Everyone has those moments -- you hit a wall and don’t think you can go any further. You’ve encountered an obstacle that looks like it can’t be overcome, you’ve suffered a defeat and don’t think you can handle another one, or you have too much uncertainty ahead of you to want to move forward. When you get to a moment like this, you have two choices: Either turn back or keep going. Logically, you might realize that to keep going is almost always the better choice, but in the moment, turning back or doing nothing is far more appealing and far easier to choose. I think what kept me going is my obsession with freedom. If you think being an entrepreneur is about the money, you're wrong. If you think it's about fame or bragging rights you're wrong.
You can make money doing a 9-5 and you've got a better chance of becoming famous by writing a book than starting a business. You could win a watermelon eating competition and earn your bragging rights.
Entrepreneurship is all about freedom. Nothing more, nothing less.
