How Entrepreneurs Can Avoid Being Emotionally Scammed

Many entrepreneurs believe.

They have to.

At all times.

That’s how they are made up: they have a vision, and most times, others don’t believe it.  They can’t see it.

Believing is an awesome view of life.  Don’t we want to Believe?

Such as…

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 something tries to distort it.  Entrepreneurs are used to going against the grain, but this is where they can get “scammed.”

When they believe in a person who seems to do them wrong. Or behaves in a way that isn’t right.  And yet the entrepreneur might give a second chance… and for some of us, a second, third, fourth, fifth.  We don’t want to give up. For me as an entrepreneur, I never want to give up on people.   Yet this is where it can hurt your organization, dent your vision (briefly for a time), hurt your heart, or simply slow your progress.

So in essence, don’t get scammed — by yourself. No one can do it to you; you continue to give that someone a chance. You can always believe that the person is trying their best, or that there is another right place for them, or in worst case — wish them well and believe you did your best.
