Many entrepreneurs believe.
They have to.
At all times.
It’s how we are made up: We have a vision, and most times, others don’t believe it. They can’t see the future, and are often are afraid of it. So they say no. They say it can’t be done.
Believing is an awesome view of life. Don’t we want to Believe?
Anything is Possible
Truth will Win
The Right Plan is happening Right Now
Good is Present Everywhere… Find it, See it
These are the things I try to believe. And it can be hard when someone tries to distort it. This is where we entrepreneurs can get “emotionally scammed.”
Yet we often think of a scam regarding a business deal.
Miriam Webster’s dictionary notes a scam as a “fraudulent or deceptive act.” We have to realize this is not just a business operation, but can come in the guise of a person. While I believe in the long-term, positive nature of folks, at times they may be misled. They might do something wrong or harmful for a temporary period. Or perhaps they behave in a way that isn’t right, isn’t ethical. It could affect your partnerships, your culture, your team, and you, in a significant way.
And yet the entrepreneur might give a second chance… Or at least this entrepreneur gives a second, third, fourth, fifth opportunity. I don’t want to give up on people – just as I wouldn’t want someone to give up on me.
