We have closed seven seasons of the hit show Game of Thrones, and if you’re an entrepreneur there are some key lessons to learn from how the characters play their parts. Now that we are in the tail end of the story and waiting upwards of two years to finally get some closure, let’s look back at the last six years for teachable moments that can help you claim your own Iron Throne.
Lesson #1: Be ready to put in the work.
While it would seem like a no-brainer to just show up with your 3 fire breathing dragons, Daenerys Targaryen had to be flexible with how she navigates her journey to the top.
Teachable moment: Don’t assume success is guaranteed because you have a game-changing competitive edge. You will still need to pay your dues and put in the hours. We needed six full seasons to see the Khalessi’s dragons be the dragons we need them to be and you will need time to reach your full potential as well.
