Don't Listen To The Naysayers! Find Success YOUR Way...

Jul 11, 2008
You'll find that when you have a great product or service and you start to succeed people will usually come out of the woodwork that will try to take you down a peg, whether intentionally or not. When I used to mention owning my own business early on or not wanting to work for anyone but myself, people would always act the same way. They'd stare at me for several seconds with an odd look on their face and would either say, "What?! You have to have a job!" or "That would never work." These comments don't even make sense when you think of all the corporations and small businesses throughout the world. They make up everything we purchase on a daily basis and they all started with a single idea and grew from there. People will many times think that because they've worked their entire lives in a 9-5 job that that's the only way to make a living and will gladly let you know that you're wrong for thinking you could start and run a successful business. No matter how much they tell you this nonsense, you have to ignore them and understand that they haven't opened their minds to the possibility of being on their own and supporting themselves.

Society as a whole encourages us to work hard for someone else and most teaching methods throughout school do the same. Of course there are lessons on how to run certain aspects of a business like accounting and finance, but if you really want to learn more about specifically doing something exclusively for yourself, you're limited unless you attend a private school designed with the entrepreneur in mind. These schools can be very expensive and, therefore, may not be a valid choice for a lot of people out there. This is another reason why so many people have built the belief system in their heads that the only way to succeed is to work year after year doing the same thing and not really moving up much or being stimulated enough to keep their interest.

The point is this: most people will never understand what it's like to be completely free in life and to not have to worry about money or to freely do with their time whatever they choose. You can't really blame them in a way because this is a social norm of the world. This is how society has lead us all to believe life should run and it's nothing new. It has been going on since the beginning of time and will continue to far into the future. With the advent of the Internet, many more people have become empowered and have started pulling away from "normality," but the bulk of the world will continue thinking the same way it always has. You have to do what is right for you and if you dream to be something more, to pull away from the rest of pack and do something on your own terms, then you will attain a level of happiness you never thought possible. Ignore the negativity of naysayers and thrive!
