Let me explain the use of the mindset in the entrepreneurship situation with a metaphor.
Entrepreneurship is very hard, but it is also very easy. The mindset is the key. Let me explain.
Question on Quora:
How did Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg make very successful companies from the first time?
It is all their second or third time.
Elon Musk made first product and sold it at age 12.
Zuckerberg made products at age 17.
Get into business in this “soft” manner and learn the mindset. Then your “second time” will be more fruitful and many will think that was your first time.
Entrepreneurship is in fact very very easy.
If you have a car and wants to get a road trip - buy some fuel and start drive.
Most people THINK too much. They research the place they want to go, they try hard to upgrade their car, they try to get a solar panel installed so they can have coffee while they are in the wild, and they worry about clean fuel and buying lots of it.
In the end, they never start.
While a guy named Musk driving a beat up car with 20 gallons of gas is already 300 miles away.
Start. Start experimenting and experiencing. Start learning.
Ideas happen after you start. Many ideas are waiting for you.
You don't "start a company" or "begin doing business". You FIND business to do and find your niche to win.
Start, so you beginning learning. Entrepreneurship is experimenting and building, not sure thinking.
Entrepreneurship is to unlearn schools teaching, AND learn the rest that schools choose not to
teach you. Entrepreneurship is 3 parts attitude and 1 part aptitude.
