Please, whatever you do, do not be swayed from your dreams by the naysayers who tell you that what you are proposing cannot be done. If I had listened to all of the naysayers throughout my life, I would probably be living in a cardboard box under an overpass in Bugtussle, New Hampshire. But luckily for me, I was too dumb at the time to know that my ideas would not work. As far as I am concerned, one of the very worst things that any person can do is to make financial and business decisions based solely on the advice of ignorant people who have never accomplished anything worthwhile in their entire adult lives! Yet, that is exactly what happens thousands of times a day all across America. Bright, ambitious people full of pep and vinegar listen to overly skeptical cynics, who repeatedly tell them that it cannot be done, and then they, too, believe that it cannot be done and end up doing nothing. So please do yourself a huge favor and stop listening to the world-class skeptics in your life, who are most likely immediate family members such as good old mom and dad, along with Brother Bob, Sister Sue, and Uncle Elmo, and close, personal friends. And I am not telling you to disown the naysayers in your life; I am just asking you to stop listening to them!
