Beware the Dream Crushers

Posted on: June 5, 2011

“People who abandon their dreams will try to crush yours” — Anon

People often shy away from pursuing their dreams because they are afraid of the cost, afraid to fail or because it’s easier to take the safe route. Moving outside your comfort zone is such a daunting challenge that many people never go there.

It is an unfortunate fact of human nature that misery loves company. When those who have abandoned their dreams see someone who seems willing to take on the challenges and risks involved in pursuing a dream a common reaction is to discourage them or scoff at their chances of success.

We call them Dream Crushers.

Beware the Dream Crushers. They will tell you it can’t be done and all the reasons you shouldn’t try. You are the only one who can decide if you are willing to do what it takes to achieve your goals. Some temporary discomfort and instability is often well worth the price.

Thank you, Mo! Your ears must have been burning because I was thinking about you while I was writing this piece. From a dream and a desire to help someone you love you’ve created this amazing company , MacNMos, from the ground up – and become successful so quickly! You are a role model for us all.
