I have seen countless business owners shy from articulating their business strategy because they “aren’t great at strategy and don’t have any great ideas.”
What they mean is “I don’t have any ideas with a 100% chance or success and no chance of being criticised.
But no great ideas? Seriously.
There are no ideas that have a 100% chance of success. Shit happens, both positive and negative. The successful business owner creates internal certainty that whatever happens they will be able to respond.
If you don’t want to fail, don’t try, don’t leave the house, but also don’t expect to be successful.
Or do you want to be right?
Recently I was in a meeting with my management team.
One isn’t better than the other.
We all have different personas; the child, the warrior, the sage etc.
Is a feeling.
Entrepreneurs and doctors are similar in many ways.
Recently, I had an experience that led to a decision that on the outside might have seemed rapid and reckless.
Recently I met someone who inspired me to my very core; where they’ve come from, what they believe in, what they are doing, who they are, the integrity and courage they live with, the way they are living, the choices they are making, the trust they choose to live with…
They say the man who is going to live to 150 has already been born.
