      8 Entrepreneurs On The Magic Moment When They Knew Their Startup Had Made It

      Starting a business is not for the faint of heart. According to the Small Business Administration, only about half of all new businesses will survive for five years. For those who do stick it out, dreams of getting rich quickly will be supplanted by the reality that sweat equity doesn’t translate to billions of dollars overnight. In fact, one study of 158,000 startups found that those businesses that did survive experienced plenty of growing pains as they became established.

      5 Simple Ways to Harness The Power Of Gratitude At Work

      We all know the good feelings that come with being acknowledged for something that we did. Those feelings result in wanting to do well, and we continue to look for ways to give our best effort.

      7 Lies Startup Founders Unknowingly Tell Themselves

      I like to see myself as an honest person—and I am—but I have to admit that I’ve lied to myself many times as a business owner. Startup founders can't always help it. As long as we remain convinced of our ideas, we're forced to push forward, no matter what's going on in our lives or whatever doubters might say. But it was only by realizing that some of those unconscious beliefs of mine were actually hurting my business that I was able to plot a clear path forward and see it succeed.

      I was seated next to Sharon, the SVP, as she explained that Bob, a junior-level executive, had "gotten away" with challenging their boss, the COO, on the latter's ideas. After giving the play-by-play, Sharon laughed and remarked that Bob was lucky he didn't get fired, since others hadn't fared so well after making similar bold moves.

      Lead Or Die

      One day in September 2012, about 80 Taliban fighters rolled up to a mosque outside of Marjah, one of the major hubs in the southern Afghan province of Helmand. Toting AK-47s and RPGs, the men announced they were there to take back the town, which U.S. forces ripped from insurgents' grip in 2010 during President Barack Obama's surge of troops into Afghanistan. More recently, the Americans have lowered their profile, part of a wider effort to let the Afghans secure their own cities and towns.
