Do you have dreams of becoming a successful entrepreneur? Maybe the right idea just hasn’t come to you yet, or you’re simply too scared to take the steps that you need to take to get to where you want to be. Whatever the reasons may be, here are 7 suggestions to rocking a life and business you love:
2. BE OPEN TO MAYBE IDEAS
Instead of needing to feel ‘definitely’ about your ideas, be open to your maybe ideas working out too. Let go of the need to be perfect. You should be passionate about your ideas, yes, but it’s normal to feel a little trepidation about any idea. That doesn't mean it won't work. Maybe that thought you had about network marketing is worth pursuing, or expanding your cafe into the healthy snacks market is exactly what your business needs now. Brainstorm and write down every idea no matter what, and see where they lead you.
3. BE OK WITH STARTING AGAIN
Most entrepreneurs have to start again at some point - true entrepreneurs, anyway. You can’t get too attached to any one business. This is what business owners do, not entrepreneurs, and yes there is a big difference! Be OK, be excited, be smart and seize the new possibilities having learnt from the last.
5. WAKE UP WITH A PURPOSE
Never forget why you started your journey, or why you wanted to become an entrepreneur in the first place. Wake up each day with a purpose and remind yourself of what you're doing and why. Why is it important to you? What is it's purpose in the world? The world needs what you've got.
6. BE A PEOPLE PERSON
All great entrepreneurs are people smart. That is, they understand and read others, and can identity opportunities and potential hazards in people. They network. You need to get used to speaking to all different kinds of people, giving them direction, building connections, and getting ideas. Other people are key for making any idea that you have work.
“Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.”
7. TAKE BABY STEPS
You don’t have to go from where you are now to becoming a successful entrepreneur tomorrow. You simply take the first steps and the next steps and the next steps that you know will help you to get to where you want to be. Taking one huge leap can sound both scary and exciting but is often not realistic. Taking baby steps consistently will have you working towards your goals every day, and soon enough, they'll feel giant.
