Realise that rejection and failure make you stronger and smarter. Rejection and failure and rejection are not always “bad” things. Rejection and failure are a part of life and two things successful people encounter more often than those who are afraid to try.
I am part of a group of highly successful entrepreneurs, and one day we realised we all had past failures. For a long time I thought I was the only crazy guy with a failed projects. But I realised that sharing your failures makes you stronger not weaker but most importantly can help someone in the process.
During my 3rd transition which was when I left the military to once again become a civilian, I had the crazy idea of importing pineapples from Mauritius to distribute to the well known supermarket in the UK. This business nearly got me into bankruptcy. I learnt many lessons from this business, some of them includes never touch perishable items or never partner with large organisation, partner instead with their competitors instead.
Today when a young entrepreneur ask me how do I start a business or how to get investors, I tell them the 3 basic principles. Solve a problem with a solution that has a benefits. Problem-Solution-Benefits.
Interesting these basic principles has now become even more important in the workplace who is more keen to employ leaders with an entrepreneurial mindset-Problem-Solution-Benefits.
The winners of today are the losers of yesterday who never gave up.
