Self belief is one of the most powerful traits of an entrepreneur

How often do we hear of successful entrepreneurs sharing their stories of their early startup days, when self-belief in their businesses, products, innovations and service solutions was the only thing that kept them going when surrounded by naysayers. The fact is that self-belief is one of the most powerful traits of an entrepreneur, after all when things get tough it is essential to believe in the reasons for starting out on such a journey into the unknown, and the belief in the business idea is what keeps you going during such times. There will always be those around you that will say your idea won’t work, or the market is not ready for your product or innovation, or you should go back to a ‘safe and secure’ 9-5 job instead of trying to launch a business. But self belief is a powerful antidote to all of those extraneous pressures, and the trick is to just keep selling that idea to all those who will listen, keep pushing until something gives, and keep believing that if the idea is strong enough and unique enough, then you can make it work as a business.
