The Importance of Thinking for Yourself


By David Mansilla

If you are an entrepreneur, it’s vital that you have a clear vision of what is true and what is not. There have been countless business ventures that are launched and crash to the ground about a second later. It’s important to reflect on these failures and be able to pick apart exactly what went wrong. Our ability to learn from our mistakes is a valuable capability that we must use in order to improve. This is actually easier said than done because determining a fault when there are so many factors is difficult to do.

There are popular beliefs that, since everyone thinks are true, are merely accepted without a moment’s contemplation by those who don’t care to look deeper. That is a huge flaw that we need to overcome. As individuals, we hold more power than you could possibly think. It is in our individuality that the whole of us as a human race is created. This is why it’s so important for each of us as individuals to really think through what we consider to be truths. This all ties back to your business. After so many failed business endeavors, the reason behind they’re shortcomings has been assumed to what is the more obvious reason for failure.

I challenge you to revisit some of the most remembered crashes of the economic world. For example, take another look at the Dot-com bubble of the late 90’s/2000, or the great recession of 2007 to 2009. There is always a great fall after reaching such soaring heights, but why those heights weren’t sustainable is what needs to be looked into. Deep, critical thinking and a constant debate is the healthiest way to overcome our challenges and move forward. This kind of thinking will bring the possibility of a fresh new future for not just your own business, but for us all.
