Many aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners have suffered a setback or two. And many more have made failed attempts at entrepreneurship altogether. Some go on to try again while others feel defeated. Many of you have heard that old saying, “That which does not kill you, only makes you stronger.” There’s definitely some truth to that – even when it comes to business.
Barry Moltz, Entrepreneur, Author and Motivational Speaker, is our featured guest in this Episode of The Small Business Trends Radio. Barry explains how to thrive through the cycle of success and failure and he’ll show you how to gain the skill of true business confidence that determines which of us succeed in the long run.
Here’s a sampling from the show:
- When a failure takes place — you may be temporarily paralyzed – but you have to “bounce” back. Taking action, moving in a different direction and making money is one way to do that. The more actions taken to get to a new place, the more success you’ll have overcoming it. Allow yourself an ample amount of time to recover from the setback, then make a conscious decision to pull yourself out of it and begin to take action.
- Take control of your thoughts — and develop skills to take charge of how you’re feeling by being action oriented and using mentors and friends to lean on and encourage you.
- Downsize your dreams — and strive for achievement by learning to focus on one task at a time. Multi-tasking doesn’t grant much productivity and setting interim goals will help you achieve your “grand vision” faster and define the path to reach it more clearly – one step at a time.
As humans, we all make mistakes and failures. Steve, our show’s co-host, gave a good example of that during the show when he pointed out that even as infants, we all fail at our first footsteps before finally getting it right.
So are you ready to begin to successfully overcome a failure and/or prepare yourself for the next one? You can find a review of Barry’s new book “Bounce” here and listen to his full interview by clicking the red and yellow player below.
