Ignore Your Enemies
and Haters, Follow Your Dreams
You have probably encountered a situation once more than when you come in front of your acquaintances, relatives and enthusiastically tell them - I HAVE A GREAT IDEA AND I'M FULLY GOING INTO IT.
Instead of patting on the shoulder and wishing good luck, they roll their eyes at you and blur them out with the words:
Are you crazy?
Are you aware of the risk? It's not just that!
Or "there have been such ideas, you'd better find a normal job."
They don't have to think badly right away, they're just trying to protect you from "falling to the mouth." But no matter what they tell you, remember that it is your life and you determine the conditions in which you want to live it. Realize that most of us have been brought up traditionally, which means that we have been taught to study well and find a good job. And suddenly you come and try to destroy this stereotype.
You may not really succeed right away, but it doesn't matter. There are no failures, realize if something goes wrong doesn't mean a disaster right away, you just came up with one of the ways you can't do it. Try again and the only thing you can get is the result - either you achieve the goal or you learn and gain experience. If opponents tell you that this is not possible, they are based on their own convictions, which they have acquired during their lifetime. If they tell you it's not possible or it's a bad idea, it doesn't mean you can't do it. Maybe they just weren't persistent enough to find the right solution.
Inventor Thomas Edison was told at school that he was stupid and could never do anything. Well-known billionaire Oprah Winfrey was also told that she should never start show business. And today it has the most popular TV show in the world! "If someone tells you not to, don't forget that it shows you his limit, not yours."
Of course, the difference is whether you are warned about your business plan or strategy by a negative hit or a successful neighbor who has 30 years of business experience. In such a case, it can be a wise recommendation to be careful in a certain area and look at things from a different angle. Anyway, try to surround yourself with those who make you feel that you can succeed. Look for positive-minded people who have already accomplished something in the area where you want to succeed and can point you in the right direction.
