Be Wrong - It is OK to be wrong.

Your teachers didn't think so, but life proves it.

It wasn't wrong when you fell multiple times as you learned to walk.

It wasn't wrong to fall off your bike as you learned how to ride it the right way.

Sir Isaac Newton was as wrong as a scientist could be about alchemy, and yet he is considered to be the greatest mathematician and scientist ever.

Steve Jobs was wrong about the Apple 3 and wrong about Next (his company after he left Apple), yet right about several other ideas he had.

Abraham Lincoln failed several times before he was elected President and his perseverance and willingness to fail save the Union.

Edison failed over 1,000 times as he failed forward to a solution for the incandescent light bulb.

Seth Goden says;

"The secret about being wrong isn't to avoid being wrong.

The secret is being "willing" to be wrong.

The secret is realizing that wrong isn't fatal.

The secret of great companies and people is their willingness to "not" be great along the way.

The desire to fail on the way to a greater success is the untold secret to success".

It is wrong to wait to get started.

It is wrong to wait for the perfect time.

There isn't an easy way, there is no shortcut to success except to start failing and learning from those failures as soon as you can.

Paint a picture of your vision for the future (include your passions) and get started "failing forward" as young as you can so you can start learning from being wrong.

 

Courage is not the absence of fear - it is the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
