There is power in believing in your own potential, as Carol Dweck describes in her TED Talk below. The Power of Yet is the idea that any one of us is capable of improving, growing, learning, and doing better. In other words, the things that we can’t do, or the things that we don’t understand, are simply things we can’t do… yet, and don’t understand… yet.
As entrepreneurs and as human beings, it’s easy to compare ourselves to others we view as “successful”. If we don’t have what we perceive others to have, we feel less-than. But just because we aren’t where we want to be, doesn’t mean that we’ll never get there.
Don’t give up. You’re still learning, and growing, and achieving.
You’re not done yet.
