Here’s to You, Donald Trump!!! | Personal Injury Lawyer Cade Parian

Posted on - Friday, March 21, 2014 under General

I was surfing the Twitter-sphere a couple of days ago when I came across a quote from Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos.  It simply said, “If you never want to be criticized, for goodness’ sake don’t do anything new.”  Inspirational?  Maybe.  Poetic?  Not a bit.  Knock you out of your chair blunt?  ABSOLUTELY.  The quote from Mr. Bezos was posted on Twitter by none other than Donald Trump.  (Yes, I follow Mr. Trump on Twitter & have read every book he has written).

In many professions — the legal profession included — maintaining the status quo is recommended.  In my opinion, part of the reason for such is a lot of law firms and other businesses operate almost like fraternities and sororities in college.  There is the “earn your keep/pay your dues” mentality that almost entirely chokes the thoughts of many in the organization.  Why choke such voices?  I have learned more from non-high school graduates than I have from some of the most academically-acclaimed people in America.  (KEY POINT = LISTEN!!)

About eight months ago, I did something new.  I started a solo personal injury law firm (“small business” for short).  There was criticism.  “Where will you get your clients?  From hanging out in the emergency room?”  “Have you even looked at how bad the economy is?”  “I hope you know how to starve.”  Now, I am not on the same level with Bezos or Trump, but they both heard the same kinds of criticism.  On Bezos, “Wait, you are going to start a book store that you cannot visit?”  For Trump, “You are going to turn that old ugly brick building into an even more ugly building made out of glass?”

The rest is history for Bezos and Trump.  My goal is to encourage anyone reading this to go ahead and take that leap into something new.  I can tell you……..yes, it is scary!!  Yes, there will be critics.  However, in the end, you will be thankful and excited that you made the move.
