I read a college graduate’s story of how things went for him after graduation. He had dreams and ideas. And he knew he wanted to be a business owner instead of just finding a job. But he tried a few things that didn’t work. So, his story included why it’s important to keep going despite all that.
But I’ll let him share his advice for anyone who wants to be a business owner.
“So you had a dream about building a business. You came up with a great idea, you managed to turn it into a workable project and you released it to the market. 90% of the people with great ideas don’t even get this far. Heck, they don’t even dare to try it! And that’s a shame, because the world needs people who take risks, who try to change things… and who fail.
The real question is: do you know why it failed? Can you point out mistakes that you made and learn from them? Perhaps you failed to research the market before you created your product. Perhaps you made a crucial mistake in keeping your finances under control. But the point is: identify the thing that went wrong. And take it as a lesson learned for next time.
Nobody succeeds all the time. So, if you never make mistakes and if you never fail, you’re playing it safe. And then you’re not learning. I mean: even Steve Jobs failed when he got kicked out of Apple. Do you think he went back to a 9 to 5 job, thinking he wasn’t good enough to build a business? Heck no! He started a new business that became so good, that Apple had to acquire it. And we all know the rest.
You succeeded at pursuing your dream. You gave it a great try. It didn’t work out the way you expected it. But the failure of the project doesn’t make you a failure. And if the experience made you a better person with better ideas, it is not a failure. I’m sure you’re gonna try again. And succeed.”
That’s great advice!
If you’re a young person who’s about ready to go out into the real world, just know it’s gonna take real skills. And vision. Because if you’re not sure where you’re going, how will you know when you get there. That’s like driving at night with the headlights off.
So, that’s why the very first lessons in RondaReady YOUniversity are designed to help you discover your Vision. And they can help you map out the way you’d actually like to go. Especially if you wanna be a business owner. But the skills you gain can help you get the best job, too, if that’s your preference.
