If you want to start your own business, it’s important to learn from those who came before you.

Anyone who’s ever been successful has always gone through a long road of trial and error.

And while this can never fully be avoided, at the very least you can avoid making the same mistakes they did in the past.

Here’s a few lessons from individuals who’ve found their own success in business.

  1. Build Something You Believe In

Tony Hsieh, founder of Zappos, shares this piece of advice. Don’t just go into entrepreneurship for the money.

If you simply want financial success, first off, you’ll never achieve the success you could have had following something you believed in, and, second, you won’t be as happy no matter how successful you get.

  1. Develop a Curiosity Overload

Kevin Harrington, a former Shark Tank judge, shares this piece of advice. Stay curious. Always look for new ideas, and continue learning late into your life.

Remember that you never know everything. The second you do, you stop learning!

  1. Just Put in the Time. The Rest Will Come.

While Bas Rutten, who shares this wisdom, is a martial artist rather than a businessperson, the wisdom still applies here.

Remember. The journey matters more than the destination, and practice matters more than just reaching your goal. There are no short cuts. You just have to keep putting in the work.

  1. Success early on can be the worst fate.

Robert Greene, the famous author of the 48 Laws of Power, shares this one. He says, focus on mastery before you focus on success.

Being successful early, counterintuitively enough, can hurt you in the long run. It makes you complacent, and puts you in a position of power perhaps before you’re mature enough to handle it.
