Building a successful business from the ground up is a marathon, not a sprint.
If you are paving your own way, it can take some time to start reaching your financial goals.
It’s so important to keep this in mind so you don’t get discouraged (I need to keep this in mind too!)
It’s way too easy to get discouraged that you’re not making six figures yet when you see people online reach seemingly overnight success in their businesses.
Don’t believe the hype…you’re seeing online what people *choose* to show you.
More often than not, there are months and even years of “failure” and disappointment behind every success story…even the ones that seemed to happen overnight.
Even some of the most successful businesses in the world took years before they actually became successful.
One of my favourite business success stories is Amazon…it took 4 years of operation before they even made any profit at all.
In fact, they actually *lost* money for their first few years.
Imagine how many people told Jeff Bezos that he would fail…that he should just drop his idea because it wasn’t going to amount to anything.
Imagine how many naysayers he had to deal with in those 4 years, and how resilient a person must be to just ignore all of those voices (including ones in his head I’m sure!) and push on to success.
I just wanted to send some positivity out to anyone who is having doubts about whether or not they can have a business that will ever be successful.
Be patient…your time is coming. Ignore any naysayers. Do your best. Ask for help when you need it. Take a break when you need it. Set small goals and crush them. Set bigger goals and crush them too.
Keep pushing on to success.
