Do you think you have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur?
Do you believe that you can own & run a successful business?
Have you ever asked these questions to yourself?
If we were sitting across a table right now, how would you respond If I asked you these questions?
Most importantly what is your response to yourself?
How did you or rather how did your mind react on being posed these questions the very moment you read it at the beginning here?
If you are someone like me and have a 9-5 job,chances are that the idea was quickly dismissed with not a million but a very few specific reasons or should I say perceived reasons why you cannot be your own boss and be successful.
Recently I’ve been having a lot of conversation about being allowed to work from home and it eventually leads to running your own business.I realized that a lot of people wish they could be running their own business but……..
There are reasons, not many, some are genuine, but are they showstoppers? I think not…..
How Can You Own a Successful Business & Be Your Own Boss?
I cannot tell you how to start a business or the things you should do to be a successful business man or a business woman, I simply cannot.
I could share insights, tips and habits you can build but in the end, it won’t work until you take action.
So if you’re really interested in eventually getting out of a 9-5 job, here’s a simple first step that you could do.
Go over the 2 questions again, take a paper and make a note of all the perceived short-comings/reasons/challenges/ obstacles and write them down.
[Don’t make these up, if you really have a passion for something or if there is something that you’ve always wanted to do, list what stopping you now]
- Draw a line next to it and in the next column write down, what can you do to get a meet the challenge, no matter how small a thing it is.
- Draw a third column and list how will you go about doing it & in how much time do you think you can get it done.
“What is the one thing that I can do today that can get me closer to getting over my obstacles”
Get Your Mind To Work For You
Keep asking these questions as often as you can throughout the day. If that is not possible do it the first thing in the morning and the last thing when you go off to sleep. (preferably after going through the table you’ve created)
Soon you will either build enough momentum & confidence (by taking little steps each day) and might actually get started or the worst thing that is going to happen is you might fail.
Nothing bad is going to happen to you, you’ll fail but that is 10x better than not trying.
