Being relentless is a fundamental requirement to succeed in life.

But this article is about entrepreneurship but feel free to apply it to other aspects of life.

This is not a couch conversation but the voice of a young man who will be 26 years old talking about the stones that arise in entrepreneurship.

When we research Elon Musk we will see countless times that many businesses he started went wrong and he always turned around and didn't stop until one went right and he kept going.

We can also see this in the story of Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and other men who today, when talking about entrepreneurship, are icons, they are a reference.

But there is one thing in common in all of them, it is persistence, resilience. Remember the subtitle of this article? Well, these difficult virtues are part of the complete Kit that is relentlessness.

It is not a world where you created something or improved something that already exists on the market and it worked right away.

Even every business that is successful today was yesterday's failure, but the key to today's success is to be relentless.

I know this is something that maybe you know very well but life is not for failures, this is a truth, all those who experience failure today chose to live it.

Success is also a choice and even better, success is a consequence of constant attempts at what failed.


Exactly for everything you will experience, so put something in mind, life itself will give you difficulties to improve yourself, this thought must accompany your mind so that you don't feel undeserving of success.

Life is hard! I know you already know this.

So try to get harder to bear and persist, this is all about being relentless and just that will make you victorious.

See some practical examples

Imagine if Elon Musk when he created SpaceX gave up on the first failure of the spacecraft that did not leave the stratosphere?

Imagine how much money he had to spend investing until he got it right?

He went bankrupt many times believe me! But he knew where he always wanted to go, it worked and he didn't stop there.

And this was just an example of him being known and a reference and it's good when we can look at very successful people and identify with his story.

Every successful person has a history of failure and these constant failures have led to their success.

So I ask you, what do you choose, try and try until you succeed or after failures give up?

You will always have these choices.

Persist, don't give up, support the process, learn from the process this gives us a lot of baggage about life this is the experience that others will want to hear from you.

That's why in the journey of entrepreneurship, failure is already a certainty, I hope you understand what I'm referring to success is how much you dug to find the gold, it's essential to train yourself in resilience.

Otherwise, you will be a crybaby and mourner of life, admiring only the others who are succeeding when in fact, they all rise fall after fall.

Never forget motivation, there will be times when the desire to give up will be greater but don't give up, look for motivations, talk to people who have already gotten there, watch videos on Youtube about and, you will see that you will be motivated again and with the strength to continue.
