This is not directly business-related, but I think it’s worth a listen. Shane Parrish interviews 8X Olympic speed skating champion Apolo Ohno. Apolo had some natural ability early on, but didn’t take training seriously when he first started. After a big push from his father, he decided to really go all-in into his training physically and mentally. He goes into detail about what it really takes to become world-class.
I think the importance of mindset can often be underestimated. Most podcasters quit before 10 episodes. Most bloggers don’t last 6 months. Most Indie Hackers don’t make any money. It takes a lot of mental fortitude to push through continual rejection and failure. You need to convince yourself that you will succeed.
