Keep the Faith
Pundits and experts tell us that the key emotional strength of an entrepreneur is Passion.
In my opinion this is untrue.
Passion is in fact vital, but I would argue that it is an outcome of the true key strength.
And that is Belief.
Belief is what allows us to ignore the odds. Belief is what enables us to fight - again and again. Belief gives us strength and allow us to justify the sacrifices.
And an entrepreneur that loses the passion can still get by. An entrepreneur that no longer believes, however, has nothing. They are like the priest without faith... Lost.
