我的创业点子源于2007年,当时我在澳大利亚经常从事沉船潜水工作。我一直担心碰到鲨鱼。但干这行遇到这种事在所难免,后来我遇到一群公牛鲨,本来我以为自己会被吓死,结果安然无恙。

 

My entrepreneurship idea started in 2007, I was working for shipwrecks diving. I often worried to meet shark. However, we can not avoid this situation in this job. Till I meet a group of bull shark, at the beginning I believe that I will be shock dead at that time, the result is safe.
  
相反,那对我来说是一个重要的转折点,我的创业点子也源于此。我那时意识到“恐惧是莫名其妙的”。很多人都有一些莫名的恐惧,并因此无法放开手脚、活出自我。最大的恐惧之一就是害怕失败。通过以往的经历我意识到我必须要拥抱失败,并且失败让我成为一个更出色的创业者。我想说:铁矿石在熔炉里烧灼,但炼成的钢刀锋利无比。

 

In the opposite, for me it is a very important turning point, my entrepreneurship idea start from here. At that time, I realized that “the fear is indescribable”. Most of people have some strange fear, and then they can not open their mind and thinking to be themselves. The one of biggest fear is to scare failure. Through the experience in the past time, I realized that I need to accept and hold failure, and then failure will make me to be an excellent entrepreneur. I want to say that : iron ore burned in the smelting furnace, but it creates a sharply sword.
  
我经常通过以下五种方式尝试失败:


I usually through five methods to try the failure below:


1
、找到并接受最大的批评者

 

1. Finding and accepting the biggest critic

 

有一次我向一名投资者推销。后来发现他对我的演讲稿已经失去了兴趣。后来我直接问他:“嗨,哥们儿,我们别谈投资的事儿了。要不,你索性告诉我我为什么这么差劲算了,行不?”说完之后,我从他那里获得了一些非常好的建议,从他的角度探讨我的公司如何改进,以及这种坦诚的互动多么重要。别害怕提出问题出在哪儿。即便这种滋味很难接受。这只会让你更强。

 

One time I even did promotion with a investor. After I done my presentation, I found that he had not interesting about my information. And that, I asked him directly: “ hi, brother, let us leave the things of investment. Why do not you told me directly why my presentation is so bad, ok ?”. After that, I gained some excellent advises, from his orientation to discuss how to improve my company, and important communication with straight-out. Do not afraid to ask what the problem is. Even if this feeling is really hard to accept, it will make you stronger.

、让一切都失败


2.  Let everything to be failure
 

 
我把自己的工作描述成“首席破坏官”。我的工作就是努力打破公司所做的一切。我的目标就是:发现漏洞,发现弱点,找出让事情变得更好的办法。破坏不是坏事。我对这种破坏试验如此着迷,以至于我对我的生活也进行了A/B测试:我戒掉咖啡、戒掉、酒精、戒掉女友、并且衡量每个变量(以及缺乏某个变量)给生活带来的影响。

 

I describe my job as “the chief of breaker”. My job is to break everything what company have done. My target is: to find the leak, to find weak, and then searching good methods to make situation better. Breaking is not a bad thing. I fall in the test of break, even I am doing A/B test in my life: I quit coffee, alcohol, girlfriend and compare every variable which could influence my life.
  
3
、从上到下的失败

3. From up to down in failure

 
把对待失败的思维方式传播到公司每个级别,以及团队中的每个成员。我会在全公司内制定失败目标,分配失败任务。

 

I disseminate the thinking way of facing failure in the every level of company and every member in the group. I will make the failure target and separate the task of failure.


  
4
、热爱那些恨你的人
  

4. Love people who hate you


逆境是一种很好的激励。对我来说最好的事情就是小时候经常别人欺负。这跟本文有什么关系呢?简而言之,几年来每当我想起这些恃强凌弱的人来,坦白说我的想法只有一个:你的心理医生可能不认为这是一种可行的策略,但逆境的确可以缔造有潜力的创业者。

 

Adverse situation is a good positive way. To me the best thing is that people bullied you in the childhood. What is the relation with this article? Briefly speaking, when I recalled these bully in these years, I only have one notion: you psychologist did not agree with that it is a good strategic, but adverse situation could create potential entrepreneur.
  
5
、让失败由大化小,更好地接受小失败

 

5. Let failure influence from huge to small, and accept small failure well
  
实际上就是“把结果想到最坏,然后尽可能把大失败划分成很多微不足道失败”。接着你就可以化解大失败

 

In fact, it is “imaged very bad result and try to separate big failure to lots of failure as possible as you can”. And then, you can deal with big failure.
