Sure, an entrepreneur with blind faith has his disadvantages: He only hears what he likes, he only uses data to support his theories, he only picks partners who agree with him & he thinks customers who disagree ‘don’t get it’

He pursues the idea, while others wait & wonder its merits. He spends every available minute working on it, because he is so sold on it. He picks up pace.
When investors reject his idea, he calls them dumb. When others judge him & his idea, he judges them back for not seeing the future. They don’t slow him down. He keeps the pace.
He is not overwhelmed by risks that lie ahead, because he is so into the next few yards. He jumps over hurdles because he is already running. He does not second guess himself, not even when he hits a brick wall.
His eyes glitter when he presents his idea to collaborators – his enthusiasm gets him collaborators. He is not timid to meet customers because he knows his product is the best.
You won’t hear him say “I had that idea a while back, but I am yet to think it through”
