True success is about overcoming adversity

A lot of people think that success is an event.

One magical, transformational event.

She or he was an overnight success.

We’ve all read crap like that in the media over and over again.

For budding entrepreneurs out there, the expectation that you can become an overnight success plays havoc with their psyche when that expectation is not met.

It’s emotionally and psychologically hard to succeed in business or your career.

You have to overcome so many obstacles, hurdles, pitfalls, and mistakes in the beginning.

It’s no wonder that, according to the Small Business Association, 50% of new businesses fail in their first year.

When the pursuit of success fails to pay off immediately, many simply fold up their tents and quit.

Road To Success

Most quit because they bought into the notion that overnight success is possible and so, they are not prepared when adversity comes along, stopping them in their tracks.

In reality, success is not a linear climb.

It’s more like monkey bars.

Sometimes you are forced to move downwards, or sideways before moving upwards.

Those downwards and sideways adjustments are frustrating and test your mettle.
