Do or do not, there is no try

12 Jan

I’ve been doing some soul searching lately about what it truly means to be an entrepreneur.  It means accepting that you, yes you, ceteris paribus, are solely responsible for your own success.  In addition, it means that you commit yourself to starting your own enterprise.  This commitment requires faith and belief in your ability to not only create, but to assemble a team that can help execute your own plan for business success.

Yoda, one of the great prophets of our time, said it best:

“Do or do not, there is no try.”

Think about it. We have all come up with great business ideas and inventions that can serve to benefit the lives of others while benefiting our own, yet more often than not we choose to avoid taking the plunge into actually going through with it. The real genius of an idea comes not from the idea itself, but from having the guts to go through with implementing the idea in a systematic way, that makes business sense.

The great entrepreneur Nolan Bushnell once said that a real entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.  So if you have an idea that you truly believe in, get out there and make it happen.  Don’t delay, be bold, and go for glory!

Always going for glory!
