When you start your success journey you realize that people around you are not supportive. They only way to make people stop laughing at your journey to success is achieving your goal.
There are many people who become entrepreneurs because they start to believe that anything is possible. They feel that they can do anything and they can become someone of value who will be able to help others. These are beautiful thoughts and yes, if you become an entrepreneur because you believe in yourself and because you want to help others, congrats! I know you can make it!
The problem starts with people around you. Your family, friends, and even your lovers start to look at you weirdly when you tell them that you are an entrepreneur and you will succeed.
Just curious how many successful entrepreneurs you have in your family? I didn’t have any and I can bet that many people don’t have successful friends or somebody who is very successful in their family. Most of the people are taught to be a good employee. Their main focus is to go to work, do what they need to do, finish the work when it get’s 5PM, come back home and rest. This is how most of the people live their lives.
Of course, nothing is wrong with it IF those people are happy. But let’s be honest, most of the people are not happy with their job, finances and love life. But even they are not happy, they are used to this kind of life. They are used to the security of a stable job, so when you come up with this crazy idea about becoming successful they start to laugh at you.
Success Journey is a long run. You can’t expect to become successful and rich in the next few day. Usually, it will take years or at least months before you can say, I succeed and now I am rich!
If you are already working on building your dream you know that failing at something is a common thing at the success journey. By making mistakes and failing we learn new things which will lead us to the success. We as entrepreneurs understand it and we are ready to fail as many times as it’s necessary to achieve our goals. But do you think that people around you will understand this process? Not possible!
The hardest part of the whole success journey is to make a decision if you want to keep being like your all, negative friends or if you want to create a life of time and financial freedom. Of course you want to become a successful entrepreneur but actually to make this final decision is very hard because you are so used to the average life and you can’t imagine living without your “best friends“.
It’s not really about being or being not an entrepreneur. It’s more about a decision between old habits, old knowledge, old circumstances and new knowledge and new friends who will support you all the way on your success journey.
You need to decide, which life you want. The old one that didn’t make you satisfied or the new one that can give you a fulfillment.
I am writing this post to help you go through some obstacles on your success journey, so I will be honest. You can’t make people stop laughing completely. Either you get used to it and you focus on your goals or you cut the relationship with them.
Some people say that when you show them result they will stop laughing. Some people maybe will get quieter, but they will start talking different things about you and your success. When you succeed, they will start to talk to their friends that you are doing something illegal. They will be making jokes that you will end up in a jail. This is something you can not really change because it’s not about you, it’s about them.
I want you to realize 2 things that might really help you handling that kind of people.
Try to stop focusing on those who don’t support you. If you are willing to succeed, you don’t need that kind of people in your life. Focus on your vision and when someone laughs at you imagine yourself laughing with a significant other on the beach not caring about a time or money.
