Similarly starting a new business can throw a lot of challenges but it is up to you how to take them. If you take them positively and see them as a learning curve, you will learn a lot from it and will also incorporate it in your business but if you feel irritated or scared then it will take you down and there may be a time when you have to complete wind up your business.
Construction industry is in many terms a highly rewarding industry but at the same time it will equally make your life difficult. Life becomes more difficult during the beginning.
