    My personal opinions. This is amazing life lesson even if you don’t want to be an entrepreneur, but rather a salary man or whatever. This isn’t about what makes an entrepreneur, but rather the ideals that happen to go with it. You can follow these steps and implement it into your regular lives, or if you want to be an entrepreneur it will surely be helpful. Five Strategies to embrace your inner entrepreneur Stop being likeable The perfect example of this is the presidency. He used the example of Barack Obama during his reelection. He has become the most powerful man in the planet. He was mid speech, but he only won with 51% of the vote. So that meant the other 49% believed that he was unfit for office, but guess what he was in office for 100% of people that voted. The higher you climb, the more people hate you.. If everyone around you thinks you’re doing a good job, something is wrong. Reframe your perception of disapproval, and it will empower you rather than drain you. Become Laughable As a kid we all never wanted to be the bud of a joke. Well is always that because they’re a bunch people that were laughed at, but they had the final laugh. You ever heard about the joke where a man bought 160 acres of an orange groove to create the happiest place on earth. Well Walt Disney and his heirs are laughing with 515 million people that have truly entered a wonderland. There is a whole list of famous people that were laughed at when they shared their ambitions. Trust me and the wise implications of Gandhi, people laugh at revolutionaries, extraordinary achievers, and icons… at first. So if you believe in your dreams, visions, or plan, don’t let snickering and finger point deter you. Define Success He used a very personal example for himself, when faced a shift on his definition of success. His whole life, he worked and worked to be able to impress his father. One day he got so wealthy he decided to buy his dad a new house with all the works. The first thing his father did when he saw his new house was point out the flaws. Darren was devastated because he finally thought he would be able to impress his father, but it didn’t work out. He thought he was unsuccessful because of that. In that moment he realized that he would have to create his own definition of success. Right after this moment he went around and interviewed 100’s of successful people. One interview that shook the core of his beliefs around success was Maria Shriver. Her answer led him to the idea that too often do we base our success on other people and not enough time trying to crave our own version of success. Simply speaking your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own voice, heart, and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Get a Grip This is another story that he read, that changed his opinion of the way people should live their lives. This article he read broke down some common stats around funerals. The article stated that you could live a long full life as a good citizen, a good friend, and a good human… Even then only an average of ten people would care enough to cry. This wasn’t the worst part. 50% of people will skip your burial and go to the afterparty because the rain. He then explains the 18-40-65 rules. That simply means that as an eighteen year old we constantly worry about everyone else’s opinion. Then when we’re 40 we only care about our loved ones feelings. Then the 65 rule which means we realize that no one is really thinking about us. Reduce Recovery Time On the journey to be an entrepreneur we all will face step backs, failure, and disappointment, and obstacles. These kinds of problems are mandatory, and yes, they hurt. You will get hurt over and over, what separates the freaks from the normals is how long it takes for you to get back up. It is in moments of great disparity where we realize our next steps and marks for achievement. Martin Luther King Jr said “The ultimate measure of a man is not where stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge.” We can either be the men who overcome insecurity and turmoil to reach the everest of achievement or we fall into the depths and be buried by the waves of mediocrity. You can either be a challenger or a conformer. The path gets dark, sometimes dark than others, but there will be few moments of light. Those moments will make it all worth it because comfort after adversity is triumph. Confucius said that “ Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but rather getting up every time we do.” If you want to get better, you have to push yourself. If you push yourself, you’re going to fail. What goes up must come down. If you’re not falling, then you’re not getting better. This philosophy is detrimental towards anyones growth. It is okay to fail, even better, it’s important to fail because it’s proof that you’re trying and you’re aiming to be better than your old self and the limits set by that. With that mindset setbacks and obstacles shouldn’t be moments of despair, but rather moments of celebration. – by /hq/terrorist_kid – –
