How do beginner entrepreneurs motivate themselves to keep moving?

There is.far gap between an entrepreneur and an experienced businessman. Every time a new comer has to fight with the already settled business who dissolve the emerging candidate with power. How do one earn to sustain living and motivate self and keep working. Why do we need personal relationship or contacts to get some business why not on the grounds of potential and chance.

    I have started several businesses, 60's 70's 80's all but two failed. You must be ready to sacrifice everything, fight everyone. Nothing has changed. There is only one reason to succeed, you want to. Many reasons to fail, you want to.

    You have to keep foremost in your mind why you decided to be an entrepreneur in the first place. Did you have a product or service that can solve a problem and/or improve your customer's lives?
