Marcus Hiles of San Antonio has built one of the most successful real estate companies in Texas.
Success in business, just like in many other areas of life, is largely a matter of personal choice. A garage that is cleaned up during a weekend, a fixed car, and a bunch of notes that are turned into a book are all results of personal decisions.
A lot of people live their lives choosing only from a narrow pool of decisions that come from other people or from situational circumstances.
For example, if you come from a really small town, your options, if you are to stay in that town, are usually limited to working at a factory or being a farmer. However, nobody is preventing you from leaving the town and finding better options elsewhere.
Many people go through life as if they are surrounded by tall wire fences, while in reality, they are free to do whatever they want in the majority of scenarios.
A lot of business owners behave in the same manner. They create businesses by doing things in certain ways and then behave as if something doesn’t allow them to change what they have started, even though the whole venture may operate the way it does only because of their personal choices in the first place.
Many of the world’s biggest companies have only been in business for a few decades. This means that today speed and determination to succeed are much more important than history, years in business or the size of the enterprise. This is why anybody with a vision, passion and determination can create a successful company from scratch just like Marcus Hiles San Antonio did.
