Here, Teddy Roosevelt, one of the greatest “can do” personalities of history, provides much needed instruction to entrepreneurs. A recurring theme I have seen in my businesses and in those of successful friends of mine, is that often times the best opportunities arrive in the form of projects and subject matter that you don’t yet have a ton of experience with. You must learn to be a quick study, so that you can take on projects that may be a bit of a stretch for you and your business. Simultaneously, you must learn to embody and display a high level of confidence that, regardless of what the challenge is, you will surmount it and reach your objectives.
