Over the years, there are many changes that have taken place with regard to work. Most people have turned their home into places of work with many of them opting to quit their offices and work at home. This has not only helped them to be their own bosses but also freed them from the employers who tend to rule what happens around the office.
Greed and selfishness is a poor motivator at best and your soul will only suffer from the injustice of such motives. I won’t even get into why over 80% of start-up businesses fail in their first year according to USA Today. Instead, learn to turn your dreams, passions and the problems associated with Entrepreneurship into opportunities to benefit others.
Now what about the tasks that aren’t worth your value, but you enjoy doing it? Do it yourself. If those little brainless tasks give you a sense of break, opportunity to unwind, then it is the value. Don’t pay someone else to give yourself a break.
Don’t let family constantly interrupt when working from the house. Interruptions can have a big impact on your productivity, so advise your friends and family as to your work hours and when you will be available to them. Express the need for privacy in your Entrepreneurship business and quiet and that it will make you finish up sooner. Children should be supervised by another family member, but you should be available in the event of an emergency.
There are always some risks involved in any new mission and you have to be prepared to assess these risks, as they present themselves. Everyone, one way or the other takes risks in life. However, most of the risks most people take are the ones that do not bring about any life changing success. Rather, it is the difficult ones that bring the unbeatable prosperity that most people stay away from. In my favorite David and Goliath story, though King Saul offered part of his kingdom as well as good riches to any man that is able to conquer Goliath, everyone stayed away, including the most experienced soldiers of Israel. It was little David who risked his life, fought Goliath, and conquered him. No wonder he later became the king of Israel and very rich.
Every successful entrepreneur I know started from humble beginnings. Well, here’s mine. I started out as a nobody. That’s right – a nobody. I had no market, no list, no skills, no business to speak of. Yet today I have a list of nearly 55,000 clients. Why is that? I believe it’s because one day I decided enough was enough. I was tired of drudging around and decided to do something with my life. I was tired of people telling me what to do at work and having my financial and time freedom dictated by others. So I quit my job, and started my own business.
But at first you will work around the clock. Yes that’s right, be sure to let your other bosses know that you need to work around the clock and on weekends.
Like the roller coaster with its ups and downs, the roller coaster car does have a destination. The same is true with your entrepreneurship ride. Stay on track. Continue to persevere and you may just end up as the next self-made business man or woman – rich and successful based on your own actions.
