Rome is not built in a day. And never think that you, can too.
Stop looking at instagram posts, promising your sexy clad spouses and Lamborghinis in front of a white mansion when you start your own business. It doesn’t work that way.
Expect to fail. Again, and again. And know that you’ll run the risk of not being able to pay rent, loans or see your car repossessed. And don’t compare your life with others – especially those friends with a monthly salary.
Working on a startup is a different ballgame. Most of the time, you don’t own a business, but the business owns you. You can toil day and night and nothing happens – for months, for years.
Just because you’re good in something, doesn’t mean you’ll automagically have one flourishing business. Even the PM of Malaysia now, Mahathir confessed that his business failed to make money in it’s first 5 years. And after 12 years in business, his bakery chains are closed.
Just do what you can, and leave the rest to the universe. As some wise person said, pray like everything is in the hand of God, and work like everything is in yours.
