Some of my loyal readership is not going to take this information lying down.
Might make a few people pretty miffed.
I can see the feathers ruffling already.
However, I don’t envision any picket signs, flying daggers, or bad press on Twitter, just some ruffling feathers.
But I’m going to trust my readers know me well enough by now to graciously and respectfully grant me my own opinion, even if they don’t share it.
Okay, here goes …
How many times since you bravely crossed over that line to become an entrepreneur have you heard, “Dream BIG!”? “Ya gotta dream BIG!”
I’m the last person on earth who’d set out to squash anyone’s hopes, but …
Dreaming (or daydreaming) about great entrepreneurial success is not productive.
Becoming emotionally vested and all wrapped up in the thoughts of making a gazillion dollars, traveling around the world in your yacht, and having a garage full of luxury vehicles … uh, not productive.
Sorry if that statement comes across as harsh. But spending time with your head in the clouds dreaming about having a successful business is not going to get you any closer to having one.
Taking time to throw some wishful thinking out into the universe is not productive (or lucrative).
If you want to be a successful business owner, you’ve got to leave your emotions out of it and simply do the work of building your business.
Emotions and business are a bad mix.
