The best investment any entrepreneur can make is in themselves. In fact, betting on yourself is the bet that literally 100% of successful individuals need to make. The key to any type of success, is to gamble on yourself – whether it is sacrificing social life, investing endless hours into your craft, or financially investing in your own ideas. It is instrumental to believe in yourself and that these bets are going to pay off. Put that belief to work.
There is always an easier road out. Yet those that truly want to succeed need to be prepared to sacrifice, grind and believe that there is no risk in these decisions. It is simply doing what is necessary to attain your goal. The only risk is inaction or half measures. Risk your comfort. Risk your time. Risk your wallet in business. Risk your current self to become the future self that you want. It is the only way to get there.
In business in particular, surround yourself with the right people. Believe in them and bet on them too. No matter how large or small their role, invest in them emotionally, impart knowledge to them and give them what they need to succeed. Enable them to do their part to the best of their abilities.
If you cannot bet on yourself then you will never win.
