To all budding entrepreneurs! Beware of the dream stealers!

Dream stealer mouse

 

 

We have all met dream stealers at some time in our lives! Whether they are friends, colleagues or family (not you of course!) they all have similar traits they like to steal (or crush) other people’s dreams. They may not want to do anything with it they cannot see why you should have any! Recall the child (which could have been you!) who wanted to take everyone’s toys for themselves just because they could? The common mistake is that these people are jealous, they are not! Some people struggle with seeing people rise up, end of!

 

Dream stealers

 

(Yes it’s very childish, I know, but there we are!)

When you are trying to get your business off the ground be aware there will be those dream stealers (crushers) who come out with questions/statements such as:

1. “Really? Do you have experience in this area?” in other words “I don’t see you doing this successfully”
2. “Is this a good time?” in other words “I don’t see you doing this successfully”
3. “I know several people who tried that” in other words “I don’t see you doing this successfully”
4. “Do you think people will buy?” in other words “I don’t see you doing this successfully”
5. “What will you do if it doesn’t take off?” in other words “I don’t see you doing this successfully”
6. “Good luck with that!” in other words “I don’t see you doing this successfully”
7. “Is there any money to be made it that?” in other words “I don’t see you doing this successfully”

Are you getting my drift? The questions in themselves are not wrong but the intention and motivation behind the question is! Coming from a dream stealer it’s trying to put doubts in your mind! If they really knew you they would realised that you have put together all your facts and figures and are stepping out into your well-planned dream.

How do you manage them? When you feel their negative tentacles reaching out to you run like the wind (either naturally or metaphorically!) You will get a peaceful night’s sleep too!
