Struggling Entrepreneurs, Do Not Give Up

It’s rough out there right now, I know. You’re losing your cool in this tough economic market. You’re trying to make ends meet, while at the same time, you’re trying to push ahead and be successful as an entrepreneur. You’re working your a#* off and it’s getting you by, but not getting you ahead.

I know how you’re feeling.

I know what it’s like to be spending more than you make. I know what it’s like to have your wife give you that look when you tell her you need to spend another $1,000 or more to start a new project. I know how it feels to be so frustrated that you haven’t “made it” yet that you want to give up and go get that “real job” you said you would never take.

I know how you’re feeling.

I know what it’s like to see millionaire friends not worry about money. I know what it’s like to see your associates who have already “hit their home run” not worry about the economy because they’ve got money coming in consistently every month. I know what it’s like to wake up every day and wonder if today is going to be the big day you get an idea to turn it all around.

Welcome to being a struggling entrepreneur. It’s a rough life.

But there’s good news too.

If your struggling there is hope. There is a reason to carry on. You can make it work, if you carry on.

Remember that every single great success story started with one of the following…

1. I failed 1,000 times before I succeeded…
2. We had no money left in our bank account…
3. I was on the verge of giving up…

Sound familiar? Being an entrepreneur has its ups and downs. Yes, there is going to be struggle through the tough times, and yes, it could possibly drain your bank account and damage your marriage, and yes, it could drive you to want to give up.

But that’s when your passion comes through to save you. That’s when you stop pitying yourself and turn towards the sun and give it another go. That’s when you work even harder to get what you wanted.

Don’t give up. Keep taking your shots. Keep innovating. Keep pushing new ideas and supporting old ones. Keep on keeping on.

It will happen. You can succeed. You can hit that home run. You may look back at these days years from now and remember about how tough it was, but then be proud of yourself for persevering.

The entrepreneur inside you knows you can do it. Now, just do it.
