Being an entrepreneur is never easy.
Many entrepreneurs start out with little or no financial backing, and a chorus of “supporters” telling them not to leave the security of their job.
Entrepreneurs learn a great deal about rejection, and discover more than they want to about their fears.
Truthfully, there’s nobody else to do the hard stuff.
New entrepreneurs have no extra money to do anything fun, and if they did, they’re too tired to do it!
As entrepreneurs grow, they realize the importance of delegation.
Yet, they struggle with this because they tell themselves, “Nobody can do it as good, or as quick as I can!”
As new businesses begin to gain traction, an entrepreneur’s desire is not to relish turning the corner, but instead to push the down the accelerator, and work even harder.
When entrepreneurs finally take time off “away from work” – they spend it reading business books, and love every minute!
As entrepreneurs begin to achieve success, they realize that asking for help is a sign of strength and determination to reach their goal, not weakness.
Highly successful entrepreneurs also begin to accept that risk, and speed of implementation, are not to be feared, but instead hold the answer to leapfrogging to the top.
A small percentage of entrepreneurs experience the first type of entrepreneurial freedom, financial freedom.
For the truly fortunate, financial freedom ushers time freedom.
Time freedom is the ability to live life on your terms.
Time freedom is not only a huge reward for years and years of sacrifice and hard work, it’s also when some entrepreneurs turn their thinking inward.
They switch from all waking thoughts about achieving success, to a living a life of significance, legacy – and then next journey begins.
No matter where you are, start your journey and never give up.
