I get it, Entrepreneurship is glorified in the media and we only see the highlights on everyone’s social media posts.
No one shares the raw stuff anymore. The tough side of being an Entrepreneur. The stuff that you don’t want people to see, because it’s not glorious.
But the times you are going through right now? The hardships, the struggles to pay your bills on time, the struggles with seeing your business fail? This is the time that will make or break you. This is the time that you’ll reflect back on and say either “I’m glad I worked through it” or “I wish I would have worked harder.”
So if you’re going through a tough time right now, know that it will be okay.
One thing I did back in 2012 before my business took off, was I wrote myself a note. The note was simple and its something anyone can do.
All it said was “Dear Chris, thank you for pushing forward. For continuing to build your business throughout the good and bad times. Because of what you’ve done, you’ve positively impacted the lives of hundreds of people.” and I signed it “past Chris”
Now that’s not exactly what it said, because I don’t have it with me right now to read and write to you, but you get the idea.
The tough times never last. You will get through them. It’s just a. matter of time.
But, I’ve got faith in you. You’ve got this.
Actually, here’s a video to watch that relates directly to this:
I recorded that video in 2013, and it’s still true today.
