I was working on the oil rigs when I had a mentor ask me:
“What would you do if it all went wrong?
What would you do if you took that leap of faith, quit your job, started a new venture and everything went belly up?
What is the worst that can happen?”
I replied with:
“Well I would simply go back to my job on the oil rigs.”
“But you already work on the oil rigs”
“then you are already working your worst case scenario!”
Take a minute to let that sink in. I loved working on the oil rigs, but hey if the worst that can happen is I come back to this sort of life, then I have nothing to lose do I?
So I took the leap, and have never looked bank since
What is your worst case scenario if things don’t go right?
