Not everyone should go for their dreams. According to Robert Kiyosaki in The Business of the 21st Century, today, there are millions of people who dream of quitting their jobs and becoming entrepreneurs, running their own businesses. The problem is, for most people, their dream is just a dream. So the question is, why do so many fail to make their dream of becoming a entrepreneur a reality?
Kiyosaki goes on to say that most of these folks need to change the way they think first, or accept their lot in life. He’s right. These dreamers suffer from stinkin’ thinkin’. Perhaps they think they want to enter the world of entrepreneurship and join a house cleaning franchise like You’ve Got MAIDS, but they can’t imagine giving up the security that their current job gives them. If you decide to open a house cleaning franchise there will be risk, admittedly less than most other franchises due to the lower start up cost, but risk is part of the equation. There is risk staying in a dead end job as well, but most people don’t see that.
Unless you are completely happy with your current career, what is stopping you from going for your entrepreneurial dreams? Have you calculated the risk of abandoning your dreams?
