In the current world of global giants, it’s easy to get scared at the idea of starting your own business.
When you see a giant company, we often take them as a natural part of the business landscape, rather like time or gravity.
However, when you look at the companies that have come before you, remember that Apple started in someone’s garage, Wal-Mart started with one store, and every other business started small as well. Some businesses grow explosively, and others have grown slowly but over a matter of decades.
Just look at other businesses as an example of what’s possible rather than a discouraging piece of evidence proving what you can’t do.
