What is failure?

If I say one thing more often than anything else when I teach entrepreneurship, it would have to be, “Fail Fast!”  When you bring something new to the market, the reality is that you will probably not get it right.   The quickest, surest way to find out exactly what you are doing wrong is to try.  So what is failure?

  • Failure is the path to success.
  • Failure is inevitable.
  • Failure is a temporary state.
  • Failure is courage.
  • Failure is a step closer.
  • Failure is the previous version of an idea.

Don’t be afraid to fail.  Be excited to get the first failures out of the way in order to get that much closer to future successes.
