“All you need is 20 seconds of insane courage and I promise you something great will come of it.”

I finally watched “We Bought a Zoo” last night. Amazing movie. One of my favorite lines was when Matt Damon’s character explained to his son that all he needed was 20 seconds of insane courage.

My second favorite line is “Why not?” in answer to questions. I loved that because too often when someone asks us a question of why (why you? why now? why try? why dare?), we want to justify our answers with “because…” instead of responding with “why not?”

But let’s get back to the courage. Insane courage.

I think we all have our own stories of those brief moments of insane courage we found deep inside to move ahead. Entreprenuerial life is perhaps a series of moments of insane courage strung together one after another.

Tell me about yours. I’d love to hear about one of those defining moments for you.

Leave your comment and together the comments will become “The Insanely Courageous Guide to Succeeding as an Entreprenuer.”

You get to write this guide.
