The Roadblocks To Success: Famous Failures Of All Time

Entrepreneurship indeed offers the ultimate risk and reward experience. However, becoming an entrepreneur is never easy. It takes a lot of guts, perseverance and patience to make it.

I actually realized this the hard way. In the past 6 months of being a full-time entrepreneur, I started to encounter a few roadblocks to entrepreneurial success. I realized that despite the fact of having a good business plan, problems and challenges will definitely occur in your journey.

Sometimes these roadblocks seem impossible to overcome and that is where the “make it or break it point” of an entrepreneurial journey occurs. It is actually the time that causes too many start-up entrepreneurs to give up.

To help motivate entrepreneurs to move forward, Here is a 3 minute video about successful individuals and their failures.

By the time of writing this, I admit that I am still in a pinch with a few roadblocks such as wrong decisions and financial losses. But I guess I am actually lucky to have encountered these early on. Thanks to these roadblocks, I had time to reflect on myself and I realized some of my shortcomings as an entrepreneur. Now I know what are the things that I need to improve in the future.

“I think of them as speed bumps instead of roadblocks. Just a minor delay to get me over the hump on the highway to my dreams. You never know the things you might see if you slow down on your journey so you can learn and enjoy the moments.”
