Today’s Biz Wisdom Bomb comes from Demetrius Mensah, a brilliant young entrepreneur that I had the pleasure of meeting last month.

Demetrius is the Founder of Groundbreaker Customs, a custom shoe design company that designs and creates products that are a reflection of individual style.

Demetrius also recently started the Progression Movement where he offers growth, confidence & positivity through relating, helping & leading by example.

Demetrius will be sharing some rock solid guidance on ‘Coming to Terms’ with what it takes to succeed in business and in life.

The important takeaways from todays discussion are:

  • Embrace your past. Everything that’s happened in the past, even if you see it as a blunder or mistake, has helped mold and shape you into the person you need to become. And chances are, the things you view as mistakes have probably influenced someone in a positive way and you don’t even realize it.
  • It’s okay if you’re not perfect. One thing is for certain, if you’re out there hustling to make a difference in the world, you will makes mistakes. How you deal with these mistakes is all that really matters. The ups and downs allow us to learn and move forward towards what really matters.
  • Have patience and give it time. We often wonder why things take so long. Did you ever stop to consider that everything might be happening on the perfect timeline for you?
  • Go all in. Are you going to have to work hard to get a business or big idea off the ground? You betcha! So why are people so afraid to really dedicate themselves to their idea or business? The simple truth is that once you make the decision to do whatever it takes, everything seems to fall into place at a clip that you can handle.

As Demetrius says, “give it a try and give it a chance.”

Answer this question: what’s out there that’s calling your name and waiting to be created by YOU? What new project or business have you been waiting to start?
