After running a dozen or so business I realized that the only way to succeed is to do things differently then the way it was done. And what i learned is that if you do things differently, success will follow you like a shadow and you won’t get rid of it.
So that’s what i did. People doubted me because they didn’t do what i would do. It’s a matter of finding out what is it that industry does and identifying the opportunity to how to do it differently and then being enough of a risk taker to actually do it differently. People doubted me because nobody thought of doing it the way i did. They were satisfied with the status quo and I’m never satisfied with the status quo.
I look at every business and ask: How long can this last? How can I identify the status quo and change it?
Don’t be satisfied with status quo. Have guts to approach things differently.
