Key Insights

Turn your weakness into strength. We all have weaknesses, but that doesn’t mean we should let them hold us down. Quite the contrary, our weaknesses don’t make us weak, they make us human. The key to success is to turn weaknesses into strengths. According to Rob, you should turn your hunger into gain. He explains, “A lot of people think to start a business, you need a load of money. But actually, if you’re in debt and you’re at rock bottom, that’s hunger, and the more hungry you are, the more you’re going to hunt. So actually, me being in debt gave me hunger. If anyone’s struggling, you can turn that hunger into gain.”

Being uncomfortable leads to growth. It’s a tale as old as times; nothing ever grows in your comfort zone. That’s why you should move out of it and get uncomfortable, especially if you want to achieve great success in life. Rob thinks that true entrepreneurs thrive when they are uncomfortable because being uncomfortable leads to growth. He explains, “What most people do is seek out comfort. But true entrepreneurs, they seek out discomfort. They say yes to hard things. They set big goals and challenges. So if anyone is comfortable and complacent, think, where could you challenge yourself?”

Failure is only failure when it’s final. Everyone always fears failure. But once you understand that failure is only failure when it’s final, that’s when your life really starts. You need to learn to see the difference between failure and mistakes. Rob says, “Honestly, as you said that word, I sort of tried to search for things I would deem as a failure, and I can’t pick one thing. I can tell you mistakes. Or I can tell you things I did with the best intentions that I got wrong. I could tell you moments of weakness and vulnerability, but I haven’t failed in the last 17 years.”

Start now and get perfect later. Life is too short, so just do it. It’s as simple as that. Rob even wrote a book about it. According to him, you shouldn’t put off anything, let alone great life experiences and dreams like starting a business or telling someone how you really feel. He says, “Do it now. JFDI. Just fucking do it. JFDS. Just fucking do something. We are all putting off life. We are putting off a hard conversation with someone. Do it now, and then all that pain and emotion around it will disappear. We are putting off a life experience. Go and live it now because you don’t know when your last day is. We are putting off starting a business. Start it now, even if you don’t know everything you need to know.“

Top Quotes

“Life’s very different now. So the worst day of my life, in some ways, was the biggest blessing as well.”

“If you take someone who’s born maybe with more risk averse traits, but age one month, you put them in the school of hard knock entrepreneurship for 20 years, they’re going to be an entrepreneur by the age of 20, no doubt so I think the environment is probably bigger than birth DNA.”

“The biggest thing someone can do if they want to be an entrepreneur or they want to become successful is put yourself in that environment where there’s people already there. You will become it.”

“I think comfort is the enemy of greatness. And comfort is the enemy of progress, but comfort is also a reward mechanism for humans.”

“You only get growth in uncomfortable and scary. You don’t get growth in uncomfortable.”

“Saying yes or no based on your drive and your intuition doesn’t work if you haven’t got 17 years experience and analytical or risk-averse people around you. I happen to have that. At times I feel like they hold me back. At times they feel like I’m the helium balloon that they’ve let go of, and they’re trying to pull back from the sky. And people see that tension as bad. I don’t. I see that tension as really good.”

“What is better in life than meeting really interesting people and having deep and interesting conversations? There’s not much that’s better than that in life ‘cause sometimes we forget that business is still about people.”

“In 99% of the time, doing it now pays.”
