“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty…”
If you were to read nothing past this first sentence, at least walk away with this: success takes hard work, sacrifice and dedication.
While pain may not be a requirement to doing certain things, we do agree that success should be difficult to achieve and should require some effort. This extends to building a company. In fact, it is amplified by building a company! Yet, for some unknown reason, people sometimes forget this.
Consider this blog post as a reminder. Building a company is not easy; otherwise everyone would be doing it. If your company is struggling, you should be too. You should be doing everything in your power to achieve success. Whether that means eating ramen for a whole month, downsizing the size of your staff or clocking in extra hours. We want to see you work!
Success takes sacrifices. While we aren’t advocating throwing away your personal life for the sake of business, we recommend seriously evaluating your priorities.
