Believe me, I know failure. I wrestled with it and lost for thirteen years in my attempt at trying to be a successful entrepreneur. It’s not easy to give up on a dream that you believe was placed in your heart, but it’s also not easy to continue walking towards that dream when you continuously fail.
There are many reasons people fail at becoming a successful entrepreneur. Money mismanagement, lack of people skills, low levels of leadership, etc. They all boil down to one thing in my opinion and that thing is…
Belief. If you don’t believe in yourself then it’s impossible to succeed. If deep down you feel like you don’t deserve to succeed or you feel like success is for other people, then you will find it difficult to inspire anyone to follow you. Watching someone beg and plead for your business isn’t inspiring at all ~ believe me, I know. I’ve been there, done that, got stuck with a thousand t-shirts no one would buy. Hardy har har.
But seriously, you have to believe in yourself. When you do, it changes everything. I couldn’t figure out why no matter what I seemed to do, no one would buy anything from me. I said all the “right” things, I made the thousands of phone calls, yet I was left with a big fat zero when it came to success. Once I started learning from someone who had enough belief for the both of us, it changed everything. I made some hard decisions, stepped out into the light, and I’ve been shining brightly ever since.
If you don’t have anyone in your life who believes in you yet, come hang out with me. I’ve got enough belief for both of us now. Sometimes you just need a change of scenery when it comes to the people you’ve been hanging out with and if that’s the case for you, please come join my epic community where we encourage each other, lift each other up, and believe in each other so that together, we can all succeed.
I believe in you friend. Even if you don’t believe in yourself yet.
