Dear Entrepreneur,

Be grateful for where you are.

Try to take a moment and reflect on how hard you’ve worked to get to where you are today. Reflect on how many times you had to create a new business, and pivot to another when the current one doesn’t seem to work. Reflect on how many unsuccessful cold sales call or investor pitching sessions you’ve gone through.

Think about all the hours you’ve put in so far.

Now, you’ll agree with me that you’ve worked really hard to get to where you are today, so be grateful for all the hard work you’ve had to put in to get here. Also, reflect on the lessons you’ve learned along the way.

Remember that you didn’t fail if you learned something new from it. So, count them as lessons and not failures. Try to practice this act of gratitude everyday, and be open to new experiences—because you either win or you learn, and learning is a win to me.

With love,
