Before you decide to pursue something worthwhile, the most important thing to take into consideration is your "why". Whether you're starting a business, pursuing your dream job, or chasing a certain lifestyle, its going to take much longer than you think it is. Your reason for pursuing it (which should be bigger than for your own benefit) is the only thing that's going to keep you going.
1. Don't let people gas you up. Never bask the applauds..it'll keep you stagnant and reminiscing over the last cool thing you did, or over the last person who told you that you're doing something cool instead of moving forward.
2. Be patient, put in the work, and great things will come to you. People are afraid of the work and the time everything takes. All I've done is eliminate any and all distractions in my life, stay consistent, and great things happened career-wise as a result.
