I love this quote from Thomas Edison.
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” – Thomas A. Edison
As entrepreneurs we are going to make mistakes, we are going to have failures, not just once but many times. The true success of an entrepreneur is to accept the failures, learn from them and keep moving forward.
Imagine what our lives would be like if Thomas Edison stop on his first attempt to make a light bulb. Or if the Wright Brothers didn’t keep trying to fly. Where would we be today?
I’m learning to accept the business decisions that I made that haven’t turned out as I wanted them to. To be honest about what happened so that I can learn from them and make better decision in the future.
Do you (or did you) have a business “failure” holding you back? What have you learnt from it? How are you moving forward?
