4 Lessons Every Entrepreneur Should Remember

As entrepreneurs, we all have a desire to grow, improve, and be successful. That desire, however, fluctuates. Sometimes our fire burns low, while other times it rages and inspires us to better ourselves, no matter what barriers stand in the way.

As I make my way to events for entrepreneurs and leaders and try learn from others, I've been studying a few entrepreneurs. In trying to discover what pushes them to keep going, I found some advice that just about any entrepreneur could benefit from. Here are four lessons I've learned that every entrepreneur should consider living by:
 

 
 
1. Look within and tap into your inner greatness.
Sometimes, the only person standing between me and my best self is ... myself. My ego sometimes gets in the way of my creating the right habits and tapping into my true potential. It's great if you think you're good at what you do, but in reality, you can always be better.

It's key not let your ego get in the way and convince you that there isn't more to uncover within yourself. You're a living and ever-changing being, and there are always deeper truths to what you're capable of.

Failure is OK. The greatest entrepreneurs, leaders, and people failed at some point in their life, but if you consistently work hard, continue to learn, and surround yourself with great people, then you are set up to grow significantly as a person, and the best will come out of you.

2. Design your business around your passion.
My passion is driven by wanting to make things better. I'm continuously faced with challenges and barriers, but tackling them head-on always gives me fuel to keep going. For me, there really is no other way to approach business: Look at what's challenging you and see how you can use your passion to activate change.

“If you do the inner work of discovering your soul mission and getting heart-centered -- getting the inner game of entrepreneurship right first -- it allows you to get the outer actions in place to be very successful." So, find out where your struggles are and whether they inspire true passion within you. Chances are, they could lead to a very successful entrepreneurial endeavor.

3. Don't fear change - embrace it.
Change is scary. I try to be versatile, but if I'm being honest, I'm still scared of change. And maybe I always will be to some degree -- especially now that I have a wife and two awesome kids. Who wants to change when you have such a great family to come home to? That doesn't mean, however, that the members of my family want me to stay stagnant. Every day, they encourage me to reach my true potential, and reaching that potential requires constant change.

He knew they would come and wanted to be ready. I consistently see great leaders welcome the opportunity to adapt their companies to thrive and evolve when challenges come at them. It's not always how you grow in good times, but it's how you survive when things aren't great.

4. Find the teachable moments.
Teachable moments are the most valuable times to help yourself and the people around you. When a mistake is made, it's crucial that everyone takes the opportunity to learn from it, regardless of who actually messed up.

Nobody is perfect, so it's not about not making mistakes. It's about how you handle them and limit the chance of the same mistakes being made in the future. True leaders can identify those teachable moments and communicate them effectively to their teams to help everyone grow.
