Do you have a fear of winning?
One of the best enlightened serial entrepreneurs (and USAF Veteran to boot) that are around today that has changed my views of being an entrepreneur is Steve Blank. He has a great blog post below that I’m going to translate into the Christian view from the Bible.
Run your race!
What attracts me to his comments and others is that I’m always on the lookout for wisdom in the real world. When I find something, I go back to my Bible and see how the wisdom relates to what the Bible has to say about the subject. The more good wisdom I correlate in the Bible, the more it solidifies what I need to learn and engrain in what I do daily.
His comments were about the differences how the “fear of failure” is viewed between both startups and corporations. While the words may be the same, how it is defined in the context of a startup or corporation changes the behaviors of those doing the work. It is the behaviors that make the difference.
