Billy Cox Entrepreneur Quote

21. “I have a friend who's always jumping from one opportunity or business to another. To him, the grass is always greener on another field. He's never learned that if you water and fertilize the grass on your own field, it will get greener and you'll want to stay. Sometimes the grass truly is greener somewhere else, but that's only because someone is over there taking care of it! Take care of the grass on your own field. If you're convinced you've found your field of dreams, build it! Stop looking for something better and stay focused on the opportunity at hand. If you do, eventually it will become so fresh and desirable that others will want to play on your field.” – Billy Cox
