The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster - Chapter 2

Chapter 2 - Secure Your Shoulder Harness

  • Freak - "A person who is obsessed with or unusually enthusiastic about a specified interest"

  • Normal - "Conforming to the standard or the common type"

  • Which would you rather be?

  • If you put a crab in a bucket of crabs, they will not climb out because they will pull each other back in when one tries to escape

  • Your friends and family may do the same thing

2 Key Reasons

1. You make them look bad

  • "When you step outside the status quo, you become like a giant mirror that reflects the reality of their life back to them"

2. They simply aren't as corageous as you

  • "People don't resent you for being brave, they resent themselves for being afraid"

Embrace your freaky nature: 5 strategies

1. Stop being likeable

  • President Obama disliked by 49% of population

  • When you stop being like other people, they stop liking you

2. Become Laughable

  • Everyone laughed at Elon Musk, Oprah , Jet Blue, Walt Disney

3. Define Success

  • What does success mean to you? Write it down

4. Get A Grip

  • "50% of people wont go to your funeral if the weather is bad"

  • Only 10 people will cry at your funeral

  • Stop caring what other people think

  • 18-40-65 - At 18 we worry about what people think, at 40 we stop worrying, at 65 we realize no one was thing about us at all

  • Don't let people who don't matter, matter

5. Reduce Recovery Time

  • We all get knocked down. How quickly we get up is what separates us

  • 2 minute rule

  • If you're going to get better, you have to push yourself. If you push yourself, you're going to fall. If you're not falling, you're not pushing. Falling is part of getting better.
