“There you go, more negative waves. Have a little faith baby, have a little faith.”
Fatalism can be damaging. It’s tough enough as it is to keep plugging away at ventures when setbacks are encountered.
The last thing you want to hear are negative comments. Having potential problems pointed out is discouraging. You’ll do anything to change the direction the discussion is taking.
Although this pessimism can dampen enthusiasm, be warned. Being too positive and not acknowledging the pitfalls that lie ahead can be a hazard. A positive outlook strengthens resolve, but realism should prevail.
A balance between thinking like an entrepreneur and an accountant steadies the ship for the rough seas ahead.
And have a little faith baby.
