As a young teenager, Jeff Hoffman put a large poster of a Ferrari on his bedroom wall. He dreamed of fast cars. His mother noticed the poster and said “Son, you’ll never have that.”
From that moment forward, he was on a mission to make this happen.
Then, he put a poster of a woman sitting on top of the red Ferrari. His mother replied, “you’ll never have her either.”
He never wanted a ceiling on what he was capable of.
Jeff went on to finish his engineering degree.
At his first job, Jeff was called into his bosses office. His boss said, see that car in the parking lot, he does the most for this company. He gets here first and leaves last. That’s what company dedication is all about.
Jeff felt perplexed. He thought, I’m efficient to get all my work done in 8 hours instead of 12, why should I be told this. All Jeff could think about was how he could buy two cars, leave one in the parking lot and use the other car for actual use. Jeff thought this was a clever idea to trick his boss. Later that week, Jeff resigned. More hours is not better. He’d rather be effective with his time.
From that point on, he decided to figure out how to make his own money. He also wanted to travel the globe.
Upon traveling one day, there were major flight delays due to a storm that covered half the nation. Stranded travelers waited hours in line to rebook their airline tickets. A light bulb went off. How can he solve this problem?
Jeff developed the kiosk at airports for self-check in. Soon, every airline called him to their international headquarters to evaluate the product and install it at their airports.
Jeff became the globe trotter executive.
During this time, he bought that Ferrari. Although, he decided upon black instead of red.
Become bigger than what anyone tells you. Or, if you’re a leader, parent or head of any group, recognize that you can help people think big and play bigger.
Break that glass ceiling.
Match your actions to your dreams. The universe will conspire to make it happen.
Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
