The opinions of the employees of You are personal.
Ideas, ideas, ideas.
Everyone has an idea that they want to take off. Everyone thinks their ideas are the secret that humanity has not discovered.
I wish I could have felt the passion and intensity I had for Rich20Something when it was just an idea in my head. It was bubbly and full of excitement.
In my mind, I had no clear idea of what I wanted to do. He only knew that it meant “doing more” than he was, but he didn’t know what the next step was. I was feeling uncomfortable and if I’m 100 percent honest I was in a completely innocent place.
I thought that crystallizing the idea would make it easier to execute. I only imagined the “what”, the “how” should reveal itself. Quite funny, if I had known how difficult it was going to be over time, I would have said, “No, I’ll get through.”
Yes, I had heard many “successful” entrepreneurs say. If they had known what they now know about entrepreneurship, despite their perceived success, they would not have done it because it is difficult.
You do not believe me? Get on your way and find out.
It’s not about your idea. It never is. Your idea is absolutely 100 percent worthless. Please learn this. I am not trying to be meaningful or derogatory because I was there at some point not too far away. I can empathize, but you get no sympathy.
I did everything against some of my tribe members who did them to me today. I tried to reach out to the influencers of my idea and thought I could impress them. It hurt when the time of day came. No look. Not even a simple answer.
I remember seeing a video with Marie Forleo in which, when asked by a reader, she simply said, “Here’s an idea … Google it!”
I found her rude and didn’t help at all. “What’s wrong with these successful people?” I asked myself. Had they lost touch with the newcomers? Don’t you remember how they started out too? Where did they keep their secrets?
Six years on, this is one of my favorite lines. Google it! How the weather has changed.
A few years later, Ramit Sethi hired me and fired me because I lacked great attention to detail in every way. Late projects. Busy doing my own thing. Obsessed with my idea of Rich20. Etc. etc.
At the time he was angry, outraged, and angry.
But, you know what? I would have done exactly the same thing now if I had been in your position because my company is important to me and therefore the error rate is low. Life is coming, right? Wild.
I was bold. That’s for sure.
I haven’t noticed for years that this idea phase is so close to nothing if nobody cares about your idea. At this point, you will likely only get an inch on a soccer field.
Everyone wants a mentor. Personally, I connect with a particular influencer through articles they’ve written, or podcasts they’ve produced, or videos they’ve created. These people are talking to us. You get us.
I think these influencers care about us as much as they care about them. But here is an unfortunate truth. While you believe you are asking something unique and original, successful people are given variations of this question five times a day, around the clock, 365 days a week.
And it always ends with a permutation on how to start?
Check this again.
The starting part is the part where you can find out. And with all the resources out there, it’s the easy part. Start is nothing. There are cheap books and free articles to get you started.
Hell, there’s google! Thank you, Marie.
The hard part is pressing towards the end. And it’s something that no information can teach you. But you will use your resources to go through the first part. Why else would anyone give you part of their day?
Prove that you worry enough to try without being spoiled.
Trust me when I say that even the brightest people are clumsy in the dark. Do you really think Elon Musk knows what he’s doing? Sometimes yes. Mostly guessing between tons of balls. I mean his missiles go off for the love of God.
What comes after the idea phase?
First, the uncertainty phase.
Features: “Will it work?” And “No, that’s stupid.”
About 98% of people fall for it. That’s why successful people don’t want to help. Statistically, it’s a waste of time because most people will quit. Bad investment.
But there is more.
If you’ve already passed this, follow the ‘testing phase’ followed by the ‘phase almost works but not impressive’ followed by the ‘hell phase, it works better but I have no idea what I’m doing’ from the ‘ Bleed for It-Phase ‘, interspersed with the Cool! -Phase isn’t a big deal, but I could be bankrupt. “
(There are other phases as well. And I’m still in them).
Each of these phases can take an indefinite amount of time. And in every phase, more and more people fall as successful because, to be honest, sometimes it’s not fun. It is not.
So as long as I love and respect everyone (unless they gave me a reason not to). I don’t respect them as an entrepreneur just because they have a good idea.
It’s not about ideas.
Start with an idea. But this one isn’t impressive, special, or profound. ship is a world famous perspective with a mixture of stoicism, deception and creativity, but most of all it is catalyzed by action.
It’s supposed to be tough. As with any trip, you become a different person. You have to be better or you will be eliminated.
Evolve or die.
We create the suffering that is necessary to create something out of nothing, to avoid the unnecessary suffering of a life controlled by other people. There will be suffering and we won’t be in a Lamborghini.
Lots of people will work 9 out of 5. To be honest, I see merit in that. It’s predictable. You are solely responsible for yourself. It’s better in many ways.
For those of us who just can’t handle these limitations then just know that if you really want to play this game, you are going to be taking quite a risk in everything. Since your risk tolerance has to be relatively high, a natural pit is created between you and everyone else who has only been playing with ideas for years.
