Okay, I’ll admit, this is my eighth version of this post. My first for Forbes – I wanted it to be worthy of your reading time, smart and exciting. During the third draft I was talking to myself (unkind words). By draft five I was really wondering if the author knew what he wanted to say. Version 7 brought me back to one voice and the realization I was practicing normal behavior: trying instead of doing.

Before starting today I made one commitment: twenty minutes or less then press publish. So here we go.

“If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.” –William Arthur Ward.

Forbes has always been “Devoted to Doers and Doings” and much has changed since its magazine launch. Of course there are good things: we’ve moved into an exponential, abundant world. Business cycles are faster, communication channels proliferate, and the spirit of entrepreneurship remains strong.  Being self-made seems more achievable and carries great weight all around the world.

It’s estimated there will be 100 million new companies launched in 2019. That’s a lot of founders – dreamers seeking relevance, success, and fortune. Yet many will fail. Why? Because failure is the road to success. As much as we’d like to find a short-cut, entrepreneurs know (or will find out) their real job is to get good at overcoming setbacks. Entrepreneurs need to go beyond thinking and must keep doing. They need to push for more. They need to fall down and get back up. They have to repeat often.

If you are having success, it’s still hard to stay in place. The pace of change is so fast, and people want more. Forbes recently launched Forbes8 – an app and network in service to helping entrepreneurs be better. It takes Forbes’s business stories and inspiration into an AI-assisted mobile experience. It uses modern tools to customize video playlists – presenting video tips from others who may have had similar challenges.

There was a Forbes8 kick-off event in New York recently with guest speaker Eric Thomas. ET’s advice was powerfully delivered (quick inspirational story is recapped on LinkedIn here).  At one point homeless, Dr. Thomas motivates millions through his talks, videos and books. In short, success is hard but anyone can be more successful if its wanted enough.

So in a world where its easier to create new products, connect with customers, sell your expertise – are you ready to be great? Are you treating your setbacks as stepping stones – as motivation to keep you going forward? Will you become the best version of yourself, and realize your dreams?
