Live and Die By Your Own Decisions

Be You, Including Your Mistakes

There’s this idea today that you have to fit a certain mold. That to reach a certain level of success, you have to be like the person who has that success. This is a notion that I completely reject.

Why do I reject it?

People want to do business with real people.

Not this robotic version of a man, but a person who has made mistakes, has fallen and then gotten up and learned from those falls. Success does not look like a straight line, it is not a perfect ladder, but a zigzag from failure to failure that is always moving forward.

How many times have you heard a great success story in which there were no failures along the way. Take Elon Musk for example, he’s been on the verge of bankruptcy multiple times but believed enough in himself and his ideas that he’s completely changing multiple industries.

Never trust somebody who hasn’t fallen and gotten up multiple times.
