Last Lecture

The entrepreneurial journey is indeed a "Hero's Journey". I appreciate how this course was designed to have the book by Jeff Sandefer and Reverend Robert Sirico be the capstone of this course experience. This book like the course take you through a discovery process of the key elements that you will need in order to start your own hero's journey. Robert D Hales said "To find gifts we have been given, we must pray and fast...I urge you each to discover your gifts and to seek after those that will bring direction to your life's work and that will further the work of heaven." This course has taught me to infuse the gospel of Christ into my entrepreneurial journey. Starting a business with the focus of using our God given talents to make people's lives better and prosper financial in order to be able to have the financial means to further the work of the Lord is an approach that will not be taught in any other business school.
I have realized the extent in which this journey will continually provide me with different types of trials. This course has provided me with lots of examples of how to preserver and endure those trials by being prepared for them. One of our biggest challenges will be to seek the path of self mastery. Elder Tanner stated "There are two important elements in self-mastery. The first is to determine your course or set the sails, so to speak, of moral standards; the other is the willpower, or the wind in the sails carrying one forward, As I said before, character is determined by the extent to which we can master ourselves toward good ends." By diligently working through the inspired assignments in this course you will be able to think ahead and set moral guidelines to keep you on the correct path.
I have learned just as much about business from the General Authorities of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as I did from the business books and readings. On spiritual notion to keep in mind as you decided to start down a path towards mastery is that there is one out there that doesn't want you to succeed. He has made it his mission to cause you to fail. "Brigham Young also said, "We never began to build [any] temple without the bells of hell beginning to ring"" Don't let him succeed, this course will help you learn how to slay your dragons.
