If you take yourself too seriously, you will suffer, because so many things just won’t go your way as an entrepreneur. The only alternative to humor is frustration and anger, which completely curtails your ability to solve problems and innovate.
Without a sense of humor, you’ll be less creative. Numerous studies confirm a strong link between creativity and humor.
If you have extremely audacious goals, you have to see the humor in a situation where you think you will massively disrupt the status quo with limited resources and a snowball’s chance in hell. Who do you think you are that you can change the way the world works?
You have to get a kick out of your situation if you want to succeed.
We know that there are humorless successful entrepreneurs out there. It can be done. It’s just such a waste of a great lifestyle, from our perspective. There’s so many opportunities for humor in entrepreneurship!
