These are exciting times. Every day there is new information that emerges that either can act as a ladder and take us up or can act as a snake and pull us down. As we navigate these exciting and uncertain times, we need to remember the age-old adage: fortune favors the brave.
Being brave is not about being fearless, but rather about facing your fears and taking action despite them. We need to be willing to step outside our comfort zone and confront the challenges and uncertainties that are part of every startup’s journey. it is important for us as a team to show 2 core qualities… Gumption and Perseverance.
Gumption is a term that is often used to describe a person’s ability to take initiative and act with courage and determination in the face of adversity.
While gumption is about taking initiative and being willing to act boldly, perseverance is about staying the course even when faced with setbacks and obstacles. Without one the other is like a lion without teeth … hardly a lion that can be brave!
In today’s rapidly changing world, where the future can often seem uncertain and unpredictable, having both gumption and perseverance can be especially important. The ability to take risks and make tough decisions can help us navigate uncertainty and adapt to changing circumstances. But at the same time, we need to persevere toward our long-term goal and stay focused and committed as things get difficult.
For us to win we need to embrace uncertainty. The future may seem daunting, but with gumption and perseverance, we can overcome any challenge.
Let’s step outside our comfort zone… Let’s face our fears… Let’s take action toward our goals… Let’s be brave!
