Self-awareness is one of the most important aspects of one’s life. Be it in your college life, your work life, your business life or your creative life. It is a quality that we develop over time, with age and with wisdom. Self-awareness may be instilled into you by your peers, elders or your parents depending on how you are brought up as a child.
When we want to start our own business or become an entrepreneur, it is essential that you truly know yourself better than your peers or your family. The road to being a successful entrepreneur is not easy and we need to be aware of our self, so that whenever we fall we can pick ourselves up and move on.

Don’t go after the glam
You don’t care about the short term results/achievements when you are playing the long-term game of entrepreneurship. You don’t care about the glam, you love what you do, you enjoy the journey and the climb to being a successful entrepreneur.
