Successful entrepreneurs are set in their own ways. They do not heed to warnings from others. In fact, they refuse to listen to what other people, including family members, close friends, and other entrepreneurs, have to say. Most have already made up their mind that they will do whatever they want whenever they want. What most of these entrepreneurs do not know is their bad decisions could ruin all their hard work, especially if things get out of hand. Below, you will discover the real risk of entrepreneurial strengths becoming addictive weaknesses.
The Problem Of Indecision
One of the major problems with being successful is that you tend to second guess a lot of decision or become indecisive. For instance, say you want to treat yourself with your newfound success and move into a better apartment. Maybe, you have your eye on a downtown loft that is just perfect. You walk through it, it is in a good neighborhood, and you absolutely love the place, but when you get to the bedroom, you find that the closet is a little small. Maybe this one little feature turns you off and you aren’t willing to compromise and before you know it the loft is off the market. This type of indecisiveness could be applied to a lot of real-life situations.
You Become Excessive
When you are living frugally it is easy to moderate. You probably eat in moderation, drink in moderation, and even update your social media account in moderation. Well, when you grow to the heights of your career it can be easy to lose hold of this moderation. With your newfound success, you will probably be open to a whole new level of cuisine, drink, and entertainment that wasn’t available to you before. This will probably be the best of the best and it will be easy to overindulge. Things can get truly scary when you reach the excessive stage because too much of a good or bad thing can lead to major addiction and reliance. What if you developed a habit for betting large sums of money with idn poker and other online casinos, but your gaming sense wasn’t quite as good as your business sense? When you took it to excessive, you would probably end up in debt.
You Harden Too Much
There is nothing wrong with being honest. In fact, if everyone were honest all the time, you would probably be living in a better world. However, there is a time when too much honesty can be a bad thing. Working your way to the top and honing your skills will harden you and maybe even make you somewhat oblivious to the feelings and emotions of others. So, what you just passed up a co-worker with a family of 6 for a big-time promotion. Who cares, you are on top of your game. Growing hard is never a bad thing in a competitive business world, but there has to be a time when you turn it off. Growing to insensitive to people and situations around you can have a huge negative aftereffect on your lifestyle.
