Owning and running your own business is much more than a job. It is a way of life that has no room for lukewarm enthusiasm or a half-hearted desire to win. The stakes are very high; the rewards for those who can succeed are great, but the penalties for failing are painful.
Your business deserves your total commitment and 110% effort – even to the point of being an obsession at certain times. If you are unable to give it the time, care, effort, thought and attention it needs, you are probably better off out of it. Unless you are totally in control of a healthy and top-performing business, you will run the risk of suffering from mental stress, which can lead to serious health problems and a failed business. Aim to be a winner, or get out!
