Fear Supersedes Passion


In recent times I’m approached by lots of youngsters who have zeal for entrepreneurship… They have wonderful ideas and some even have good execution plan… But what is common with all the folks is the dreaded word “Fear of Failure”… They approach me asking me to help them in execution… In simple terms it is their idea where is I’ve to;

  • Invest in project…
  • Create, Build & manage a team…
  • Manage and align all the stakeholders…
  • Market it to end user…

What all I can get in return is their support from outside… Meaning they wont quit their job & they will keep giving their thoughts… They quit and join me when everything is set and company comes to a comfortable position…

In simple words they want some third person to take the risk and they will share the benefits once the project is a success… If it fails they don’t have anything to loose other than some time they spend on meetings & fringe jobs they do…

The reasons they have for not quitting their job immediately is;

  • They have commitments (at the age of 24 & they assume they will be out of commitment at 34)…
  • They have to gain some expertise & experience…
  • They don’t have sufficient capital…

For all those gentleman I’ve a simple answer… I’m not stupid… If your Fear Supersedes your Passion it your problem… I’ve no obligation to baby sit you for your success…

All I can tell is you are not an entrepreneur material because you don’t have traits such as;

  • Guts
  • Enjoying Failures
  • Fire in your A$$

Finally I’m sure you can’t become an entrepreneur until you change your attitude…
