WARRIOR OF DISCIPLINE
Being an entrepreneur can often feel like a life or death situation. You make feel awkward, uncomfortable and nervous. Believe it or not, these are all strengths. To stay on top you need to stay hungry. You need to feel worried your life will sink, because if you become complacent someone else will come along and take over the space. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you don’t have to be the first out of the gate. Just because you aren’t the first person to do something doesn’t mean you have any less of a chance of success.
