How true is this! A life as an entrepreneur involves numerous people telling you that you’re foolish for pursuing your dreams. That you’re destined to fail or should quit while you’re ahead and get a real job. However, the ones that are telling you that you can’t do something are the ones that are making excuses for their own lack of ambition. No one else has to fully believe in your dreams. You’re the one making them happen after all.
