Miss Universe, and every pageant winner, learned to compete long before the day of the competition. Long hours of perfecting both art and science of whatever the competition requires is mandatory. Small steps forward and plenty of setbacks are common. The winners, like Miss Universe, also master the art of celebrating small wins.
Those three questions are the foundation of sustainable success for every entrepreneur who ever pulled up a bootstrap anywhere on the planet. Remember that over 90% of all fail because they quit, not because they lacked the ability. Small business success is survival of the fittest in the marathon of chasing your dreams. It is not about finishing first, it is about running the race and never quitting.
