Have you ever had a great idea shot down by your friends or family?
Friends and family love us. They want to see us succeed. They want to protect us.
Because of these great intentions, great ideas are often shut down. Great ideas push against convention. Great ideas are hard. Great ideas carry risk.
What would happen if the next time someone approaches us with a great idea, we say “Wow, this idea has got you so excited. This gets me excited. I don’t know much about it, but please tell me more!”
Thanks for caring!
