Are You an Entrepreneur Struggling with Fears of Failure? Here’s A Nice Sound Bite from Tony O Elumelu To Encourage You

“During a session at the recently concluded World Economic Forum in Davos, entrepreneur and philanthropist Tony Elumelu shared some great advice for all entrepreneurs confronted by failure, thus:

“The world celebrates only success, but it’s important to teach people about how you overcame failure, about resilience, about tenacity, that brings success. An entrepreneur’s path is not linear, it’s up and down, but at the end of the day when you plot it, you see upward movement.

Failure is a given and there are specific tools: One, you should be very resilient. Two, you must think long term, because if you think long term, short term failures wont set you back so much.

And most importantly, be laser focused and know that success will come at the end of the day if you are focused and tenacious.”
