Most entrepreneurs who fail are the same people who succeed. Evan Williams failed with Odeo and came back with Twitter. Milton Hershey failed at 3 candy businesses before he found success. Jeff Bezos had several failed businesses before he launched Amazon.

We learn little from our successes and much from our failures.

The people who do the stuff in your list usually don’t even get started. Too busy dreaming. The people who start and fail are usually the ones who come back and try again. And again. Because they can’t NOT try again. It’s how they’re built.
