Cut yourself some slack
We are conditioned to think that success happens fast and in a straight line. It’s simply not true. Success takes time to even get going and then it often hits walls along the way.
With that said, don’t wait around for it to magically happen.
Assume you are closer than you think to a breakthrough.
You are sitting on an innovation, you have a remarkable network, the resources you need are just a few good pitches away.
You have the grit and the resilience required to carry this off.
You’ve got this 😉
