Willing To Fail
Starting a business to help others is a noble endeavor, but “noble” is not enough to guarantee success. The hard fact is that your business may not succeed: certainly not as quickly as you would like it to. Once you are clear about that, you may decide to start your business anyway. That is the point where your business can be of genuine use to others.
Leverage your curiosity: Make it about what you will learn in the process. Don’t wait for permission or assurances. If your business is something you can’t NOT do, then do it. Even if it does not “succeed” in the conventional sense, you will learn tremendous lessons which can be parlayed into something else. Your chance of success increases with each “at bat”.
Authentic success grows out of the willingness to fail.
