Running a business is not easy. The entrepreneur is capable of managing, organizing, anticipating everything, it is the health and sustainability of his business that depends on it.
“The optimist is the faith that leads to success. Nothing can be achieved without hope and trust. »
The entrepreneur is therefore the true master on board his company. He and only he is capable of giving the desired directions for the future. The question then arises as to what entrepreneurial profile is the most apt to lead a company down the path of success: the optimist who expects a lot from the future and gives it full confidence? Or the pessimist, fearful of the future and wanting to consolidate the foundations of their business as much as possible to face a turbulent future?
“If you have confidence in yourself, you will inspire confidence in others. »
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
First profile: the optimistic entrepreneur
At first glance, the optimistic entrepreneur is one who looks forward to the future with joy. Aware of the current health of his business, be it good or bad, he sees many opportunities for the future:
– Is the company in great difficulty today? Nothing to worry about! The future is full of good surprises that will finally give the company the boost it deserves to relaunch it financially on the path to success.
“Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain. »
– is the full economic boom of the company today. The future will necessarily perpetuate this situation, consolidate it and allow the company to maintain this perfect financial health, or even improve it.
“Action is the fundamental key to all success. »
The optimist necessarily sees something positive in the future. Not that he ignores all the current factors affecting his business, but the optimistic business leader is not fearful, on the contrary. He thinks that today is just a step towards a brighter tomorrow. For this reason, he does not hesitate to do everything possible so that his company is in the best conditions to open up to a happy future. Despite everything, the optimistic entrepreneur does not forget the present.
Second profile: the pessimistic entrepreneur
Another type of entrepreneur, much less serene before the arrival of the future: the pessimistic entrepreneur.
“Winners find ways, losers make excuses. »
Truly fearful of the dark days that await his company, the pessimist, however, does not hesitate to do everything possible to make the present of his company the best it can be. This will certainly not last, so there is an obligation to do everything possible so that the financial health of the company is impeccable and the consolidation of its activity. The approaching future may be made up of crises, difficult times, or many other dark situations. So let’s use the present to prepare in the best way, or rather the least bad way, for the future.
“When you can’t go back, you just have to worry about the best way forward. »
The pessimistic business leader does not see everything with dark eyes. He simply knows that the health of his company is only fleeting and that the future can obviously cloud this good situation. So he does not bet on that future in any way and does everything possible to act at the moment he thinks he can act: the present.
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
Optimistic or pessimistic…?
Finally, both of these profiles of entrepreneurs have unpleasant flaws and yet interesting qualities. Are you afraid of the future of your company and want to do everything possible today to seriously and rigorously consolidate the economic activity of your company? Don’t panic, this form of pessimism can only benefit you. The future is bound to bring good news and do you have full faith in the future? So do not hesitate to maintain your profile as an optimistic entrepreneur and continue to manage the present of your company as well as possible in order to welcome this brilliant future that is promised to you with open arms.
“The optimist and the pessimist are equally necessary for society, the optimist invents the airplane, the pessimist invents the parachute. »
