"Dare to be naive."
-- Buckminster Fuller
I'm naive about a number of things, and I don't have the slightest problem with it. It is a risk I am happy to accept and take. Some people find this hard to believe, but I don't care. It really doesn't matter what they think, so that makes it easy.
I'm not naive about everything. I've been around a while and seen the way a lot of things work and know the methods and protocol in many things. Still, I think being naive about other things is exciting and makes my life much more interesting. I have something to learn and I'm willing to learn it as I go. There is great power in knowing that I don't need to know everything.
I'm naive about my business. That's one of the best things about it. I am learning something every day and I learn it from other people, business partners, clients, the Internet--a wide variety of methods. I find joy in that learning.
I was naive about starting a website/Internet marketing business. I still am. It's the best thing that could have happened because, frankly, if I would have known more, I might not have made the move. And, I'm so glad I did, but I had to figure it out and this is the power for me, because we have figured out some pretty cool things that really set us apart from the crowded Internet services marketplace.
It is my innocence or naivete that keeps me moving forward and allows me to be open to learn from anyone who decides to teach--especially experience by trying things and brainstorming and inspiration. Indeed, it is my naivete that helps me find more inspiration every day.
Yes, I dare to be naive and I find joy in it too. Try it. You might find it beneficial as well.
