Do you want to start a business of your own?
“What does it take?”
“What is actually involved?”…you may ask yourself.
Starting a business has been very much misunderstood and as a result, caused a lot of unnecessary pain.
In this article, I have listed a number of things that you must understand and get right if you are thinking of starting a business.
It’s not about you. It’s about them.
It is about the people that you will serve. When you get started, you will notice that people actually don’t care who you are or how you talk. All they will care about is what you bring to the table. When you understand this, you “get out of your own way” and then focus on
It is not about the money!
Life is about adventure, do it for adventure. This is the reason for doing what you are passionate about. Life is about a story that you will eventually tell.
You have all it takes to win inside of you.
Many who start out in business start by, unfortunately, looking at what they don’t have. All you will ever need is what is inside you. You don’t need anything else.
Ever come to think about this; some of the biggest companies we have today started off in a garage. Am I right to say they have everything they needed? Of course, I am right, the proof is, they have massively grown to date.
You don’t need to wait till you have it all figured out.
“As you start to walk on the way, the way appears” … Rumi
This is one of the mistakes that many commonly make; they wait till they have it all figured out. Remember that the plan will always change and this is because you will continuously learn while you get along.
There is no failure until you quit.
Quitting is the absolute guarantee of failure. Failure doesn’t exist for the one who will not give up.
Everything and anything you do adds to your experience and to the person who you eventually become. This means all things you do are actually of value, even if you don’t necessarily find success Immediately or later change course.
Also, changing course doesn’t mean failure at all, it means you made a decision to make a change.
These things are very important to keep in mind when planning to start a business.
Your journey is not going to be easy.
It is going to be worth it.
