Although it is highly believed that we have to sacrifice everything to triumph, and that is actually the kind of the primary basis of the bite-size entrepreneur. There are some common entrepreneurship myths.
It is like we are into this belief that if we sacrifice everything we can make a mark, it is just like a myth that is literally on the back of the book. And we end up having this culture that we know about any particular place on this Earth better. A common belief is that a lone entrepreneur who is down to earth, has sacrificed his family, security almost broke, and out looking for opportunities; suddenly comes up with a brilliant idea and clings on to it and ultimately becomes rich, a billionaire. And then they have a lavish lifestyle, and maybe buy an island in the Caribbean. However, it's imperative to stick to reality although one cannot rule out this possibility either. Honesty is always the best policy irrespective of your situation. Being successful is a gradual process which you cannot achieve instantly, and you have to put in your best efforts, hours of study. This is how you start to influence people around you which eventually begin to grow and expand. And this too happens gradually with time. Things don't happen suddenly, that would be an optical illusion, and every day and every hour counts. Working on a regular basis may not sound romantic, but that's how progress takes place, you have to show up every day, and you might have to work alone and sometimes you have to convince a tough crowd.
To gain something, like achieving the first paycheck you have to work hard as things don't happen in quantum leaps. It is important to accept the fact that not everything is under your control and you have to do your part. For this, you need to stay calm and read some books that will guide you and help you bring your worth. There is no shortcut in life, and we should strive to keep working hard until our goal is achieved.
