The 1 Difference Between People Who Aspire And People Who Succeed
I’ve learned only 1 thing is required in order for you to be a successful entrepreneur.
It’s not having an MBA — I know plenty of people who have become successful without going to business school (myself included).
It’s not about “knowing the right people” or having the perfect network — although that’s certainly an important part of the journey.
And it’s definitely not about having X amount of money in your bank account before you begin.
It’s about… and I’ll tell you, it’s impossible to learn this until after you’ve taken the leap (that’s the irony of the lesson).
It’s about TRUSTING YOURSELF.
All successful entrepreneurs trust themselves enough to figure things out. They trusted themselves to figure things out when they took their first leap. They trusted themselves to figure things out when the responsibilities started piling up. And they trusted themselves enough to know, no matter what obstacle presented itself, that they would find a way to the other side.
All aspiring entrepreneurs stay aspiring because of a lack of self trust.
The entrepreneurs that fail, fail because of a lack of self trust. But the ones who succeed, not just at entrepreneurship but anything in life, trust themselves enough to figure things out.
That’s the difference.
