First of all,what are startups?
A startup is a young company founded by one or more entrepreneurs to develop a unique product or service and bring it to market. By its nature, the typical startup tends to be a shoestring operation, with initial funding from the founders or their friends and families.
Listen to Warren Buffet and Bill Gates. In an interview, bill and warren were asked to name one secret that led to their success. It wasn’t their mentors or technical skills or their luck. It was Focus.
Most entrepreneurs today don’t have that. Just like the sunlight can’t burn a paper without being focused, you can’t make an impact without focus. Focus and perseverance are the keys to a successful business.
If you are normal, you can’t sit and focus to save your life. You can’t even read this without thinking. Most people don’t have the attention span to focus for one single minute.Failed entrepreneurs hide this inability to work and blame the market or people as the cause of their failure.At the end, all it comes down to is a lack of focus.
Yes, there can be technical problems with your product/service. Or your team was bad, your product was useless. Or your sales process didn’t work.
The problem is that you weren’t focused enough to see and fix that.
No matter how bad the market is, there is someone who is making money. The only thing that separates you from him is your ability to focus. To make money in business requires your all. When you try to work at it with a foggy and stressed brain, you fail. Only when you develop the ability to sit and work for hours, your business will make six-figures.
No matter how bad the market is, there is someone who is making money.
