If you want to THINK big, you’ve got to FAIL big.
This can be considered common knowledge for seasoned business owners. But for those who are just starting out, how do you deal with the lurking hoards of Debbie Downers and Negative Nancys?
In order to get past that negativity, understand where they’re coming from.
So many people are waiting, ready to criticize others for their failures — when in the end they would rarely, if not ever be the ones to step up to the plate to take the risk themselves.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.” — Marianne Williamson.
Naysayers love it when others fail because they aren’t satisfied with their own lives. Typical discouragement comes from those who aren’t where they want to be in life. So seeing others fail is the greatest entertainment in the world for them; it’s positive reinforcement, because they’ve spent so much time convincing themselves that their standards are OK, even when they know they want more. All in all, as opposed to being the greatest potential they can be, they’re afraid to take the chance to improve themselves, because they don’t think they will be good enough if they do.
If others aren’t happy with their own lives, you will only get negative feedback.
Like crabs in a bucket, they need to pull others down to their level in order to survive. Just stay out of the bucket!
