Sacrifices To Be An Entrepreneur

sacrifice

I watched an Olivier Roland’s video  and there is good stuff.

Olivier Roland spoke with a girl who had left her job for 18 months to create her company. This girls had left her job with a negociation to have a social assistance for 2 years. The problem is that her company doesn’t work well, she doesn’t earn enougn money and her soacial assistance will finish in 4 months. They talked together to analyse the problem.

It’s not Disney’s World

This girls didn’t work effectively and quickely for several reasons. She was lazy because she thought was going to succeed. It’s a good mindset but nobody succeed at the first shot. She thought she was in Disney’s World. Create a company is just the first step. It’s like having a stick for a hike. You have this stick to start to climb the mountain but it will be another stick at the top of the mountain. And the mountain is very hard to climb. When you have a company, it is not Disney’s World, but it’s instead « it’s the war and I want to survive ! »

This girls spend to much time to have a perfect design for her blog, a perfect design for her newsletter. It was not the most important thing to do. The most important thing to do is to grow your audience. If your content is good, your design’s blog doesn’t matter. Don’t do intelligent procrastination like her.

Entrepreneur

When you’re an entrepreneur, you’re not an employee. You face reality in a way that doesn’t forgive. That means that as your company doesn’t make money, it’s just an untested hypothesis.

Have faith and be optimistic is great but you need to test your product in the market as soon as possible. And you need to have this mindset « it’s war and I want to survive ! » like a warrior, like a samourai. Be an entrepreneur doesn’t means you will be the next Facebook, Amazon or Google because you’re an entrepreneur. Results will not come naturally because you’re an entrepreneur. You must give everything you have everydays like an ahlete.

Fight for

fight

You must be ready to sacrifice your time (miss parties, birthday party, marriage, etc) and your energy to have all the chance on your side. You must do have huge motivation, by this way when you see an obstacle, you’re excited. And if you’re not excited, this obstacle will not stop you. Everydays act, act, act, act, track your act and adjust.

Have a strategy with key actions to have first sales as soon as possible. If your product don’t work, it’s not a problem. Refund customers, use audience feedback about your product and change characteristics. Try, try, try, try and must be ready to word 10 hours per day for your company.

Spend your time to act and learn. Track your actions and adjust to improve results. Devote all your time to grow your company.

Do you propose a prototype of your product/service to your audience ?

Do You Want To Build Your Body Naturally ?

Ah ! You want to look like Katrnis Everdeen, Daniel Craig and Captain America. And immediately like Homer Simpson !

You’re in luck because there will always be magazines, products and supplements that promise you that you can have this body type in a few weeks/months. But you have no chance because the reality is not that. You can have these results, yes, after devoting time, energy, effort, discipline and dedication.

You wonder how to get there ? Most people think it’s necessary to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time to become a superhero. I talked about it in this article.

If you read the article, you know that my recommendations are to start to lose fat and then gain muscle. I’ll talk about it today and if you’re a very thin person, this article will help you.

My recommendations:

  • Lift heavy, gradually lift heavy

  • Include squat, deadlift and compound movements in your workout program

  • Sleep as much as possible

  • Eating more calories especially training days with a lots of protein, carbohydrates and vegetables.

  • Repeat month after month after month after month after month

  • When you doubt, eat more than you think

  • If you gained too much fat, reduces carbohydrate calories on non-training days.

For skinny people, you’ll have to struggle to eat more because you don’t eat enough. By eating more you’ll build muscle and add fat. After a few weeks, you can lose fat if you notice that your bodyfat percentage continues to rise.

« And Steph, I have a problem, I can’t go to the gym ! Can I gain muscle with bodyweight exercises ? »

bodyweight workout

Hear me well, you can gain muscle with bodyweight exercises, gymnasts trains mostly like that. But it will be damn hard like Metal Gear at the most difficult level, especially for your legs. If you want to gain muscle as fast as possible, it’s almost a requirement to have a barbell for squat and deadlift.

This world isn’t a Disney movie and there’s something important, genetics – there are people who are naturally thin, people who gain fat easily or gaining muscle easily. In all cases we must struggle to get results (those earning muscle easily, at the first plateau, they stagnate and cry !). Each has its genetic and we can do our best to fight in this battle but for some people the struggle will be harder than others.

« And Steph, I want more muscle but not too much »

You see, this question comes from people who are just starting a workout program, especially girls.

The unknown is scary and we’re afraid to do somethings if we don’t know how our bodies will react. Added mainstream magazine that say « lift light weights to tone arms ! » and you imagine quickly if you lift heavy weights, you will become like Hulk.

The truth: If you want to become like Hulk chose training that matches, that means: a hypertrophy training (increase muscle size), have a superior genetics, taking steroids, eat like a horse and focus on nothing except the muscle size for YEARS. If you don’t want to be like Hulk, you will not be like Hulk. Don’t do these things above, it’s simple.

It’s true that from a genetic point of view, there are people who gain muscle more quickly than others, but this is not a radical difference. It’s people who are very thin and have a fast metabolism who ask this question. Once they gain 18-22kg (40-50lbs) of muscle and fat, they’ll soon realize that their body is much better and they will never think to ask this question again.

Be Quiet And Listen

do the right thing

I want to share something with you, it’s because I have a friend who paid the price of something he did 5 years ago. Like you, I have friends who are going through bad time in their lives. This kind of thing has happened to me often and I haven’t made the right choice. When we have big problems, we don’t want to involve our friends in because everyone problems.

What make me felt super alone, you know that people will listen but they will not help you solve the problem for you, you are the only one who can solve the problem and sincerely you don’t expect other to help you solve the problem. But at the end of the day we are still human beings, we have emotions, feelings and we are sad.

Sometimes in this kind of situation, you feel the pressure to do something or you say to yourself: « No one cares about me so it’s useless for me to take care of me ». When you think like that, STOP, stop what you are doing and breathe deeply. Do right things that can improve your life, I know it’s easier said than done. But believe me, I have also been in these situations. You wonder how you can fix the problem as quickly as possible.

This is the best way to screw up your life. There is nothing wrong with doing the right things to improve your life ! I don’t care to know how long it will take to have it, I don’t care to know how the road is hard to have it because at the end of the day, I have no remorse, no regrets and I’ll be a stronger person when the problem will be resolved. That’s how you become a stronger person with taking this kind of decision.

There are people who don’t know this kind of situations, that they never fought for something, who had never made a decision that completely changes the life, that have not done things that are really annoying or did something that put them in an unstable position. God bless them, there is nothing wrong with that, good for them.

angel and evil do the right thing

There are people like me who have been through this type of situation and at a time on the path there are always two options. There is the « easy » way, risky, dangerous but you can do it, it’s possible and there are tons of things to win quickly. And the other, the « hard » way, the one where you must get up early in the morning, where you the obligation to do several things in the day. It’s boring, monotonous but it’s the real way to take because you grow up, you gaining more wisdom and you become a better person. Train yourself to stay positive and productive, especially do legal things.

Nobody know how the future will be, absolutely not and that’s really cool because everydays you create your future. It’s like a seed planted in fertile soil, you will have a beautiful plant. You plant a seed in a non-fertile soil, you have nothing, this plant wil be useless. It can help you a while but this is temporary and it can even take you away your freedom, your dignity, your self-esteem or your life.

I talked about this because I have lived it, I was in a situation where I had no one to call, I was full of friends, classmates, co-workers, people around me to go to party, buy alcohol but when a big problem happens, where are they ? Not on my side, you know what I mean. So you must invest in your life by planting seeds in fertile soil.

What I mean is that often you’ll have to make tough decisions and choose a path that is not glamorous, not parties several times in a week. But listen, it will make you someone solid, you will get what is truly yours. You’ll have a better esteem of yourself, you will not worry about anything because what you have, it’s deserved.

And that’s the beginning, it’s just creating your foundation, your genesis because you will grow and you will continue to have good things. Now in my life, I have many great opportunities but I have been failures, I’ll not lie to you, I’m not an angel. I was in dirty stories, but I learned. Sometimes someone has to tell you what you should not do and sometimes you have to learn from yourself in the hard way.

yourself do the rignt thing

It was difficult for me and it gave me more motivation to not be in this situation in the future, a situation where you can lose your freedom (prison), losing life (getting killed). This is why I have created my bubble, my fortress to protect everything I like and love, it’s a security bubble.

That is why I am a person who talks all the time to be positive, I motivates people, yes, of course I’m talking about training but there is more. Talking about fitness, it’s just the tip of the iceberg.

You know yourself that after the rain, there is the sun and life is the same.

There is nothing wrong in do the right thing for your life, it’s a simple sentence, but it’s so true. Everything is bad when you do a bad thing.

Maybe there’s someone out who is doing something now, that person is confused and doesn’t know what to do. Do right things for your life, if you need help, ask for help to someone, there is always someone who can give you a good advice and a good advice can help you to make the good action that will bring you to the solution.

do the right thing

I’ve seen people do things that put them in situations that we had never imagined and when it happens, it destroy your life and it’s too late, you spend your time regretting your act.

Everything I say comes from the heart and I know you feel it. So do everything possible to do right things to improve your life and your future generations.
