How to ruin your business or startup with just one word?

For sure, many of the readers of Lifehacker have their own business, or someone is just thinking about it. Whatever it is, it is very important not to ruin it at the start. And you can ruin it with just one word. Below we present a close-to-text translation of an article by a blogger who shares his experience and makes interesting conclusions.

I recently started developing a small startup with a co-founder. After that, I started talking to people and reading books about how to make my project bigger and better. I realized 2 things that I think apply to any successful startup.

1. There are no hard and fast rules about what you need to do to become successful. As a rule, success is a mix of hard work and opportunities sprinkled on top with a pinch of luck.

2. Failure always begins with the words "I'll try to do..."

It seems to me that most successful companies, both large and small, started a business and never thought about failure and did not "try" to do something, they just took it and did it.

I don't want to say that they didn't have hard times or that everything was easy, or that there was no fear of failure from time to time, or even failure. But at some point in the history of every successful company, the word "try" simply disappears.

I have used this word, "try", for many years and this was my position: I am a modest person and I believe that it is not right to be overconfident and only a crazy person can be sure of the result. But the fact is that this word itself already implies failure.

The word "try" suggests that one of the options for action may be failure. It assumes that excuses can appear at any moment. This means that after the circumstances change, I am not responsible for the result. However, the rejection of the word "attempt" does not mean confidence in success, it means confidence in action.

In addition to this word and its meaning, there is a lot of research on how words affect the psychosomatic state of the body and how it affects getting a certain result. If you are interested in delving deeper into the study of this issue, then I advise you to read the books "Awaken the Giant Within" and "Unlimited Power" Anthony Robins. Both books are amazing. The fact is that successful feelings and words lead to successful actions (not necessarily to successful results). Isn't that what we're all looking for so hard?

Looking to the future, I imagine how the program we are about to release will have a tremendous success, and in the coming years - even more.
Nevertheless, if something does not work out the way I want, I will repeat the words of Thomas Edison: "I did not suffer defeats. I just found 10,000 ways that don't work."

I'll leave you with that.

Here, by the way, Eminem's words from the track "Lose Yourself" come to mind: «Success is my only ************* option, failure's not.» (Success is my only option, failure is not.)
I agree with that.

And how often do you use the word "try" in relation to your business?
