Top Eight Common Business Myths That Can Kill Your Dream Today
Hmm! that thing, that worries your mind every day. But why are you so worried about the thing that makes you procrastinate?
Many people get it so wrong by thinking like this “I need good or big capital for that business “; or even some people prefer to say it like this “if I had had the capital for that business, I would have been I millionaire by now”.
I love it when you use those future tenses to express yourself, but it only pains me you don’t even understand it yourself.
Firstly, don’t you know that “I wish” is an idle or a procrastinator’s phrase?
I mean, they are words that belittle your mindset (which is the powerhouse of your dream). They are words that make you feel like “you cannot do it”.
Why you can’t now forget those words today and decides now to choose another set of words which are “I am doing it this small so that I will do it that big”.
This is exactly what you need to start it. You don’t have to wait till you get that promised amount of money; there is a quote that says “sometimes promise looks like an achievement to a dependent man, which rather waste their time”.
Just start it somewhere; buy a hen today and start to rear it till you can afford another one tomorrow. Wait for them to reproduce, and then add them up and up till your poultry farming is ready.
That is the idea, ladies and gentlemen, if you have been told to think like the rich, it is not that you should plan up to their extent but plan to your own future taste.
I can assure you that, there is nothing bad in starting a business with little capital depending on the size of your pocket.
So, stop waiting, start it small today…
Yeah! You need a good or a promoting location for your lucrative business. The exact site you need to make sales.
But let me ask you something, is it that too bad to help bring your business closer to those around you? I mean those that go a long way to get what you can offer, but which is now at their doorstep.
Well, let me elaborate, having a business is to have a brand which must pervade and persuade the audience. And the best way to achieve this is to target the mass audience which comprises of locals and communal lives.
If you can start it where you are now, the next thing for you is to dream for the next location which will be another business branch, and before you know, you start to have branches.
No location is too bad; there is the only bad personality that swallows goodness. Your personality is the location that will attract the audience, that if, it is good.
So, start your business today with a good personality that will move it beyond that one branch. You don’t have to be afraid of where you are anymore, you should only be afraid of where it will take you too.

Furthermore, in this article top eight common business myths that can kill your dream today, I will like to lay emphasis on “instant profits” the pertinent issue of destruction, which needs to be addressed painstakingly before it washes away many dreams into the ocean.
Due to the keen and curiosity in man to make money, many firms or businesses (which are the dreams of some people) today has gone south and some ruined into dilapidation.
A business drive should never be only income motivated but also should embrace your emotional drives, which includes passion, zeal, enthusiasm and all other internal strength that should support your dream.
What has been trying to say is that don’t allow the will to acquire quick and excess money rush you or rather don’t let money drives rush you to a business, but instead let your passion drive you.
Because money may not come so fast and easy at some time, which may constrain your dream. But when your passion is the driver, then no matter what you encounter in the business will ever regulate your interest or frustrate you.
Many people today want to venture into one or two businesses in the hope that, as soon as they commence, it will start to yield a greater amount of money for them. But later in the end when things did not come their way, they subjected to a belief or theory.
Let me tell you something, Dangote, Bill Gate, Mark, and others, do not become a millionaire in a year.
That is just the fact. So, don’t expect what you want to do or what you are doing now will make you a millionaire within a short period of time. Well, it could, if it’s not legit (and this ruin life very fast).
Target audience /customer
The rush or anxiety of many to mobilize customers at a large ratio, quickly and rapidly; has now become the clog in the wheel of many progress. Many business dreamers today had buried their dream since; because of the fear of to audiences or customers mobilization.
This is one of the top eight common business myths that can kill your dream today too at a blink of an eye. Something new is fresh and should attract fresh views, That is, your new business will at first looks new to the people.
And they will only come in plenty not until your products or services is familiar to them. Thus, as your business expands will it be attractive to the people. So, package well your business (with the passion in you) and then wait for your customers to come gradually and rapidly.
Fear of Competition
This is one of the ideas that can damage a business or things that can kill your dream for a business. Some people are already afraid of competition before even setting up a business.
You haven’t started, but you already doubt it because of one assumption that “it is one of the most competitive businesses in the market”. Is that not what you say? Hmm!
Hey! Friend, why not face your own niche and let your passion drives you to that market. I believe there is an economic term for “the competition” which is “economy rivalry”. The one that tells, you should always long to enter into the platform of “the great competitors”, predominantly, to expand your business.
If you are still part of those that have this fear of competition that is one of the contents in this article on “top eight common business myths that can kill your business dream today”.
Then it is time for you to conquer this fear and understand that “competition is just the keystone to fame and to a flourish sale”.
Here is also one of the top eight common business myths that can kill your business dream today.
Please, what is even genuine or new?
A genuine or new thing is only that thing that you make special and beautiful for yourself. I mean the one that suite your idea.
Many dreamers today seek to capitalize on a brand new idea before choosing a business to do. But this is for so long had been the villain in their story, as it brings it to the tragedy of procrastination, which kills dreams so fast so good.
You don’t have to think of what new or what is new in or to the market before you start your business. Because, there is nothing new but only those things you can rebrand, package and sell genuinely to your target audience. This is exactly what makes your products or services new or genuine.
There is no new or genuine thing you want to introduce to the market but there is always room for a new and genuine way of marketing, in which, you can also introduce to your own business.
So my friend, stop postponing your dream today because one “new thing you only wish to introduce” but instead, just start doing something genuinely.
Fear of Risk
Risk! Risk! Dear friends, I will only lie to you if I say there is no risk in business. But, I won’t also want to be untruthful by evading the truth that “risk is just the goal for an alternative that boosts the business”.
Now let go…
The risk in business is normally to be the precaution that needs to be considered before and after establishing any business; and not the equipment of destruction in the business.
A lot of people are always afraid of the risk in business and rapidly or even retrogressively change their dream. Like the risk of failure that has led many students into the early ruin stage of their career in school.
This is also what happens to the dream that has fear especially the fear to take the first step to it (which is a risk). Many dreams had been buried a long time ago because the dreamer was afraid to take a step. But I pray your own case won’t be the same, Amen.
So, if you want to make a change, then, be ready to change and take the risk today…
Many of us today agitate too much, thus always hasting to have our dream comes to reality in just a short period of time. An example of this is the long for quick or faster promotion, that is, the quick advert that will persuade the people.
Because you want to sell out your company doesn’t tell that you should expect that quickly. Place your advert anywhere you wish, promote it with all knowledge you acquired, but don’t haste for a quick result people don’t get used to new thing easily they use it till they are used to it.
So, your Advert does not say that it will reach the people faster than time and still put them into action quickly. But it will have to wait for some time until it starts to yield.
No true success comes easily, and without the great mind of a great man; that is the reason behind the words ” man thinks to live, and man lives to think”. so make the choice today on which life you want to choose to live now and how you will leave it. Thanks for reading my article, and I hope by now you have changed that focus you had before on business.
