There is nothing known as lightening success. Many people look at others and say ‘they became successful overnight by selling their business or an app’. But, no one wants to see the hard work behind it. People get into prestigious colleges but others do not see the sleepless nights and determination behind it. So, go after your goals and there is nothing known as short cut to success.
Believe someone else has answers for you
No one has the perfect answers for your life. Only you know what is right. People will have opinion for you and they will try and decide for you. But, you have to make decision for yourself and own them. Follow your gut feeling and make your decisions. Don’t let other people control you.
Decide to settle down when the growth is guaranteed
This is one of the most suicidal things for your dreams. You are happy, running a successful business and now you want to settle down, especially when the growth is guaranteed. When you are already at a peak, look to conquer other peaks with more grit and determination as growth is determined. Work harder for yourself
Believe the fault is someone else's
Oh! We all have these excuses that markets are not right, there is a slowdown, people don’t want to listen, et al. Don’t dump the blame on others. It is your product and it is your responsibility to make it happen. If no one bought your idea, it is, of course, your fault. Be responsible for your dreams.
Believe that only things that matter are dreams itself
Life is all about the journey, enjoy it. Of course, achieving your goals, dreams is magical and it gives you immense happiness. But, enjoy every step of your journey as goals will be achieved once and you will embark on a new journey. Journeys are a learning experience and to be enjoyed.
