Failure is the best teacher....or someone else's success is.

 
  The most interesting thing happen to me, a good friend of mine just celebrated the launch of their business. The reason this is interesting is because when he started, nobody believed in him. He started a business with no knowledge about marketing, contracts, information about the products he needed, the industry or even entrepreneurship. He legitimately sat down and said I want to do a sound recording business and did that.  As I sit here and look at him because he launched without this information, he saw it on youtube and decided he wanted to do it. So I thought about how I failed myself as an entrepreneur and took these three life lessons from him happen to me, a good friend of mine just celebrated the launch of their business.

1. The crazier the better
 Just because it sounds crazy doesn't mean you shouldn't try it. If you want to do it, do it. The beauty of modern day entrepreneurship it allows you to come up with an idea, test it out and if it works then continue, and if it doesn't then try something else. With more and more resources becoming available, you can start it with minimum risk.works then continue, and if it doesn't then try something else.

2. Waiting on my ideason my ideas
They say anybody can come up with ideas, but how many will act on them. The world is constantly changing, which is causing information to becoming outdated. This is why waiting on yo ideas are never a good thing because someone else is going to take them. There is never going to be a right time to start. I guarantee you,  we all had an idea, waited on it and saw someone execute it. You can  wait if you want to, but don't be surprised if someone  takes it from you.


3. Confidence
 This is the biggest cliche in the whole wide world, but this is so true. Whenever I would come up with an idea, I would just wait on it. Let years and years go by before finally starting on it and then lose  enthusiasm for it.The confidence will help  when you start to feel overwhelm and anxious about pursuing your ideas. It will help you deal with the millions of mistakes you are  going to make and the thousands of no's you are going to hear. Its is going to be there when nothing is going right and when everything is going wrong. Confidence is going to help you raise your bar and help you make a comeback. It will be the second voice when you are comparing yourself with someone else who is successful. That voice will tell you all  the reasons why you also can be successful.

They say inspiration comes from what we internalize, maybe the biggest lesson I learned from my friend internalize my progress and to OUTSOURCE EVERYTHING. Well. that that that that that that is  another story completely.
