Here is the reason why smart people make bad entrepreneurs and better employees: smart people are too smart for themselves.
Let me explain.
If you’re smart , then you’re really good at two things…
#1. You’re great at coming up with out of the box ideas.
One of the great things about smart people, is that they tend to be great idea generators. They think possibilities not probabilities.
If you’re going to be an entrepreneur, you want to continually stretch what you think is possible and live outside the box of what you think is possible.
Creative people are good at thinking outside of the box. If you get ideas that inspire you and regardless of what others think, you put them into action, then you have a recipe for creating success. You will eventually get where you want to go.
But that’s not the only thing that creative people do.
Sure, they come up with great inventive and innovative ideas. They can easily think outside the box.
The problem is the second thing that creative people do.
#2 Creative people tend not to act outside of the box of possibility.
Creative people are so creative and innovative that while they do think outside of the box, they do not act outside of the box of possibility. Why? Because their creativity also works in reverse.
If you’re creative then you have come up against this before. You’re great at coming up with ideas and dreaming about possibilities, but as soon as you think about taking action outside of the box of possibility, your fears kick in. And what’s worse is that your unconscious mind will come up with thousands of reasons why you should not take action on your idea.
It’s creativity working in reverse… and no action = no results.
So the reason why smart, well meaning and creative people tend to make bad entrepreneurs is because they can easily talk themselves out of the very ideas they have come up with when their fears kick in. Instead of focusing on the possibilities, they envision the worst case scenarios. And those scary images keep them stuck
The key to embracing your creative genius and still gaining momentum towards your bigger vision is this: You want to embrace the part of you that stretches and thinks of possibilities and let go of the part of you that is afraid of moving forward. Once you do that, the possibilities and your belief in those possibilities holds strong so you can get into action to make it happen.

In this post I’ll share my insights on why people suppress their negative feelings as a coping mechanism.
What bothers me the most is when people tell me that they just need to be more positive. They need to think positive.
“It really helps,” they say.
What a load of CRAP.
Do you really think you can talk yourself out of sadness, regret and frustration simply by thinking positive thoughts?
That all you need to do is THINK POSITIVELY and the world is your oyster.
Then there is this whole other group of people who pretend to be coaches. They coach people by saying, “Let’s pretend you didn’t feel that way – you were not depressed, angry, or grieving – how would that make you feel if everything was perfectly ok?”
And the person being coached says, “Well, I’d feel really good.”
Here’s what they forgot to tell you. Those good feeling only last a moment or two at best.
And then guess what happens?
The depression, the anger and the feeling of grief comes rushing back!
If you have a pile of crap and you cover it with ice cream, you make that crap look really good.
But guess what?
You still have crap below the surface.
You can’t fake yourself out of depression. You can’t heal negative emotions with positive thinking.
THAT is a huge load of bull-crap.
The way you feel is the way you feel. And when it comes to deep negative emotions – feelings of anger, frustration, regret and depression – you can’t positive think your way out of those feelings. Affirmations won’t work and neither will any other sophisticated technology.
The only way you can heal those emotions is to accept them. THEN… and only then… will you finally be able to let them go.
But what do we do instead?
We push those negative feelings down – we suppress them. It’s heart-wrenching really.

I’ve talked about beliefs quite a bit on this site. I’ve written about how beliefs stop people, create blind spots and even cause pain and discomfort. I’ve also written about how beliefs can help you achieve your wildest dreams and goals if they are strong positive beliefs aligned with your goals. In this article I’ll share 3 steps to install a positive belief system to attract more money.
Step 1: Choose What You Want
If you want to earn more money then you need to know how much. You may want a 10% raise at your job or you may want to earn an extra $100,000 before the end of the year. You may even want to double your business income before year end. It doesn’t matter what it is (or how much it is), the first step is to choose what you want.
Once you know what you want, write it down. It may be something like this: ”I am earning $500,000 as fast as possible.”
Ambitious people tend to set bigger goals.
Once you have your goal written down, your job is to read this goal once EVERY MORNING WHEN YOU FIRST GET UP.
A small caveat. People who have lower self esteem tend to be less likely to risk failure (or success); they are also less likely to handle the obstacles that will likely surface from pursuing bigger goals that are outside of their comfort zone (like attracting larger sums of money).
If that’s you, here’s what I suggest. Work on your self esteem and self confidence first. You do that by creating a powerful self image. That will put everything in line for you. You can get started here: 3 Tips to Build Self Confidence
Step 2: Get Into the Experience of Having It Now
Once you know what you want, you want to get into the experience of having it NOW.
If you want more money then you want to feel the abundance you would experience – not the money itself. A lot of people make this mistake. They screw up this whole abundance thing by trying to feel what it’s like to have an extra $1,000,000 dollars in the bank. And it doesn’t work because you don’t generate the feelings of abundance.
Money is not what turns people on. It’s what you can do with money. So what you really want to do is get into the experience of feeling abundant. You want to feel that you have more than enough money. You want to feel that you have more than enough time. You want to feel that you have more than enough food. You want to feel that you have more than enough health. You want to feel abundant in all areas of your life.

The second mistake a lot of people make is that they think they need to feel abundant every minute of every day. That’s total crap too.
You don’t need to feel abundant every minute of every day… in the beginning you’re only going to feel abundant for a few minutes each day. But that’s how this starts. As you keep at it, abundance will become your dominant way of feeling. It’s the repetition when done consistently over time that will transform your life. Click here to read more…
I had the craziest dream last night. Guess who I spoke with for 8 hours last night while I was sleeping? Tony Robbins. It’s the weirdest thing. I watched a few of his videos last night before going to bed and then I dreamed (and actually spoke with Tony) all night. This article covers my insights from Masterminding with Tony Robbins.
Power of the Master Mind
You might remember the term Master Mind and Hill’s formula for multiplying your brain power in his famous book Think and Grow Rich. In Hill’s book he refers to Master Mind as ” The coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.” Hill never says if the person you Mastermind with has to be real or imaginary, except in the second last chapter of his book he speaks about the “Invisible Counselors.”
If you take the concept of Masterminding and add imaginary characters, then what you’re doing is masterminding in your imagination. Using your mind, you create a round table of people (Invisible Counselors) you admire or feel are successful and ask them questions about the problem you want to solve. This is exactly what happened to me last night.
This dream was not something I planned or expected. It was completely unconscious and I’m not sure if I could repeat what happened. With that being said, I can tell you that the insights I’ve gained from this conversation with Tony Robbins have been very helpful and insightful.
Masterminding helps you solve problems in a big way. What you do is take the people you admire, respect and appreciate – the people who you would like to emulate – and you imagine them at a round table where you discuss your current problems and ask questions. The entire discussion takes place is your imagination.
Masterminding with Tony Robbins
I’d like to start by saying… I can’t believe how long I was dreaming about him! It seemed like the entire night – a full 8 hours – but then again it’s hard to judge. I’ve read that the mind processes information at much higher speeds when we’re asleep, so periods of time seem much longer than physical waking time. Click here to read more…
