Entrepreneurs ignore their parents (sometimes)

entrepreneur parents


Fact: Your parents love you. They do not want you to be hurt.


Having lived life, they know the only way to avoid pain is to avoid taking risk.


That’s why your parents always give you bad advice.


Taking risk is the only path to growth. Personal, social and financial growth. Your growth is a function of Darwinian evolution.


Without taking risks you cannot fail. Without failing you cannot grow.


Your parents know this, but their love for you forces them to ignore reality and push you down the path of no risk.


From the age of 25, always consider doing the opposite of what your parents advise.


Unless your parents don’t love you. In which case you have bigger problems.
