There are a lot of similarities between starting a business and doing two hours of pushing.
1. Both are extraordinarily hard
2. Most will say you are crazy
3. Very few people ever try
4. Both are mentally challenging
5. You have no idea if you will be successful
6. Very few people can help you
7. Both endeavors take 100% commitment and a winning attitude
8. Preparation, practice, and planning are key
9. Both involve giving up a part of your life to accomplish something you have never done
10. When you achieve ... it's all yours and it can never be taken away from you
