Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow’. ~ Mary Anne Radmacher
This right here is something that almost everyone in the world can relate to, especially if you’re a woman entrepreneur or are aspiring to be one. Life likes to test us all, doesn’t it? And sometimes, you don’t have any other option but to keep pushing; no matter how hard it might get or how exhausted you might feel. But you know what? We, women, are resilient, above all else. And the great thing is that more and more women are discovering this about themselves.
This is the reason why there has been an inspiring rise in the number of women entrepreneurs in recent times. The SCORE Association came out with a report in 2018 that proves this. The report stated that the number of businesses owned by women increased by 45 percent from 2007 to 2016. This is five times faster than the national average. What’s more, these women-led businesses employ upwards of 9 million people and generate more than $1.5 trillion in revenue!
For the longest time, women entrepreneurs have achieved the greatest of heights; conquering the business world just as they conquer any challenge that comes in their way. They were able to do so because they didn’t let the noise of the world drown their voices. They didn’t let the tiny bouts of doubt faze them in their journey to greatness.
You Are Unstoppable
They say, half the battle is fought in your mind. But fighting this battle can be quite tricky. The mind likes to conjure up fears that don’t exist and might make you underestimate yourself. Do NOT fall in its traps. In the words of Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post, “Fearlessness is like a muscle. I know from my own life that the more I exercise it, the more natural it becomes to not let my fears run me."
Know in your heart that you are an unstoppable force. Embrace the infinite potential within you with open arms and unleash it into the world. Live life with a winner’s attitude and you shall see the kind of magic all of this can help you create. At the end of the day, it’s really all about the mindset. If you have it, you can achieve anything you want. You can be the writer of your own destiny, in every sense of the word.
Look, your dreams are precious. Whether it is to start a business or to achieve certain goals within your already-existing business, there is a reason why you want what you want. When you have a dream that holds a deep meaning, you owe it to yourself to make it come true. You owe it to yourself to not give up until you’ve made your dream your living reality. And you know what? When you finally do it, it will all have been worth it. Isn’t that something you want to experience?
