Points to Ponder on below:
- Entrepreneurs?act and think totally different.? Their reasoning is also on a different level.? They take chances which is frightening and daunting at times.
- Entrepreneurs test their own ability ongoing.
Do you think you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur, and if so when will one know it is the right time?
Listening to Your?Entrepreneurial Inner Being
Somewhere inside you, there has been a faint little voice you have been silencing years already. It sometimes shouts out loud, or perhaps for you, in its silence, hurts your ears, screaming out, that you can be an entrepreneur, you can, try it, go for it. Have you been overwhelmed with these voices in your mind and soul?
Whose?Bank Account are you Filling Up?
A major way of thinking, are you putting in a 9 to 5 hour?s day job?for somebody else to get rich, with your talents and skills? This is mostly the reason people leave their day jobs to start building their own empire. Makes sense, doesn?t it?
Your Own Choice
Sadly, there is no magic wand to sway and all will fall in your lap. No, you must get up, put your big?Thinking-Cap?on, and go out there and make entrepreneurship work for you. It all starts with a choice that only you can make for yourself.
Stability, you have it to be an Entrepreneur?
Stability is the question we all weigh up when leaving our set monthly income, from our day jobs.?I have been on the entrepreneurial pathway some time already, and have not once, but many times thought to pack it up, rather go back to 9 to 5 job working for somebody.? But then doors open again, and I take the adventure another step further, and get new hope knowing if I had of stopped then, I would have been the only one left on the deserted island, as nobody is going to come and say oh so sorry, lets pick you up!
No, that?s the first mistake, you are on this road yourself, who you bring in?alongside?you on?route, is not the alpha and the omega. You still have the ownership of the choice, you, and only you have made. Do you think you have it?
The Mustard Seed
From childhood days, we hear stories to have faith like a mustard seed! Have you ever taken the trouble to see the size of one?? Now?you ask, is that all I need? Yes, sure I can have that amount of faith, I hear you! Not so fast, read further to my entrepreneur journey, do you have it?
Entrepreneurship can be like a see-saw, success one would not have dream? t of in your wildest dreams, or downfall into the darkest,?deepest pit, to never crawl out of? Scary hey! Sadly true!
Failure has a way to either make you more determined to find another way to make things work, or could have another route, just give up. What do you have in you, try again, or stop here, as it seems just like way too much trouble? Marketing your dream is a job on it?s own, do you have it in you?
- Work and perseverance cannot kill you, it is you yourself that kill your vision.
- Possibilities?will?always?arise to start your own?business?do you have the making?
My current job has no satisfaction in it any more, in fact it never did. I had to follow orders from when I walked in?the office,?until?I leave for home-time.? Nowhere is there place to grow my own potential and character and passion to try new things.? I am in a rut,?my Boss?s lookout is,?do what I say, and how I say, while you at my premises, after all I pay you at the end of a month.?Nobody is irreplaceable,?can easy replace you.? These are thoughts and words you might have also heard.
Will this make you think the entrepreneur route might just be for you?
Life is Not Always Sunshine
Do keep in mind that we all have some bad days at our jobs and that should not be the reason why you resign to start your own business.? Again, life happens, and one must be able to work through tough times without running away each time.
My final decision was when I no longer wanted to make somebody else wealthy, with my hours of working for him to fill his bank balance, where I could be loading mine, and my families.
Hunger for being my own Boss
Your business idea is in your mind when you wake up, when you go to bed, when you have a walk, always. This is then something inside you spurring you on to think further than just your current day job.? Perhaps take time and explore that inner voice of yours.
Blogs are so encouraging to read up about other people?s road towards becoming and entrepreneur.
You will learn more than you think as you gain new skills. You can learn to design your very own website, never thought you could? Take a look at our course, you have much more potential than you ever thought possible.
Passion to enrol at entrepreneurial talks and seminars should be high on your to-do list.? It is here, that you mix with people that strive to want more in life than just the normal 9 to 5 job.? You meet people who have walked the road and are walking the road of being an entrepreneur.? Seminars encourage you to have that mustard seed faith, and hope, knowing the road you are treading on,?is to eventually,?be your own Boss. We have various programmes to support and encourage you along the way.
Charming speakers enticing you how money can be made fly by night ways are only there to entice?you?and?waiting to rope those guys in that have no idea what entrepreneurship is about.? They think money?money?money, but entrepreneurship is actually work?work?work, money comes in, and goes right back into work?work?work?again. This is the true entrepreneur road travelled, if you want to be successful. Find a business that interests you, not somebody else.
Here at these Seminars, talk to experts, how they have risen above hurdles, most of them will be too glad to share their experiences.?This surely encourages us, we need to hear stories like these to keep us focused on the end result we aiming for.
