It often looks like the people we look up to had “overnight success” Smashed all their goals, have the best life and just keep growing! Becoming more and more successful.
You don’t see the struggle behind that. The fear, the risks, the sleepless nights.
Often I hear ‘Your so lucky” “I wish I could have the success you do”
It is easy to look like that after people see the publications, multiple companies, the holidays, the number 1 best selling book.
𝐁𝐮𝐭 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐝𝐢𝐝𝐧’𝐭 𝐬𝐞𝐞 𝐰𝐚𝐬:
Living on £40 a week that my dad gave me to get by.
The coming close to bankruptcy.
Sitting in my salon for days on end without seeing a single client.
Making a £12 takeaway last 2-3 days because thats all I could afford.
Having breakdowns after being let down by people.
Going back to work two days after giving birth.
Reading and listening to every single business book and podcast just to get some strength to carry on.
In the life of an entrepreneur it will always be a rollercoaster. But every struggle, fail and bump you have makes it part of your story!
Behind every company there is someone driving that business forward. Someone on a rollercoaster daily. Fall in love with that process and you fall in love with your business.
