I don’t know if you watch movies like X-Men. But did you ever notice one simple thing. The way the mutants are treated in the movie, is kind of the way entrepreneurs are treated in real world. We’re tarted like outcasts. Did you ever stop to think why that is? The reason for that is that employees don’t understand the self-employed mindset. employees don’t like having to deal with the hard stuff. The hardships we have to deal with on a daily basis.
They don’t mind never progressing or just growing very slowly. Employees represent a large portion of the world I’m talking about 80% at least. so are you still surprised everybody you know trying to get you off starting your own business. They want you to think the way they do.
You can’t reason these people because you’re essentially speaking a different language. All you can do is keep on pushing forward. Let them do their thing and you do yours.
