You have a fantastic idea. You were commuting one morning and it popped in your head. Or, maybe you've always wanted to chase this dream. It's so amazing, it's almost impossible for it to fail. Only it does. And there's one reason why.
You're going at it alone.
This lesson in particular resonates with me. It speaks to me because I've always made excuses in the past as to why I couldn't work with other people.
Here were some of the excuses I've made in the past:
I am not a people person
I'm too awkward to work with others
I don't click with anyone enough to work with them
I end up doing everything, anyway
I'd rather work alone, be left alone, and have my own space
I'm just an "introvert" (ha! like that excuses teamwork)
I can't find anyone that has the same work ethic
I won't be able to get these people on my team
I'm not as good as...
<insert any other ridiculous excuse here>
