 Bezos: dont regret for failure. Never try to make people feel sorry.


When you reflect on what you regret at the age of 80, they are almost always something you havent done, Bezos said in an interview with MathiasD? Pfner, the chief executive of AxelSpringer, a German newspaper giant. They belong to the omission. You may seldom regret your failure, but what you have never tried will make you feel sorry. Forbes magazine estimates that the 54 year old entrepreneur is worth up to 130 billion 500 million dollars. He said that what we should do is not only decided by profession, but also needs to consider the factors of life. Bezos said, Im not just talking about business. There are many other things that are meaningful, such as I love that person, but I never told them. You know, 50 years from now, you will say, why dont I tell her? Why dont I chase her? So, when you look back at your life story in secret, you will be very sorry. Bezos himself was not willing to leave this regret. Just as his career flourished, he chose to leave Wall Streets investment banking career, began selling books on the Internet and created a small website called Amazon. It seems to be a wise decision after the event. However, Bezos and his wife Mackenzie (MacKenzie) must have been under great pressure. After all, not everyone agreed with them. In 2010, in a commencement speech at the Princeton University, Bezos recalled: I worked in a financial company in New York, all around me, I had a very good boss, and I admire him very much. But I finally decided to go to the boss and tell him that I wanted to start a company selling books online. He took me a long way in Central Park, listened carefully to me, and finally said, it sounds like a good idea, but for those who havent found a good job, thats a better idea. Bezos did think about the decision. In his speech, he said, this logic is meaningful to me. He persuaded me to think about it for 48 hours before making the final decision. From this perspective, this is indeed a difficult choice. But in the end, I decided I had to give it a try. Bezos explained: I do not think that I will regret this attempt or failure, but I will be troubled by the decision not to try. Therefore, I have chosen a less secure way to pursue my enthusiasm, and I am proud of my choice. In addition to this mindset, Bezos said that in his life, support and love can inspire him to take risks. Bezos recalled to Mackenzie: you know, Mackenzie married a man who works steadily in the Wall Street. But after we got married a year later, I went to her to say that I wanted to quit my job and move all over the country to open this online bookstore. Like everyone else, Mackenzies first question is: what is the Internet? Because no one knows, after all, it was in 1994. Bezos added, but before we get the answer, Mackenzie said, great! Lets go! Because she has always supported my decision, and she knows that I have always been passionate about inventing and starting companies. In addition to his wife, Bezos believed that his parents and grandfathers had great influence on his life and gave him strength and courage.
