Day 25: The Two Types Of Belief

There are two types of belief. One is unconditional, the other is not.

The first type is like unconditional love. It doesn't matter what the circumstances that person will always support you no matter what. Outside of friends and family, this type of belief is rare to find in others.

The second type is more common. It is fine. Anyone can say they "believe in you," but this is usually when things are just starting out and you haven't encountered any difficulties in your new venture yet. But when things start getting rough, and you haven't made good on your potential yet, those people disappear as they are no longer willing to support you.

I had someone who I thought had the first type of belief in me turn out to be the second. No explanation why they stopped believing in me. Here they were on my side yesterday, today they are gone.

That's just business (and life).

It's a tough lesson, but it's an important one to learn upfront now. This might be the first time, but it certainly won't be the last.

I have to be ready for that. I'll still continue on of course with my newsletter, no matter what.
