1) Yes we can! Mindset 2) Problem first, not product. 3) Think narrow, not broad. 4) Ask for cash, ride the float. 5) Beg, borrow (but never steal) 6) Instead of asking permission, ask for forgiveness.

Be the person who breaks the cycle. If you were judged, choose understanding. If you were rejected, choose acceptance. If you were shamed, choose compassion. Be the person you needed when you were hurting, not the person who hurt you. Vow to be better than what broke you-to heal instead of becoming bitter so you can act from your heart, not your pain.

We are mistaken if we have a lifestyle guided by either/or logic. We think either we must conquer the challenge before us or we will be failures. We think either our loved ones must meet our needs or they do not love us. We think either we must be perfect or we are unacceptable. Often life’s answers exist in the in-betweens.

O vídeo "6 Tips on Being a Successful Entrepreneur" de John Mullins no TED fala sobre os seis mindsets contraintuitivos que empreendedores de sucesso possuem, usando histórias de empreendedores reais para ilustrar cada ponto. Aqui está um resumo dos principais pontos: 2:00 "Yes, We Can": Contrariando a sabedoria convencional de focar apenas em competências centrais, Mullins destaca a importância de adotar desafios fora da zona de conforto, ilustrado pela história de um empreendedor brasileiro que expandiu sua empresa para novos domínios tecnológicos. 4:07 Foco no Problema, Não no Produto: Mullins argumenta que empreendedores de sucesso identificam e resolvem problemas reais ao invés de se concentrarem em produtos, exemplificado por um empreendedor que desenvolveu uma liga metálica especial para evitar que pinças cirúrgicas grudassem em tecidos humanos. 6:42 Pensar de Forma Estreita, Não Ampla: A sabedoria convencional sugere mirar em mercados grandes, mas Mullins ressalta o valor de focar em nichos específicos. Ele usa a fundação da Nike, que inicialmente se focou em criar calçados melhores para corredores de longa distância, como exemplo. 8:50 Pedir Dinheiro e Utilizar o Fluxo de Caixa: Destacando a importância do fluxo de caixa para empreendedores, Mullins fala sobre como a Tesla arrecadou fundos vendendo carros antecipadamente, um contraste com a abundância de caixa em grandes empresas. 11:08 Emprestar, Pegar Emprestado, Mas Não Roubar: A história de "Go Ape", um negócio de aventuras em copas de árvores no Reino Unido, ilustra como empreendedores podem utilizar recursos existentes (neste caso, árvores de terras públicas) para construir seus negócios sem necessidade de grandes investimentos iniciais. 13:04 Agir Sem Pedir Permissão: Mullins discute como empreendedores, como os fundadores da Uber, muitas vezes avançam sem buscar aprovação prévia, uma abordagem que pode ser crucial quando as regulamentações existentes não contemplam novas ideias ou modelos de negócios. Mullins encerra desafiando os ouvintes a identificar quais desses mindsets já possuem, quais podem aprender e como aplicá-los para superar desafios e transformar ideias em realidades bem-sucedidas.

❤ I believe this is the greatest gift we can give each other as human beings, this sacred field of unconditional friendship where we allow each other to be imperfect. It is the space in which we give up trying to fix each other and instead listen with our entire being. It is the space in which true relaxation can happen, where the frazzled nervous system can breathe a sigh of relief… -Matt Licata❤️

00:00 🚀 Lynda Weinman's entrepreneurial journey illustrates counterconventional mindsets in entrepreneurship. 02:00 💡 "Yes, we can" mindset encourages entrepreneurs to embrace opportunities beyond their core competencies. 04:09 🎯 Entrepreneurs prioritize solving problems over focusing solely on product innovation. 07:10 🎯 Focusing on a narrow target market, as exemplified by Nike's early strategy, can lead to significant success. 09:59 💰 Entrepreneurs like Elon Musk prioritize cash flow and leverage it to drive innovation and growth. 11:10 🌳 Entrepreneurs like Tristram and Rebecca Mayhew demonstrate the effectiveness of borrowing resources and negotiating innovative partnerships. 13:36 🛠 Entrepreneurs often bypass seeking permission and instead focus on execution to drive innovation forward.

These questions are worth asking yourself, based on the seven mindsets shared here: 1) Which of these mindsets are embodied in you? 2) Which others can you learn? 3) Which can you teach to those with whom you work? 4) Is there one that you can apply to a challenge you're facing today?

You need to listen more closely young man if you want to make something of yourself. The point is entrepreneurs think outside of traditional business reasoning which allows them to achieve success and disrupt major industries. Each of the 6 tips supports this point.

John Mullins really hits the nail on the head about challenging conventional wisdom. For entrepreneurs, remember that timing your market entry during a 'trigger event' can drastically increase your chances of success, as it creates immediate demand for your solution. Plus, leveraging existing platforms can give you a head start instead of building from scratch.

In the video, John Mullins discusses six unconventional mindsets that entrepreneurs can adopt to succeed in business: 1. "Yes, we can": Embracing opportunities outside of core competencies, even if they seem unrelated, can lead to innovative solutions and business growth. 2. "Problem-first, not product-first logic": Focusing on solving problems rather than developing products can lead to more impactful and successful ventures. 3. "Think narrow, not broad": Narrowly targeting specific market segments with tailored solutions can lead to more effective marketing and higher customer satisfaction. 4. "Asking for the cash, and riding the float": Prioritizing cash flow and finding creative ways to finance ventures can lead to financial stability and growth. 5. "Beg, borrow, but please, please don’t steal": Being resourceful in acquiring necessary assets and resources, even if it means borrowing or partnering with others, can lead to successful ventures. 6. "Don't ask for permission, ask for forgiveness": Taking calculated risks and forging ahead without seeking permission can lead to breakthrough innovations and competitive advantages. Mullins uses examples from successful entrepreneurs like Arnold Correia, Jonathan Thorne, Philip Knight, Bill Bowerman, Elon Musk, Tristram Mayhew, and Rebecca Mayhew to illustrate each mindset. He encourages viewers to embrace these unconventional approaches to entrepreneurship to overcome challenges and achieve success in their ventures.
