In the context of traveling to China as a foreigner to conduct business, you will likely receive plenty of advice and insights from various people and sources. So if most business leaders receive training and guidance to assist with accomplishing their business objectives, the majority should be satisfied with their ROI and outcomes in China.

But the reality is quite the opposite, as most are left disappointed and frustrated compared to their initial expectations and forecasts.

Why?

It's the China Myth Dilemma, which allows wrong or out-of-context advice to create "comfortable" (mis-)perceptions that lead to foolish action. In order words, you are gradually causing your demise without realizing the flaws in your thinking and approach.

When we allow what our sources get wrong or out-of-context about China to lead to more severe myopia, our actions and resulting unsatisfactory outcomes (Reality A) can cause a negative, self-fulfilling prophecy loop. What we believe is wrong with China and corrupt about Chinese people causes us to respond accordingly, further straining our goodwill and capacity to develop genuine Guanxi relationships.
