Be proud

You’ve done what a ton of people only dream about

There are tons of salaried people and employees who will only ever dream of what you’re doing.  Yes, they may wax lyrical at dinner parties about how ‘one day’ they’ll take their idea and create a hugely successful business out of it.  But year after year they go back to work.  You took the plunge.

Becoming an entrepreneur is deliberate for some people and accidental (forced by redundancy or unemployment) by others.  Either way, almost all are brave, strong people who have the courage to take the risk that setting up your own business brings.

No matter how things look today, you should feel proud of yourself.  Look back at why you made the choices you made and if the flame of passion needs to be re-kindled – do it.  Take a minute every day to feel proud of the life you chose.
