First, face fears. You may fear ditching a regular paycheck, working in isolation, what friends and family will say, you may fear failure, making mistakes, and ‘putting yourself out there.’ But, there is a lightbulb moment. Even the best entrepreneurs are not free from making mistakes. What sets them apart from others is their aptitude to face fears and celebrate victories.
Second, have an invincible conviction that you WILL succeed. No maybes, pure conviction. Forget about job stability, forget about being led, forget about the nine to five, and replace it all with a vision for your future.
Imagine your shift from employee to business owner, how your business will serve its audience, the success of its finances, and how it will grow in the short, medium, and long term. Envision it, visualize it with every bone in your body, let every thought blossom in your mind. And, know that you CAN achieve success. It’s a mindset, a mindset to be nurtured every single day.
Master your mindset and you’re more than halfway there to success.
Combine with a drive, energy and positive outlook, and you’re even a further way along the path.
And once you’ve visualized it?
Third, take action. Sure, it’s easy to come up with endless business ideas. Most people daydream. But how many ideas ever come to fruition? How often do we hear the phrases: ‘I don’t have enough time,’ ‘I don’t have enough money,’ ‘I’ll do it tomorrow?’
Sometimes you just don’t smell the roses when you go into your workplace any more. You’ve reached the pinnacle of your career and are hungry for something else or you may get a call from the Divine. Whatever the reason, decide to START.
Be like those who have acted on their dreams. Software giant Microsoft was founded in 1975, in the garage of a young college graduate named Bill Gates. In 1994, Amazon.com began as an online bookstore that operated out of Jeff Bezos’s garage in Bellevue, Washington.
