When you look at successful businesses — be it one of the tech startup unicorns, a thriving social business or a nonprofit making a dent in the universe, they all have one thing in common:
Someone once made a courageous decision.
No doubt: It takes guts to start any type of company. Building and running it, requires skill and perseverance.
Building something truly great and successful requires a lion’s heart filled with courage. The odds will be stacked against you. The world will call you crazy. The obstacles will feel insurmountable.
And yet: The only way to build something great is by starting with a courageous decision.
Eventually it will get easier. The world will come around and cheer you on. And every obstacle you overcome will be another victory for you to celebrate.
