All successful entrepreneurs know that sometimes, you need to wipe the slate clean. They have learned that fear of the unknown is much better than extending the agony of an unsuccessful venture.
In fashion, you see this manifest when a designer gets too attached to a style (or worse, a warehouse of styles).
In law, you see this in legal writing. Can’t you just tell when an author strained too hard to make an unworkable argument work? We shake our heads and know that they should have deleted that section, and either started from scratch or left it out entirely.
Is there something in your life that you need to let go of? Do you know you need to make a change but are scared of what’s on the other side of the abyss? Are you worried that you’ll regret seeing if “the grass is greener?”
I am here to tell you to take a chance. If this post resonates with you in anyway, my guess is you are ready for a fresh start. What’s the worst case scenario? You fail? So what?!
Everyone knows that it is better to try and fail than to never have tried at all. And deep down inside, you know that true success, like Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Ralph Lauren, Guess?, Lady Gaga, Elton John, and Eminem type success, only comes after failure.
So go ahead. If you are thinking about starting fresh, I urge you to try it.
Give yourself a chance. Make a change. My guess is you will not only succeed, you will soar.
