Business Never Sleeps (How to Stay Ahead of Your Competitors)
In the world of entrepreneurship, it doesn’t matter if you’re sick or it’s a holiday, you have to do whatever it takes because business never sleeps.
If you’re feeling sick or you don’t want to work, pull it together and do whatever it takes to get the job done. There’s someone else out there who’s younger, who’s hungrier than you, who’s going to do whatever it takes to succeed, get out of their parents’ house and live a better life. So if you’re not willing to put in the hours, you’re going to lose. It’s the sad reality of it. People make fun of me because I’ll work holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas or I work when I’m sick even if I have a fever, and a lot of it is because I’m passionate about what I’m doing, but in addition to that, I know if I’m not working and doing whatever I can to get ahead of my competition, they’re going to overtake me.1:00
In many cases, I’m already behind my competition. I don’t have the biggest business in the space. I’m not making the most amount of money, and that’s why when I’m sick or when it’s a holiday, I’m doing whatever it takes to get on top. And sure, some people look at me and be like that’s not living an amazing life. That’s a terrible way to live. But the way I look at it is I’m passionate about what I’m doing. I love working, and I don’t see it as sad. I see it as hey, this is my opportunity to get ahead of other people or at least catch-up, and if you’re not willing to do whatever it takes, you’re not cut out to be an entrepreneur. It’s sad, but it’s true. And that’s okay, as well.

But if you want to be an entrepreneur, you want to succeed, and you need to make sure that you’re willing to do whatever it takes to succeed even if that means working holidays, sometimes spending less time with your family. I know that’s no fun, but sometimes it’s a sacrifice that you have to make, in addition to working the days you don’t feel like it.
Have a great day!
