Espressopreneur: The Art of Overcoming Disbelief

“Applied faith is the dynamo of science of personal achievement, the source of the energy to put your thoughts into actions.” — Napoleon Hill, Napoleon Hill's Keys to Success

When you’re launching your startup, new product or growing your business, you have to have faith in what you’re doing. I know this sounds like a simple statement, and I’m sure the song “Gotta have faith” by George Michael is resonating in your entrepreneur mind by now.

This is not a sermon. The concept of faith is what drives innovation and disruption in any market. It is an intangible that enables your entrepreneur mind to sustain positivity when you meet resistance and opposition in the marketplace to your idea.

Faith enables you to continue moving forward against any and all negativity while listening to market feedback. Faith enables you to jump over market obstacles and continue to improve your idea until there is no more resistance left from the market and the resounding shout from the naysayers becomes, “What a great idea … what a great product … what a great service … I’m buying it and telling others about it.” 

Now back to finishing my cup of Starbucks espresso. Share your thoughts by commenting below.

It's very true that faith might seem like an obvious to a start up or idea, but a lot of entrepreneurs don't have it. It's one thing to make money off a good product, the question is do you believe in that product? Do you see it as a great thing that could make a difference? Why even do a project or put effort and time when you truly don't have a hundred percent faith in it.
