This cloud is piled up with the mistakes I have made, opportunities I have embraced, and the lessons I have learned from failures, rising up again, and from success.\n

Mistakes to Sabotage Your
my entrepreneurial journey was just dawned, a profound cloud
of thoughts conjures up in my mind. This cloud is piled up with
the mistakes I have made, opportunities I have embraced, and
the lessons I have learned from failures, rising up again, and
If you are a human, mistakes are inevitable. At times, you might
not get a chance to avoid them, but you will definitely have the
power to not to make them again. What often induces a smile on
my face is the very hint of sentience that always keeps me from
making the same mistake twice.
In the course of running a digital marketing company for three
consecutive successful years as the CEO, I have understood that
success does not happen overnight. It’s a long-run. People who
take it as a sprint and exert to hit the ribbon so soon, often end
up losing all the motivation. In this guide, I am going to do what
other entrepreneurs often don’t. I am going to unfold my
your mistakes and how to distance yourself from them again.
“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”
- this thoughtful quote by renowned scientist Albert Einstein
appears encouraging and it is true as long as one don’t take it
upside down. As long as you are employing your mistake as a
learning packet & precaution indicator, you are strolling on the
Otherwise, you will find yourselves among those back-seat
personality judges, who leave no stones unturned to find out
financial or other reasons behind the success of a particularly
high achiever while completely avoiding all their hard-work,
struggle, and perseverance. Let’s have a look at the mistake you
1. Wasting Your Time to Change Someone Else
I have seen people wasting their time and money in changing
other people. I laugh at them. Personality change is a
your friend is walking on a path that will lead to a barren land
and if you really care about them, then simply do a research and
approach your friend with your thought-suitcase.
Manifest them with data, facts, ideas, strategies, and everything
you have researched to help them realize that what’s wrong,
why should they and how should they change, and what good
this change will bring in their life. This way is less-nudgy and
will appear like more of caring and thoughtful friendly effort.
2. Sowing the Same Seed and Expecting Different Fruits
If your efforts are not showing any hopeful colors after
continuously being repeated, you probably need to change your
direction. This very concept applies to all segments of a
business. If you are not getting any reverts on your emails? Try
adding a personal touch and changing the format. If visitors are
dumping your website? Try reducing the loading speed and
enhancing the design appeals.
stick with it. Remember, old ways won’t open new doors.
3. Overlooking Research & Jumping Over Documentation
An anticipation of outcomes before taking the next step is
crucial. Without a thorough research, it’s almost impossible to
anticipate the ramifications of your action. Big achievers and
leaders stand still until there’s a well-researched report are in
their hand. This principle of research applies everywhere be it
Documentation comes next. In the corporate landscape, things
just don’t happen in the air. You need presentations, documents,
and a planned strategy before you set up a meeting. Words that
flow as you speak fade away but once they are written, they
don’t repeat them. For me, boosting my digital marketing
service to a ‘celebrated’ status wasn’t a cake walk. Sometimes,
we would work night shifts. Sometimes, when there was no one
available to take client’s call, I handled that all by myself and
even packed a few good deals in my bag.
In these 3 years, I have realized that no matter how hard you try,
how many sacrifices you make, and what level of strategic
planning you pull off, certain shortcomings will be there. While
avoiding the harsh part isn’t an option, learning is the only thing
you can embrace.
