“Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.” –Bill Gates
Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft Corporation, is the wealthiest American and the second wealthiest person in the world. As CEO and Chief Software Architect, Gates is renowned as a leader in the development of the personal computer. He is worth $66 billion and regularly makes charitable donations through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. His quote shows that failure may be inevitable, and you can only learn and make changes by losing first. If you are humble and work diligently toward your goals, success will follow.
“Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, you are usually right.” –Henry Ford
Founder of Ford Motor Company and engineering entrepreneur, Henry Ford manufactured the first affordable automobile in the United States. With the Model T, Ford transformed the industry forever. His view on success comes from your state of mind. If you believe in yourself and in your business, you will achieve your goals. On the other hand, if you do not think your business will work out, it probably won’t. Attitude is everything and determines the outcome of your company.
“Capital isn't that important in business. Experience isn't that important. You can get both of these things. What is important is ideas.” –Harvey Firestone
Firestone Tire and Rubber Company was created by Harvey Firestone. He began by making tires for carriages and later became a global leader in rubber tire manufacturing.

You cannot be afraid of failure. Even after Mrs. Fields Bakeries filed for bankruptcy, the company emerged and became successful once again. If you are fearful or anxious, your amazing business idea will never get off the ground and really become something.
