Knowingly fail and reflect
It is never easy to try again after failing once and to repeat the process. Failure is always around the corner and can happen every day even with the smallest of things. To learn with one's mistakes is however one of the most important character traits every entrepreneur can develop in order to grow their ability to make decisions and their willpower. This way he or she will be better prepared to face the big obstacles to come.
Accept and face all fears
According to author Brendan Burchard, fear can be split into 3 categories: fear of losing (by not moving forward with fear of losing something valuable), fear of learning (having to deal with the complicated process of interiorising new methods) and the fear of outcome (having a different result from what was expected). All of these can impair one's ability to take the next step but, more than to run away from, they must face in order to overcome themselves.
Learn to postpone a small piece of joy and work arduously now to reap more valuable and long lasting rewards in the future. Spending two hours every day to master a complicated task can make all the difference in your life and to teach valuable lessons over the significance continuous effort can have in self valuation.
Never forget to sleep
To have the needed hours of sleep every night is not as secondary as it may seem. Look at Arianna Huffington's story when she was launching the "Huffington Post". She was working 18 hours a day with no rest as she was so focused in developing her company until one day she collapsed without warning. She thumped her head on a desk and woke up in a pool of blood hours later. An episode which profoundly left its marks and made her take steps in order to carefully plan her sleeping patterns. When you have adequate rest one feels with more energy and greater ability to deal with problems.
Give to others
Success depends more every day in the way we interact with others and how much effort we put in offering something. According to Adam Grant, author of the book "Give and Take: Why Helping Others Drives our Success", entrepreneurs who save more energy to help and share a portion of their earnings with others, are the ones who are more likely to have greater success throughout their professional careers.
