Dismissing Ideas

Sometimes we give up before we even try. We think to ourselves; I'm not an entrepreneur, I'm not that smart, I'm not this type of person, I'm not somebody that can do this. What if I fail? What if it doesn't work? We give up too soon. We fail before we even try. Our self-talk limits us. Friends and family discourage us from trying or following through. Well guess what your right, if you believe all that jargon, that is your future, these are your results. It doesn't have to be. You can push through. FAIL. TRY AGAIN. The most important part of this discussion is you don't give up before you start.

A life of trying, failure, experiences; is better than a life lived on the sidelines.

You choose.

What do you want?
What kind of life do you want to live?

The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick)

In this iconic bestseller, popular business blogger and bestselling author Seth Godin proves that winners are really just the best quitters. Godin shows that winners quit fast, quit often, and quit without guilt—until they commit to beating the right Dip.

Every new project (or job, or hobby, or company) starts out fun…then gets really hard, and not much fun at all. You might be in a Dip—a temporary setback that will get better if you keep pushing. But maybe it’s really a Cul-de-Sac—a total dead end. What really sets superstars apart is the ability to tell the two apart.

Winners seek out the Dip. They realize that the bigger the barrier, the bigger the reward for getting past it. If you can beat the Dip to be the best, you’ll earn profits, glory, and long-term security.
Whether you’re an intern or a CEO, this fun little book will help you figure out if you’re in a Dip that’s worthy of your time, effort, and talents. The old saying is wrong—winners do quit, and quitters do win.
