Entrepreneurs hear voices. Some inspire and empower us. Some are nasty, uninspiring, and ultimately take us off our journey of moving towards purpose and success. Being an entrepreneur is an uphill battle and an amazing, inspiring adventure all at the same time! As we take that journey, make sure you never listen to these nasty little voices that creep into your mind, life, business and heart.
Have you ever heard these?
You are going to fail! You are a failure! Quit now before you fail big time! You are not good enough! People are not going to buy what you are selling! Maybe you should go back to working for somebody! This thing is not making money, why do you keep doing it! This is not really your purpose! Quit while you are ahead! Look at your bank account, your net worth is your self worth! You are worth nothing! You don’t bring value!
I have heard these voices in my life and journey as a man, leader and entrepreneur. At times, they scream loudly, at times they are a faint whisper.
Do you listen to these voices? What happens when you do? How do you capture them and eliminate them form your life?

Entrepreneurs face adversity every day. Have you ever been in a conversation with another entrepreneur and it’s clear that both of you are going through a struggle or adversity? Have you ever left this conversation knowing that something should have been talked about that was not? After doing so, did you wonder if you could have helped your peer more, or they could have done the same for you?
As we face adversity, not just as entrepreneurs, but as people, having others to help us navigate the storm is very important. Unfortunately, too many times we cover it up, tough it out, hide the truth, and just don’t plain come clean with whatever it is we are going through.
Want to help another person struggling with adversity? Share first, go first, be first, get vulnerable, first. When one person decides to be brave, drop the walls, share with ultimate vulnerability, it lifts the vail of small talk, and creates an environment to have real conversations about life, love and leadership; conversations that really matter.
Are you willing to go first?
