"Dream the impossible dream, Fight the unbeatable foe, Strive with your last ounce of courage, to reach the unreachable star." -Joe Darion
1. Passion - If your heart isn't into it, don't do it. I think that we reach our potential when we are working on something that fires us up! Find the heartbeat in your business and let it be your core.
2. Persistence - Keep plugging away. Even when things happen unexpectedly in your life, don't give up and don't give into fear. What are you doing to be persistent? Are you updating your blog frequently? Are you connecting with people in your industry? Push for what you have worked so very hard for and if one door closes, another one will open! You will miss many opportunities if you're not active and open-minded. Believe in your business!
3. Patience - Always, ALWAYS be patient with your business. It's your baby, right? You have planted the seed, but it takes time to nurture it and let it grow. Don't worry so much about finding the "right" path. Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day.
Are there any characteristics that you have found helpful in running your business?
