    Ever heard this quote before?

    Ever tried to figure out the real reason most people don't achieve their goalsโ€ฆ

    You often hear people say:

    "Oh, oh, I want to get rich..."
    "I want to be successful and have 5 cars and 3 holiday homes..."
    "I want to build a conglomerate"

    But I don't often hear people talk aboutย the axeย they're using to get there.

    It's like this. They tell people they want to chop down a tree. They have an axe that they're using to do it. But they just keep hitting at the tree and never inspect how sharp their axe is...

    Even if it's completely blunt, they keep hitting and hitting.
    It's ridiculous!

    That's why Abraham Lincoln said what he said.

    ๐—ฆ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ฌ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—”๐˜…๐—ฒ ๐—™๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐˜ - ๐—–๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ฝ ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ง๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ ๐—ฆ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฑ...

    You could be the strongest person in the world, but if your axe is dull - the tree won't fall.

    Listen to me,ย you could be the most determined, hard working, smart, creative, brilliant person in the universe, but if you don't have any good entrepreneurial skills in building a business - it won't be sustained.

    It's really that simple.


    Apart from investing in yourself, and learning from a mentorโ€ฆ

    I've found one of the fastest ways to sharpen your axe is by surrounding yourself with like-minded people.

    Remember the Proverbs of King Solomon saying that "He who walks with the wise grows wise..."

    ...people that are sharpening their axes too.

    That's the best thing to do. Because when you're with people that are sharpening their axes all day, it's kind of hard NOT to sharpen your axe too.

    It just feels natural.

    Where do you find these people?

    As a growing Chemical Engineer, I've found that the best platform for this career path is AIChE Engage. Apart from connecting with various AIChE members and their chemical engineering communities, it is a platform to share chemical engineering concepts with students and graduates worldwide. Now how cool is that!

    (This is such a powerful secret.)

    Even if you don't regularly use the platform, you can build some very powerful connections and improve your skills fast.
