if I tell someone that, I do not intend to lie to them. Yes if I were to sell my week old produce I could make a lot more money, but that is not why I do what I do. I grow and sell my vegetables because it is something that I love to do and providing people with the best fresh produce I possibly can is part of what I love to do. I think the people who are truly the best at what they do are the way they are because they have a great deal of pride in what they do, and are also proud of why they do it. So keep that in mind, take pride in what you do and how you do it, and stay true to who you are and what you believe in, and you will be a better person because of it.
I do not know anything about these racks but, I liked this guy's way of thinking so much that I figured that I would post a link to his site: http://www.invisarack.com/ Just in case anyone is looking for a cargo rack made right here in USA.
Just a little inspirational post for everyone:)
