Dear Entrepreneur,

Yeah, we all experience moments in our careers when we feel helpless. But the true test of our character is to not stay helpless, and that depends on how we react to the feeling. You see, we can choose to either learn from the experience that got us there, and forge ahead, or we can simply let the entire feeling drag us down.

There are countless successful people who have felt helpless at some point in their career, but who chose not to succumb to the feeling.

Oprah Winfrey.
Walt Disney.
Steven Spielberg.
Henry Ford.

These names are some of the names from a long list of successful people who could have succumbed to ‘rejection’ and given up hope but chose to not. Their growth mindset wouldn’t let them accept defeat. They didn’t stay helpless because they know that in order to be successful, they need to be willing to fail hard and then bounce right back.

With love,
