Greetings! How many times did you come up with what you thought was a brilliant idea? It could have been a new invention that was going to make you rich, perhaps a business idea that was out of this world awesome, or perhaps a simple way to make your life or job easier. You ponder the idea a little more, just to make sure it is a great idea before you share it with anyone. Then you finally get the courage to share with your spouse, friends, boss, etc…
After sharing your brilliant and well thought out idea, what is the first thing that happens? They pull out the shotgun and blow your idea to smithereens! They might do you the courtesy of doing the Oreo cookie approach, by giving you a compliment before and after blowing up your idea, but the end result is the same. You sitting there feeling like you just got the wind knocked out of you by a 350 pound linebacker. That is what I like to call a Dream Squasher!
Dream Squashers are those people that no matter how good your idea is they will think it is horrible and do anything they can do to convince you that it is a really bad idea. When it comes to Network Marketing those people are lurking around every corner. I can’t tell you how many times someone looks at our company and business plan and are supper pumped, but they need to talk with spouse, Boy/Girl friend, parents, etc… Then when they share this new business idea on how to make some extra money each month they get shot down. It’s like they curl up in a little ball and wish they could die instead of posturing up and standing firm on their idea. They were so excited about this opportunity, and knew this could be the absolute best change in their life, and yet they let one of the Dream Squashers ultimately destroy their dreams and any hopes of getting freedom.
If you have an idea and you know it is the best thing since sliced bread, do yourself a favor and no matter who you share it with, Never Ever let anyone talk you out of it. We only get one life, so choose not to spend it in regret by always letting Dream Squashers talk you out of doing or being something great. Listen and follow your ideas because they could lead you right into your dreams. Remember to always DREAM BIG!!!
