Positive Influence

Venturing into a new business idea could be a lonely proposition for Entrepreneurs. Most people don’t understand their Vision and stand and watch from the sidelines, if not being critical.

There will still be a lot naysayers even as the company grows. It is critical for Entrepreneurs to surround themselves with positive people. Positive people add good vibes and positive energy to any venture. They are generally team-players and also have the motivation to overcome challenges and look at problems as opportunities.

Negative people always find fault in whatever is being asked of them or is being done around them. They always look at ways in which things or ideas will not work instead of finding solutions. They generally sap energy from an organization. These category of constantly negative people are often intelligent, but can be lazy thus finding excuses not to do things.

Entrepreneurs should be careful to distinguish between positive people and  those who are a;ways saying “yes” to them. One can be positive but still question something if it is not right. Entrepreneurs would be best served by people who are positive but are not afraid to say “no.”

Adjust to Changing Conditions

A simple saying –  “Complain not about the wind. Adjust your sails.” – offers great business advice for Entrepreneurs.

In this troubled economic times and uncertainty, it is very easy to complain about all the things that are preventing Entrepreneurs from succeeding. Some of the issues faced by Entrepreneurs including cash shortages, employee layoffs and poor morale, unsustainable overhead and fixed expenses, misaligned ratios of variable expenses to revenues, customer and product/service issues, high debt levels and so on are ripe topics for complaining.

Losers will take this opportunity to complain and find excuses to rationalize their failure, just as a poor sailor frets about the winds.

Winning Entrepreneurs and leaders, instead, adjust their sails to move forward on a steady course. Finding ways to increase cash flow; having employee work-sharing programs and non-monetary motivational programs to boost morale; reducing overhead and fixed expenses; realigning ratios of variable expenses to revenues, customer partnerships and product/service improvement initiatives; and restructuring high debt loads are all positive ways to adjust the sails.

What would you rather do? Complain about the winds or adjust your sails. Do the Right Things!

Being Realistic

Entrepreneurs have a very positive outlook regarding new opportunities and ideas. They tend to look at things as a glass half-full as opposed to half-empty. This type of optimistic thinking leads to innovative businesses.

Is this always a good thing? It depends.

If the Entrepreneur has some basis in reality and/or surrounds him or her self with good advisors, there is a good probability that he or she will not venture deep into seeming opportunities that do not make sense or are far-fetched.

On the other hand, if the Entrepreneur is stubborn and relentless in the pursuit of an idea, despite repeated contrary advice, then chances of failure increase.

It is a wonderful quality for Entrepreneurs to have optimism, curiosity and a positive view of new ideas and opportunities, but a reality check is necessary for long-term success.
