Mistakes aren’t fatal, they give you experience

Many of us, including myself once, look at mistakes like they are a plague to avoid. Mistakes aren’t fatal. Some mistakes are fatal. However, most mistakes are a blessing on your life. Mistakes teach lessons. Mistakes make you better at something than you were before.

Trust is earned, but without a leap of faith, it cannot be earned

Trust has meanings in many different forms. One of the most successful corporations in the world today is Google. Did you know Google started with the mantra “Don’t be evil”? It is one of the main reasons why people were so willing to trust their personal data to Google to this day. Google has grown up, and that statement no longer applies as they “quietly removes” the statement.

Luck is simply the willingness to take the chance on an opportunity.

Lucky guy. Amazing how many people have said that to me about various parts of my life. Amazing how untrue that feels sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I am thankful for all the things in my life. However, I have worked for many of them. I know what I have been through to get to where I am today.

Sitting there and hoping, will never bring your dreams into reality

Someone once told me, “Look at yourself in the mirror, does this look like a smart person? Someone who is successful?” I had no idea what he was talking about. If you become comfortable with who you are and how you do things, you usually have no idea how to be anything or anyone else.

Don’t be afraid to daydream

Sometimes the simplest solutions to the toughest problems come to you when you aren’t even looking at the problem. The solution comes because when you aren’t thinking about the problem, you are thinking of something completely different. Solution and problems are complementary, but one cannot arrive at the solution without thinking different from the problem
