As a startup Entrepreneur or a startup Business Owner, you’ll come to a point, where it seems, the only light or pathway that you see is the pathway to give up.
But I tell you, if you could only relax a little bit, think through how far you have come and the reason that made you start the Entrepreneur Journey.
Then you will be able to see that tiny path that gives you a thousand reasons to keep pushing on.
When you had that 3rd failure in a role, did you think, I need to pack this up?
Elon’s answer: No!
Elon: I don’t ever give up. I mean I’d have to be dead or living faster
People say; you have to have a lot of passion for what you are doing.
And it’s totally true.
The reason is, is because it’s so hard, that if you don’t, any rational person would give up.
It’s really hard and you have to do it over a sustained period of time.
So if you don’t love it, if you’re not having fun doing it, you don’t really love it.
You’re going to Give Up
Warren Buffet talking on Dishonesty
If you think you’re going to be a lot happier, if you got “2Xs instead of X” you’re probably making a mistake. I mean it
You ought to find something you like that works with that.
And you’ll get in trouble if you think that making “10Xs or 20Xs” is the answer to everything in life.
Because then you will do things like; borrow money when you shouldn’t or maybe cut corners on things that your lawyers want you to cut corners on.
It just doesn’t make any sense, you won’t like it when you look back on it.

As a startup business owner, Dishonesty can take you far but drop you faster!
If you’re going to start a company (startup a Business), it takes so much energy that, it better overcome your feeling of rest.
John Paul DeJoria
You’re going to run across a lot of rejection. I say this time in, time out.
Be prepared for the rejection, no matter how bad it is, and don’t let it overcome you or influence you.
keep on going towards what you want to do no matter what.
“No matter whether your bills are paid, not paid.
Someone says no a thousand times.”
Again go back to being enthusiastic about doing Number one hundred (100) as you were doing number one(1)
Patience is an important element for everyone who wants to start up a Business.
I had to convince myself that I’m going to make it. Regardless of how people felt at that time.
It made me feel like;
“there is going to be a point that people mistake my Confidence for Arrogance.”
Because I’ve had to.
They don’t understand the process I went through and how much I had to believe in myself in other to make these things happen.
Things that are meant to happen, will. As you’re believing in yourself, enough you can help yourself learn.
You must always Beleive in yourself and the business you want to start up or have already started up
Most people think;
“I will be successful, if the economy works.
I will be succefful if, something happens, I will be successful if, i win lottery ticket.”
Look! You’re not going to be successful, if you don’t demand it, if you literally don’t stake a claim to it to say, “this is mine!”
“Success is Mine”
You not going to have it, I promise you.
I know, I’m telling you from experience.
I spent the first 25 years of my life like a spectator, watching others get successful and then wondering why I wasn’t.
“Success is your duty, it is your Obligation and your Responsibility.”
Never ever give up!
You can change and you can move around.
But Never ever Give Up!
I know people that are very smart, they went to the Fordham School of Finance with me.
I know people who aren’t as smart and those people are the Top people in the industry today. They were tougher, they didn’t give up!
And the smart ones had everything on their plate, they always come in with an A+ on the tests and the good boards and everything else.
But when they ran into problems, they didn’t know how to solve the problems like the guys who weren’t as good.
And it’s very seldom that you see something other than this happen.
So never ever Give UP!
I feel so strong, that the reason I’m here is; “I Dream Big Dreams.”
I dream the kind of dreams that other people said would not be possible.
I’m also living proof.
This is not like a Hollywood movie, I come literally from the other side of the Trash.
If you saw where I grew up, and we took a picture of it, the neighborhood the settings, you would say; “Is impossible, that someone could come from there and get here.”
But it is possible!
I think being a business owner, is the hardest thing to do in this country.
It takes your money, and you invest in an idea which is essentially investing in yourself.
But if you do it solely to make money you’re going to lose. And you really have to do it
And I know that a lot of people out there, get up every morning in their household and they’re driving in the car right now, on their way to a job that they may or may not love.
I would encourage them just to stick to the grind.
Bob Johnson (CEO of BET)
If you don’t Believe in yourself.
If you don’t believe you can overcome obstacles.
If you don’t believe that you have a work ethic.
If you don’t believe you have the inner confidence to project to other people.
It’ll Never Happen!
Project yourself to age 80.
And then think back over your life, and if you’re 80, you want to minimize the number of regrets you have throughout that period of time.
I am not going to sit inside a corporation for 20 years!
The time is now!
The time is now for people to Believe in themselves.
The time is now for it to be Okay to be Great.
