Tunnel-Vision

Tunnel-Vision

"It doesn’t matter how far you might rise — at some point, you are bound to stumble. Because if you’re constantly doing what we do — raising the bar — if you’re constantly pushing yourself higher, higher, the law of averages predicts that you will, at some point, fall. And when you do, I want you to know this, remember this: There is no such thing as failure — failure is just life trying to move us in another direction." - Oprah Winfrey 

This picture represents everything about a fixed mindset, more commonly referred to as "tunnel vision". It's enchanting and easy to follow. 

There's a clear path and a clear end.

What you may not have noticed, is that the tunnels are also getting smaller. We usually talk about closemindedness as stagnant, but we rarely realize that it's actually worse. 

It shrinks as it goes on.

Sheep

"The unexamined life is not worth living" - Socrates

Entrepreneurs cannot be sheep by definition.  Without some form of differentiation, they cannot survive. They would quickly die out with the rest of the copycats and sheep.    

Asking yourself the tough questions about why your business should be a business before launching is critical.  

The opposite guarantees sheepdom .

Don't be a sheep. Don't follow the herd.  Look inward.  Explore what makes YOU tick.  Then take action. 🤓💪

"Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center. Big, undreamed-of things—the people on the edge see them first." Kurt Vonnegut

Entering a saturated space is no excuse for lacking creativity. Dare to fail. Leave the comfort zone and start getting comfortable on the edge.
