If you are venturing into the heady and exciting world of entrepreneurship then you cannot but agree with this bold statement. In the future, the degree of your entrepreneurial success can be measured by just how many times you are able to say; yes, yes and yes. Yes, I can complete this project on time. And yes, I can make this amount of money this month. And yes, I can even prepare my own custom product labels. And no matter how many times you have acted in the affirmative, count up the number of times you have said no to yourself.
When this has happened during the early days of your entrepreneurial venture, never despair, and of course, never, ever, ever give up. Because this is a good time for introspection. While being self-critical, never harshly or unreasonably, mind you, and always with realistic expectations, you think clearly about why you turned down another learning opportunity and also about what did not work well before, for all those times you did say yes.
The world’s greatest entrepreneurs, past and present, are very fond of saying this. You can only learn from your mistakes. And in order to achieve long-term success, they have insisted, you need to make a bunch of mistakes. They put it so bluntly as if it was the easiest thing in the world. Many of you shudder at this, shaking your heads left, right, sideways. But they are right, you know. And learning how to handle new projects and how to use the tools needed is just so easy too, you know.
Learning how to custom design your own product labels, with all the correct online tools and a graphic design team standing by, can be a richly rewarding experience.
