The Corridor Principle

The Corridor Principle

The corridor principle experiment was conducted in a study done by Robert Ronstadt back in the 1980s. He explained the principle as the mere act of starting a venture in which enables entrepreneurs to see other opportunities they could neither see nor take advantage of until they had started their initial venture.

The difference between those who succeeded in the entrepreneurial field was because they took the chance to launch themselves even without the guarantee of success.

The daffodil principle is taught as a great principle of celebration where we are taught to move towards our goals one step at a time even if we're taking baby steps to reach them. It teaches the importance of being patient and how it correlates to why extraordinary successes happen:

  1. Ordinary actions are done consistently
  2. Regular feedback is provided where you're self-aware of what works and what doesn't and with this, you improve the former to maximize possible outcomes.

The Fresh Start Effect

When we want to change ourselves anew, we often set a date on when to start changing our behaviors or our habits. This is the concept of having a "fresh start".

The effect of the "fresh start" is that we're able to overlook our past mistakes and imperfections of our daily lives and have new beginnings. We are then more likely to take action towards our goals.

What Is Fear of Failure?

Nobody enjoys failing. Fear of failure can be so strong that avoiding failure eclipses the motivation to succeed. Insecurity about doing things incorrectly causes many people to unconsciously sabotage their chances for success.

If you are afraid of failure, it will cause you to avoid potentially harmful situations.

Fear of failure keeps you from trying, creates self-doubt , stalls progress, and may lead you to go against your morals.
