HOW TO MAKE 'FEAR' A TAILWIND INSTEAD OF A HEADWIND BY RICHARD BRANSON! (563 hits)

The Defiant Ones is an entertaining documentary about Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre – but it’s also filled with smart lessons for entrepreneurs. Their life stories and escapades are fascinating, but I was especially interested in the way they overcame failure time and time again. Whether it was fall outs with bands or business deals gone wrong, they learned from their mistakes every time – until they eventually created Beats and sold the headphones company to Apple.

Both Iovine and Dre are true original thinkers, who have remarkable talent. But this isn’t solely why they are so successful. It is down to perseverance, seeing obstacles as opportunities, and embracing fear as a fuel for change. One quote from Jimmy stood out for me: “Make fear a tailwind instead of a headwind.” Let fear give you the momentum to move forward – not hold you back.
