It’s been over 15 years since I began my entrepreneurial journey.
And while I’ve had some unbelievably rough times, I don’t think I’d trade any of them for anything.
Personally I don’t think there’s more an exhilarating feeling then when you can produce income for yourself and be solely responsible for it.
Nothing gives you more confidence. Nothing gives you more pride. It’s just how I feel and I’m sticking with it.
Which is to say that if you have the courage to bet on yourself, it’ll be the best investment you can ever make.
On the flip side, if you bet on yourself and have zero confidence, it’s going to be a problem.
But even then, you fight through it, take the licks and recognize the power you have created for yourself.
And by the way, I’m not saying being an entrepreneur is for everyone.
What’s more important is knowing yourself and the place you have in this world.
When you can knock that down and lean into it as much as possible, opportunities are endless.
So whether it’s working for you, someone else, anything, if that gamble you are taking is on you, even if you fail, you can’t lose.
The failures create lessons and the wins create fuel to keep going and pushing yourself.
