We all agree that it is not easy to start a new business. Instead of directly doing business activities, beginners are usually stuck with their bustle which distanced themselves to start the actual business activities. They are busy making business cards, choosing fonts or company logo, or thinking about the valuable business concept. This condition sometimes happens until weeks or months without doing the real business.
How much [quantity] and how well [quality] you harvest [reap] is dependent on the quantity and quality of the seed you planted [sow]. Farmers have discovered the secret of success; they sow as much as they want to reap. They spend the majority of their time planting and cultivating rather than hunting, because they have realized that what you grow [plant and cultivate] yields a far greater returns than what you get [hunt and kill].
Take Action Quickly – You must imitate how an infant is learning to walk. When he falls, he will always wake-up to try walking again; he is never surrender; he learns to walk with his small steps. You must have those attitudes when you are starting a business. You must immediately take action, although you just do a little, short, and small step. You have to realize your working list. You must be focus, because it will reduce the fear and strangeness that you are facing. The doubt can only be lost by the action.
Note that I suggest writing a “draft” of your business plan. This is to reinforce the concept that your business plan will always be a work in progress and you don’t have to get it perfect. It’s the process of doing the plan and updating it regularly that is useful.
If we did do a trip to Africa, it would be easier and simpler if you had one bank account for the trip only. If there were any questions about what you spent on the trip, you could simply go to the bank account and get a lot of the details that you would need. This is similar to your adventure in We want to hear from you.
Another wrong mindset they have, is they believe that they can do all things by themselves. They lack a learning attitude, which is to be humble and learn from mentors in their team. Their mentors are willing and committed to teach them, however, many of them always want to do ‘their own way’ and refuse to listen to the action steps laid out by their mentor. As a result, they are not implementing the proven methods to success, and hence, failure is inevitable. And this brings me to the final reason.
When you find out which business fits the requirements better than any other business, you must have the personal strength and commitment to focus only on that business. Stop trying out something else every week that sounds good. Stick with the P.E.R.F.E.C.T. home business you discovered in step one and work at it until you make it a success. Yes, it will take some work. Expect it. And it will almost certainly take longer than you think. So what? Wouldn’t it be worth it to finally make your home business dream a reality?
Remember Your Dreams – When your business has started to run, you do not be afraid to come out from your comfort zone. Tell yourself, “Now, I have got my own business. It is time to make my business getting bigger.” You can change the goals and create new dreams to refresh your spirit like in the beginning running a new business.
