If you’re not proud of your business, if you’re not proud of the people that you helped, if you’re not proud of the things that you do on a daily basis with your business, then you’re not going to be successful. Your business will fail.
Hungry entrepreneurs deserve help, but too many entrepreneurs start businesses, where they’re not really proud of what they’re doing. They’re not waking up happy with themselves. If you’re just trying to make the money, it’s not going to come.
You have to have the passion for the business and be proud of what you’re doing. You should be able to tell your friends and your family with a lot of confidence and pride that this is what you are doing, that you’re helping people. You have to be able to stand behind your business. If you’re embarrassed to talk about what you do, then you’re in the wrong line of business right now.
If you’re desperate and you’re just trying to make money to get by then you’re always going to be stuck there. If you take on business opportunities that don’t excite you, that don’t speak to who you are, that don’t truly help people because you’re just trying to make a buck, then you won’t ever make it big.
Pride and being proud of your company does pay the bills. It’s the only thing that pays the bills. You have to love what you do. You have to know that you’re helping people. It’s possible. It’s not too late to change. You can achieve rapid success when you can combine something that you love doing, that you’re really proud of and that helps a lot of people.
