Entrepreneurs endure periods of success and failure. Experienced leaders know the challenge of turn a page on projects or businesses that play their course, and then rekindling the creative flame to discover their next calling.
Here, Elizabeth Gilbert shares her experience of achieving remarkable success, suffering from the impact her success and then rediscovering her creativity through past failures.
Gilbert advocates that entrepreneurs should love what they do, more than the success that may come form it. Doing so will allow entrepreneurs to develop the resilience to carry on without fear of potential failure.
In her words, "I loved writing more than I hated failing at writing, which is to say that I loved writing more than I loved my own ego, which is ultimately to say that I loved writing more than I loved myself. And that's how I pushed through it."
