Being Realistic - by Ravi Patel

 

Entrepreneurs have a very positive outlook regarding new opportunities and ideas. They tend to look at things as a glass half-full as opposed to half-empty. This type of optimistic thinking leads to innovative businesses.

 

Is this always a good thing? It depends.

 

If the Entrepreneur has some basis in reality and/or surrounds him or her self with good advisors, there is a good probability that he or she will not venture deep into seeming opportunities that do not make sense or are far-fetched.

 

On the other hand, if the Entrepreneur is stubborn and relentless in the pursuit of an idea, despite repeated contrary advice, then chances of failure increase.

 

It is a wonderful quality for Entrepreneurs to have optimism, curiosity and a positive view of new ideas and opportunities, but a reality check is necessary for long-term success.
