“Before Defining Failure We Need To Discuss What Success Is…”
I happened to stumble upon this article entitled How Entrepreneurs Become Visionary Leaders… it’s short but I think entrepreneur Naveen Jain makes some good points.. peep the excerpt below and feel free to read the short article he wrote for Forbes as well:
Sometimes we never see what failure is and often fail to recognize it. Before defining failure we need to discuss what success is. Success is not about how much money we have in the bank but it’s about how many peoples’ lives we have impacted through it. Success is experienced when we do things which are never done before. If we have to make things work, if we have to impact hundreds and millions of people we have to do things differently. If we look at the problem as an infrastructural problem we cannot impact it because it requires a lot of effort. When we convert this problem into a knowledge problem we experience a lot of changes thereby starting to impact the environment on a positive perspective.
