10 Things You Must Do to Be Successful In Business (and in Life)
Part 1: Be Fearless
Want to know why becoming successful in a business venture is considered such a daunting feat by society?
While there are obvious hurdles to face, one of the biggest challenges is in overcoming the fear of jumping into a business in the first place. However, this is only the beginning of the road for those who want to be truly successful in business.
Overcoming your fears and getting started is noble, but the true tests of a fearless entrepreneur will be constant,
√ from initiating a conversation at a networking mixer,
√ asking for the sale on a major deal,
√ severing ties with a partner who is causing harm to the venture,
and perhaps the most frightening of all situations…
√ watching a business fail (it happened to Henry Ford twice before he designed his famous assembly line!)
One who can fail miserably and not be scared to dust themselves off and try again and again until they are successful is truly fearless.
