Mike Baur On Failure and Success

Mike Baur is a businessman and a successful entrepreneur. He heads the Swiss Startup Factory, a company that is designed to help out people who are looking to start their own successful businesses. He says that there are a number of rules that he thinks are crucial if you want to achieve long lasting success.

The first rule is that you need to build trust. Building trust is essential for every business. If you can not build trust, people will be in no hurry to give over their hard earned money for your service. At that point, it will not matter how many cool slogans you are using for your marketing campaigns. All that will matter is whether your customers trust you enough to give you their money in return for their services.

Next, you have to be fearless. People who are afraid will not get anywhere in life. The reality is that many people do not get ahead in life because they are afraid of doing so. They may want to be successful, but they are afraid of trying out new things. They are afraid of doing the things that are necessary in order to be successful. They think that if they do the things that they need to do, they might not succeed. They do not want to fail. The reality is that you can not be afraid to fail. You have to change your mindset so that you look at failure in an entirely different light. Failure is not something that should be avoided. Every successful person knows that. Failure is something that you should embrace. You should erase the word failure from your dictionary. Instead, you should replace it with the word learning opportunity. That is what failures really are. They are opportunities for growth. They let you find out what does not work so that you can do what does work the next time around. There is no way to avoid failure in life. Nobody ever went through life without failing once. If that is your mentality, you will quit as soon as you see the first signs of failure. That is a horrible idea, and it is very sad because people do quit for no reason at all other than they feel bad about failing. That is why you should be happy if you fail so that you try again.
