There is nothing 100% in life; you take risks from the minute you were born. Without curiosity & risk you would never have learned to walk or talk. Every time you drive a vehicle there is a chance for a fatal accident, every time you have a meal there is a chance of catching a deadly infection, every time you go to a public space you risk catching someone else’s virus. Very few people are lucky to be handed over excellent opportunities; everybody else needs to create opportunities for themselves; this goes to every aspect in life, not just business. That said, just taking risks doesn’t guarantee success, in fact nothing does. However, generally, believing in yourself, taking risks, hard work, persistence & immunity to failures are a part of almost every business that succeeds.
An average mind combined with action is 100 times better than a passive genius. Overthinkers generally don’t get anywhere, because all they really do is overthink & then think again about overthinking. I know many people that have been talking about starting a business for over 10 years & they wait for everything to be perfect, and quite honestly, even if everything were perfect, I’m pretty sure they would find some excuse. Things are never going to be perfect, it’s just never going to happen, and more importantly, things are likely to be very messed up in your life at the time you are starting your very first business. There is never a better time than as soon as possible.
The execution is more important than the idea, like it or not, that’s how things work in the real world. The best words unspoken are worth nothing, yet garbage can sound good if you repeat it enough times.
The Little Voice:
If you have a little voice in your head, then you’ve got a serious problem. Get rid of it! If you are not able to get rid of it, create another little voice that overpowers the first one. Remind yourself about this second voice every time you hear the first one. Fear is what you let it make of you.
