I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that it is a mantra which all small business owners and successful entrepreneurs need to take on board if they want to go far. There are many situations where you may run into a brick wall, and have your plans thwarted by a resolute “No”. Be this in a sales pitch, facing regulations, or trying to arrange finance for your business.
And it is the attitude which you have at these points in time which sets you apart from everyone else, and ultimately decides if that failure is inevitable, or whether you are able to successfully achieve your goals.
If all you do is believe you are going to be successful, then you are already half way there.
