No One Is Really Self Made

No one ever gets to where they end up alone. Instead, we are a culmination of all of the people we’ve crossed paths with.

Acknowledging your path is more than a stunt to make you seem humble or just an exercise in gratitude. While humility and gratitude are powerful, taking note of the assistance and support you’ve had on your entrepreneurial journey is a strategic move. When you create a gratitude habit for your past relationships, you begin attracting positive future relationships.
