“Life’s not about how hard of a hit you can give… it’s about how many you can take, and still keep moving forward.” ― Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa
Most people don’t realize how hard it’s going to be when they start a business.
What matters most is if you are willing to continue during the struggle, when there’s nothing clear that says it’s going to get better, or that it’s going to work at all.
That is the essence of entrepreneurship and building a business.
Dan makes some excellent points in this post.
Personally, I find that the struggle is what makes it worthwhile, knowing there's something to strive towards is what gives us the inspiration to continue making something that people enjoy using.
