Motivational Clips for Entrepreneurs: “What Would I Do If I Weren’t Afraid?” (via Sheryl Sandberg)

by Scott Edward Walker on June 12th, 2011

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last.  Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar

Welcome to our weekly series entitled “Motivational Clips for Entrepreneurs.”  Each week, we post a short video clip to inspire and motivate entrepreneurs.  Why?  Because we know how tough it is being an entrepreneur; and whether you’re launching a venture, trying to execute your business model or raising funds, you need a little juice to help you push the ball forward.

This week, as a special tribute to all our female clients and friends, we present Sheryl Sandberg’s recent commencement speech at Barnard in which she provides the following advice (applicable to both men and women):

  • “think big”;
  • “believe in yourself”;
  • “remember, you are awesome”;
  • “do not lean back, lean in”;
  • “try again and then try again”;
  • “fortune favors the bold”;
  • “don’t let your fears overwhelm your desire”; and
  • “ask yourself, what would I do if I weren’t afraid?”

I hope you enjoy it.  Many thanks, Scott
