“Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” ~ Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh in A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh
What this quote means in business:
In order to be successful in business, you need to have confidence. Unfortunately, many creative entrepreneurs struggle with this because their talents often lie outside the box, and growing up they were often told to “get a real job.”
That’s why I like today’s quote so much.
Creative entrepreneurs are better than they believe. Many who have broken through less-than-confident mindsets have found fabulous success using their unique creative talents.
Because creative people often have to go through more resistance than those who take more traditional routes to success, they develop inner personal strength. Therefore creative professionals are often stronger than they seem.
Creativity requires a certain kind and amount of intelligence. So, if you are a creative entrepreneur, you’re pretty smart — possibly even smarter than you think.
So, please remember, as a creative entrepreneur, you are smart. You are strong. And you are just as good — if not better — than any other entrepreneur!
