It's your job to do it anyway...

At the start most won’t believe…it’s your job to do it anyway.

Most people aren’t going to want to help…it’s your job to do it anyway.

Most investors will not want to get involved…it’s your job to do it anyway.

Even as you gain a little momentum, most will think it’s going to fall apart any minute…it’s your job to do it anyway.

As you finally begin to build into a real company, competitors will tell you that you are going to lose…it’s your job to do it anyway.

When you stop to think about it, starting anything is setting yourself up for a massive amount of pushback and naysayers…instead of getting beat down, and exhausted by it, use it as motivation to fuel your fire and your determination…because, if you *really* believe in what you’re doing (and why you’re doing it) it’s your job to do it anyway.
