The Harsh Reality
by DanM in Blog Post No Comments
Was speaking with my friend Justin Devonshire who on a call with a client of his, discussed the harsh reality of what we do as entrepreneurs.
We have some very experienced people here in the group and equally some very new and ‘green’ folks to this world.
It is NOT for everyone.
You see all the books, the courses, the digital ‘high fives’ from those who are making it work.
But we hear less from those who isn’t.
It’s all too easy to look at people who are already making it, and even though you hear their back stories, the struggles they have gone through to get where they are now:
When you have no money to pay the bills, you spend every second of your day working where the next pay check will come from, paralyzed by fear and you feel like giving up?
Where do you turn?
Do you know what it actually takes to achieve what you are looking to achieve?
Do you have the support, the drive, the ability to willingly sacrifice time, effort, energy?
Saw an article the other day about suicide rates in entrepreneurs.
It’s such a brutally lonely and tough journey at times and the higher up you get,
The lonelier it is.
I can’t stand when I see people slagging off those who give people shit who have jobs.
I miss having a job at times.
There is a lot to be said to being around people, routine, working towards one goal, being able to switch off when you get home.
When you decide to put your hand up and say ‘I’m going to do it my way’ no one prepares you for what it’s going to be like.
And, which is more insane, you end up spending so much time in your head that you create scenarios and ‘stuff’ that half the time never happens.
Not too sure what my thoughts were behind his post, or why I wrote it to be honest just felt like sharing.
There’s nothing wrong with choosing to settle or going ‘all in’
Just like in anything in life for all the smooth, you have the rough to deal with too.
