The biggest thing that holds us back as entrepreneurs is doubt. The biggest thing that you have to realize is that doubt is not the truth. It makes you feel like you don’t have what it takes. It makes you feel like you can’t do it. None of it is true. If you set yourself a goal, and you commit to it for months or years and you work on it every single day, you will see progress. You will hit that goal!
It doesn’t take big life-changing moves. It doesn’t take huge drastic things. It takes commitment and consistency. Do those things, and teach yourself what you’re capable of. And then you can do the next thing, and the next thing, and the next thing. More than anything, what you have to do is train yourself. When that little bit of doubt starts to creep in, when you start to have that challenge, you need to realize that you only have to take three giant steps forward and push through that doubt. You are capable of it. You can do it.
If you just keep driving forward, if you just take a step forward every single day (as small as it seems), you will get there. And then at one point, you’re going to look back five years, seven years, ten years in the future, and say, “How did I even get here?” It didn’t happen with big flips. It happened step by step, day after day, year after year. You suddenly wake up one day and realize, “I have all these things that I didn’t even think that I was going to have.”
That little voice in your head, that doubt, will tell you that you can’t do it. It’s lying to you. Don’t listen to it. Don’t be like everyone else. Don’t listen to that voice.
Push through and prove to yourself what you’re really capable of.
