Focus until you win

I've seen entrepreneurs who have a good go at a business. They are talented, skilled, and on fire and they go at it, hard-core! But after a few bumps in the road, when things aren't going to plan, they give up and move on to the next great idea that'll make them rich.

I however think there is power in focusing on something until you win. That focus has been something that has helped me get to where I am today.

It all started when my dad handed me a tutorial on how to write HTML, the language of websites. 

Years later when I built my software company, I was focused. Winning for me was creating a great product. 

I spent countless hours programming, building the website, setting up billing, researching, and more programming. 

It was slow. It took years to even get close to giving me a decent income but I kept at it. I didn't give up. 

Eventually, I sold that business for 7 figures. Someone wanted what I'd built.

There certainly are times to quit. Most businesses fail in the first 5 years. Not all ideas were good ideas. Not all individuals or teams are talented enough. 

At the same time, not everyone has that intense focus where they will do what it takes to win. It's a sacrifice and you're going to have to trade time for that focus. But it can pay off in a big way if you win.
