Have you ever failed at something? I am sure you have; all of us have. Yet, what separates leaders from followers is the ability to get back up after being knocked off of your feet. That crazy desire to succeed defeats everything else.
If you are doing something that you truly love, and something that really matters to you, you will continue at it, no matter what. In your mind, you really don’t have any other choice.
I’ve taken some hits and thought that I will just abandon whatever it was I was doing and just forget about it. But merely a day will pass and I know that I have to continue to push. I haven’t failed until I gave up, and until that I will test a thousand different ways to find a solution.
So, as the modern entrepreneurial wisdom goes: fail fast, fail early, fail often.
