Do you know the story of the Wright Brothers?  I don’t know it in all the details, but what I do know is VERY applicable to succeeding in your own business.

At that time, numerous people were caught up with the idea that people could fly, including the Wright Brothers.  But they had competition – some big companies were also trying to figure this out.

Wright_Brothers_in_1910So how could the Wright Brothers compete with big companies?  They had a secret. . . .

So here we have the WBros out there making one after another after another after another of these rattle trap machines that didn’t work –  Failures . .  or were they?  They could have gotten frustrated and thrown in the towel many times.  But they didn’t . . .  Why??

They had a belief and were highly focused on making it happen.  So what was their secret weapon?

Taking Massive Action . . .

Have you ever heard the saying that it is impossible to steer a parked car?  The WBros proved this time and time again to be correct.

So what about Planning, you might ask.  This story validates the notion that planning is usurped by action.  Yes, planning is important.  But it can be carried too far. . .

Have you ever found yourself using planning as procrastination?  I know I have.  Planning is a good thing, but not when used as an excuse.

The WBros planned, but they did it quickly and moved on immediately to action – The Key To Their Success!

A Couple of Don’ts To Remember:

  • Don’t try to figure it all out first!
  • Don’t beat yourself up!  Learn and Move On . . .


Having problems wrapping your mind around this?  You are not alone.  Not wanting to make a mistake is a remnant of the Employee Mentality that we were all raised with.  This is a completely different way of thinking, and may be difficult to accept and do.

When working for someone, you can’t make mistakes.  Your future with the company and your pay depend on you doing a good job.  It is completely different when running your own business.  For more insights on this, see my blog post on Employee Mentality.

Failure is an Information-Gathering Event.  REMEMBER THIS!
