Every business’s success revolves around taking risks
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 23, 2012
Rock The Post founder, Tanya Prive, jumped out of a plane to, metaphorically speaking, display the frustration and emotions entrepreneurs go through when starting up a business. The purpose of the video was to inspire young entrepreneurs in taking the risk of launching a venture and breaking through the barriers holding people back from living a life they love.
Starting a business is a challenging journey. Going back to basic entrepreneur training 101, it’s all about the 4 Ps: Passion, Patience, Persistence and Play. First, people have to love what they are doing, as there is more bad days than good, when starting your business. Second, the passion will fuel the persistence and patience until people get the results that are set out to achieve. From Tanya’s perspective, it is important people work in projects that they love. “There is no such thing as an overnight success story, our team spent almost 13 months to get Rock The Post up and running, and still have a lot of work to do.”
Every business’s success revolves around taking risks. As the saying goes, “No risk, no gain.” Successful entrepreneurs know and are prepared to make those difficult decisions. An effective entrepreneur is the one who is willing to lead the way, where no path has been forged before and is confident that their choices will take the business to greater heights.
Similar to jumping out of a plane, the emotions that arise when starting a business are equally terrifying. It is all about taking the leap of faith, trusting the process, most importantly, as the process is what yields success, and not an enlightened moment of brilliance.
Highly successful people often say, if people are right 51% of the time, that means they are ahead of the game. So making mistakes is actually not a bad thing, but learning from them quickly is crucial. Trusting instincts and listening to common patterns in the feedback received from trusted sources is an important component to factor in the mix.
