People don’t understand Your Entrepreneurial Journey? Do you struggle to explain your Entrepreneurial Journey? Your Entrepreneurial Journey will bring a lot of people that aren’t happy about the steps you take and they might try to pull you down. If you have this kind of people around you, read this blog post to know how to make people understand your Entrepreneurial Journey.
There are a couple of reasons why people don’t understand your Entrepreneurial Journey. The main reason is that most of the people are not entrepreneurs and most of the people never even tried to be one. Many people feel comfortable with their “Stable” income, all they need to do is go to work, do the job and next day do the same thing.
They get “secured” that at the end of the week or month they will get paid for the work they did. So what do you think, how this kind of person can understand someone who is willing to work hard and not even getting paid for a while?
If you are reading this then you are probably an entrepreneur and there is no reason to hide the fact that at the beginning of Entrepreneurial Journey there are more struggles, obstacles, fears and disappointments than actual money. If you are not an entrepreneur yet, sorry but this is the truth. However Entrepreneurs see the bigger picture, they have long term vision which is totally different than other people’s vision or goals.
Most people have a goal of paying the light fee on time, being able to go on vacation in the next 5 years. It’s sad but most of the people who earn just enough to live lost their dreams and not they just want to live a quiet life without problems and that’s ok if this is what you really want.
Entrepreneur’s vision and goals are different. A lot of entrepreneurs focus on self-improvement, contribution, success, travel, possibilities etc. Entrepreneurs are willing to fail forward because each time they fail forward they are getting closer to their dreams. Entrepreneurs are willing to work hard for weeks, months or even ears even they don’t earn as much as they want. There are many business owners that earn just to pay for food, light and water fee but they work twice more than the average employee. Why? Because they see a bigger picture, they know that after fee weeks, months or years there will be the major breakthrough that will change their lives forever.
To be honest, at the beginning of your Entrepreneurial Journey, it’s impossible to make people understand. People will say “sure I understand that you are TRYING to reach your dreams, but maybe you should get a job and continue TRYING to reach your dreams little by little“. Very attractive suggestion for somebody that is currently struggling but it will put you back in your comfort zone and instead of failing forward you are starting to move backward.
Remember that people who never tried to run a business or be entrepreneurs will never understand your journey UNTIL you SHOW them major results.
People that have a job that gives they imagined “secured life” will not understand why you are writing a blog, take videos, read personal development book, why you don’t want to quit even you don’t have money left and bill collectors are coming after you.
Connect with other business owners, entrepreneurs and people that want something more from life. People that are starting their own journeys know the struggle, know the obstacles and they are more open minded. You don’t need to feel alone when you try to reach your goals because you are not alone, there are millions of entrepreneurs that are open to connecting with you.
First, at all you don’t need to explain anything to anybody but if you still want people to understand your journey the only thing you can do is to create some results. When people see that you are starting achieving some of your goals finally they will be like “ok. now I get it”. Some of them will think that if you could do it then maybe it’s worth to start their own journey. Some of them will obviously not care at all which is totally fine and probably at that moment you would not even care what somebody else is thinking because you know it works and you can see the results.
Couple of things to remember:
1. You don’t need to explain anything to anybody, it’s your Entrepreneurial Journey and what you believe is what matter.
2. If you start to feel that you are alone, start building relationships with other entrepreneurs.
3. If you want people to understand your Entrepreneurial Journey you need to show them results.
4. Focus on growth and fall forward instead of worrying about someone’s opinion.
I hope this post helped you understand why people simply don’t get you. If you ever start to feel frustrated because of people around you come back to my blog and read this post again.
