Why entrepreneurs succeed…

Not because they have good ideas, or money, or the golden touch… but because if you get out there and do it, you are often exposed to a multitude of other opportunities. If you start talking and walking, you get places.

This is one of the best quotes I’ve come across that describes why starting a business is both exciting and rewarding. So start talking ideas, and make them happen.

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. “Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.”

W. H. Murray (often misquoted as Goethe).

We also came across this video this week, which blew our minds!

    I couldn’t agree more. Sometimes the most important (and most difficult) part of getting somewhere is getting started. You have to make the plunge at some point, and after you do you’re going to end up somewhere. Maybe not where you planned on ending up, and maybe even somewhere better. Like you said, sometimes the other opportunities you run into turn out even better than what you originally started with.
