Tara Hunt share a moving tale of entrepreneurship and taking the “unclear path”.
TL;DR: the 3 ticks of Entreprenuership:
- a belief that is contrary to what most others believe and accept.
- you are absolutely certain about your belief, you have no doubts, no waivering form your conviction
- your belief cannot be changed by strong arguments or proof that your belief is wrong.
a dream, a desire to make your vision happen:
- not only do you have the delusional vision, you want to make it real for yourself and others
- in terms of Entreprenuership, you take the necessary actions to move closer to the realization of your dream (unlike millions of others who have “a dream”, yet take no real action toward it’s manifestation).
- extraordinary boldness
- overstepped the boundary of accepted behavior without shame
- you do what needs to be done, without fear of what others will think, or say, or do to you
can it be taught? i think so, but it is a skill, so some will excel at it better than others. I would not want others to be turned away from trying it because it was said that is it intrinsic; that it can’t be taught. It is an experience you should try if you want to, then after your attempt, evaluate if it’s something you want to continue with. experiencing failure can be the best way to teach yourself.
