There is a point to this. You are holistic. Not one part business and another at home, or the gentlemen’s club etc.
My favorite show is “Dexter.” Aside from the murders we are similar. In one closing scene he marvels at all of his friends in happy relationships. Dexter says, “They make it look easy.” I have wondered the same. One woman I know has a husband that sleeps in another room. They have a marriage on paper absent passion. But … they are married.
I recall asking my former wife after a week of marriage why she didn’t have any of the passion when I did. She replied “Because I’m not 19.” Here is my point. I think perhaps why some relationships look so easy is simply because the people aim so low. They don’t admit they are miserable. Not me. I am a 19 year old in a 60 year old body mentally and physically. Every morning and every evening my heart raced like a six year old on Christmas morning. I intend to rock her world from preparing dinner, paying bills, road trips, or my pulling the last pair of laced panties from a woman’s hands in Victoria Secret’s. I’m going to keep taping “I love you” to her panties until I find the right one. Your passion isn’t suppose to die. Why am I alone?
I’m pacing myself for someone who can meet my level of passion in everything. All the time. Bam. If you are going to be an entrepreneur, be passionate.
