Stop Depending On a Partner

9 replies
I just realized something that has been holding me back.

Most of my ventures have been with partners.

While I have made a decent amount of money, I can't seem to get to the next level.

Ultimately though, I realized that the reason I couldn't reach the next level is because I was dependent on other people to give me permission to make moves.

I needed one of my partners to be on board....

I realized having a partner was an excuse for procrastination and not achieving my real goals. I wasn't relying on myself. This is a pattern I've noticed in all aspects of my life. Its an underlying personality trait that I need to combat.

Take a look at yourself and think about whether you're doing the the same thing.

If you are, try just doing a project completely by yourself and do ask Permission from anybody else to do it. Don't ask for their opinions on it either.

    The best partnerships are the ones that you don't NEED.

    My principle in life is not to depend to other people. Because it is only who can do and achieve what i want.

    Definitely agree. I was the same way at one point. I had to move on.

    Great topic, partnerships are good if they help you take your game to the next level, but probably dangerous if you need them just to survive (online of course)

    Some would also tell you to not tell others, or only a few key people about your dream until it's well on its way, because often times the people around you , will talk your ideas down. So sometimes it's good to do these things on your own.
    Good luck to you...
