A recent article, 5 Mistaken Beliefs That Hinder Your Entrepreneurial Dreams by Mike Thatcher says that whatever reason you may have to be an entrepreneur, you first need to get your head right and stop believing  that the following notions will always get you where you want to go.

Let’s discuss.

  1. Success is hammering away 24/7.

Everyone who hustles incessantly with no clear direction ends up exhausted sooner or later.  You’ve got to work hard and maximize the time, so you can get important things done while your mind is fresh, full of bright, actionable ideas.

  1. Do what the greats have done and I’ll get there too.

You cannot exactly follow the path of the greats, unless you have the same fortune as theirs. Undoubtedly, you can learn plenty of things along the way, but what are you capable of now, or in the future?

  1. It’s all about who you know.

Who you know is very important in launching your business in a commercial office space. However, it’s just not all about who you know, but you have to produce something that people need, personalize the way you present it, and have a character which convinces other leaders to help you.

  1. I can grow any business once I get some fund.

The idea here is that once you secure a low-interest loan, or find some investors, you can launch a successful startup in an office space for lease. This belief is the blunder of many entrepreneurs who’ve failed in what many of us have called the Golden Age of Entrepreneurship.

While fund is very important to grow your business, no amount is going to save a poorly planned and executed business venture.


While there is truth in these beliefs, a successful startup needs to have a great and feasible idea, a clear, specific and measurable goal.
