Always be willing to change course—in other words, be flexible and open-minded. According to Einstein, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” So, if you’ve been on the same course—doing your business the same way for a while now, and you keep hitting a stopping wall, but you keep on trying again, without learning and changing a thing, then perhaps, you’re really insane.
Einstein’s words. Not mine.
If your current approach doesn’t work, perhaps it’s high time to admit it and find a new, intelligent, and more informed approach. There’s absolutely no shame in failing and admitting it, except if that failure was caused by your unwillingness to learn and change.
Successful entrepreneurs don’t have all the answers.
The difference between successful entrepreneurs and everyone else is that they accept that they don’t know everything. They admit that they don’t have all the answers, and they’re willing to make the necessary changes. While everyone else, they’re just trying to prove that they are always right, and will convince themselves that their way is the only way through.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing, so I admit that I know nothing.
