Remember that guy who gave up? Neither does anybody else.

It is easy to enter into the arena of business with a unique idea. But once you take the first step you might realize that the path to success is not as smooth as you had thought. The decision of leaving behind a regular paycheck to build something huge is a big risk in itself. The reason behind the risk includes no guarantee of success, lot of hard work and 90% chances of start-up failure. Managing a business is not a stroll in the nearby park. Every successful entrepreneur you see today have gone through various challenges. With their skills and hard work, they have overcome each hurdle they encountered through their journey.

As they do so, they give up on certain things to ensure success. Things like:

· Accept the fact that success doesn’t come overnight. So give up on all the vague ideas you have about success.

· Quit worrying about the views of other people regarding your business. You need not be perfect for your customers but you need to do what you are passionate about.

· Quit focusing on money and earning profits from the first day because often money-focus inspires short-sightedness and ends up destroying the business. Always stay in touch with your customers to understand their needs.

· Overcome your fear of change. Change is the law of nature and you can’t achieve something big if you are not willing to stand out odd amongst the crowd. Keep in mind that you can’t control the conflict, some people will be in opposition, may be due to jealousy so stay focused to overcome any conflict.

· Stop following the advice of every single person you meet. No one knows your business idea better than you. Listen to your inner voice and if you are 100% excited about the idea, just go for it.

Lower your Expectations
Do not expect to compete with other markets leaders within a few weeks or months, even if your business has huge investments. Always set realistic goals and success will definitely knock at your door.

Always believe in putting right efforts without expecting ultimate success in return.

Fake It Till You Make It
It is hard to believe but every single entrepreneur in the world fakes success. Faking success doesn’t mean that you will have to lie and show off in front of others by making stories. It simply means to think, behave and act like you have already succeeded. Fake it and you will definitely make it because the change in thinking actually makes a big difference.

Believe in Yourself
Most of the entrepreneurs go through a rough phase when they are unable to handle the pressure. However, it is their belief in themselves that helps; Always believe in yourself because you are actually stronger than you think. What if you were trying from a wrong angle till now and your next approach might give you the success you always wanted? Do you still want to give up?
