It can be hard for the haters and the entrepreneurs/dreamers/doers to understand each other, so I thought it might be a good idea to help translate-
Grandiose Ideas = Visionary
He/she is schizophrenic. = Multitasker capable of compartmentalizing.
Nobody but him/her thinks this hair brained scheme is going to work, but he/she just keeps working on it. = Committed
He/she talks to himself in the mirror. = Getting mentally prepared to do well when it counts.
He/she is anti-social now. He/she never wants to go out anymore. = Staying home to save money, to be able to have money to invest in your business/idea.
He/she has these “epiphanies” where he/she goes on and on about these unrealistic fantasies. = Sharing your passion with people you care about, but who will likely not get it, unless they themselves are of a similar mindset.
He/she said- “I will find a way to make this work, because I am determined.” = You have the right mindset to problem solve and find solutions, so that you can build and grow a successful business.
He/she already works from 9 to 5. Then he/she comes home and works for another 2 hours on this crazy business idea. = Working from 9 to 5 is where you make a living. Working on your business or idea before 9am or after 5pm, is where you make your fortune/bring your business or idea to life!
He/she wastes all this time reading these books about how to become more successful. = Just like you what you put into your body effects your health, what you put into your mind, effects your mind/mindset.
He/she is so arrogant. He/she said- “I will find a way to make this work, because I am determined.” = You have the right mindset to problem solve and find solutions, so that you can build and grow a successful business.
It feels demeaning to me when he/she goes on these rants about what all he/she is going to do. = Sharing your vision with the people you care enough about to share your vision with.
He/she always returns to his/her old ways. = Determined to succeed and doesn’t give up easily.
Nobody has ever tried that before, and there is probably a reason. = Thinking outside the box.
Why does he/she want to start a business, when he/she could just work at the mill like everyone else? = Not willing to settle for less, when the world is filled with endless possibilities.
He/she is crazy! = He/she is more creative/optimistic/forward-looking than the haters, so the haters falsely judge him/her.
