Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #7

09 Oct 2012 Uncategorized

I was watching a movie about Thomas Edison and realized that besides his genius for invention, he had no fear of failure. In fact, to get the electric light invented, he failed over 900 times to find the proper material to make it stay lit. Many of his inventions never went anywhere. Fear can hold an entrepreneur back from going with their gut or trying something new. You may say to yourself, “Someone has probably already thought of that”…or, “What if I fail?”…or, “What I’m doing now is working for me…so why try something new? Or, “If it fails, I’ll be embarrassed.” Circumvent this by telling the world “I’m an entrepreneur…I throw lots of ideas against the wall…and whatever sticks…I add to my system.” After all, this is what the world’s other geniuses do.
