As entrepreneurs, one of our greatest struggles is the fear of being wrong, making mistakes, and failing. If there was a way to attach an economic indicator to all of the businesses and business ideas that do not exist due to this fear, it would astound us.
This fear is a self-fulfilling prophecy. New business ideas are left to die for fear of trying and failing, and therefore, reducing the number of ideas that we ever put out into the world. We need to do the exact opposite in order to find success. More ideas and more ideas that fail is exactly how we find the diamonds in the rough.
