As an entrepreneur, there’s a distinct habit that you must possess at each stage, whether starting, building or growing your business. This one habit coupled with your ideas is what turns your dream of a successful, profitable business into the reality you live, breathe and enjoy. So, what is that habit? It’s the habit of implementation.
It doesn’t matter what business you’re in, whether you’re selling jewelry or whether you’re a motivational speaker. If your business is going to succeed you must consistently take action and implement. Note the keyword “consistently”.
Often times what keeps entrepreneurs from achieving higher levels of success and profits is their past. You know those things that were supposed to happen one way but didn’t turn out as you’d planned. If you allow them to control the present moment you will be hard pressed to move forward in your life and business. Why? Because you “consistently” rewind and replay an old cassette tape that reminds you of that one bad thing that happened in the past.
Don’t worry. There’s a cure! Rid your mind of the “what if…again” thoughts.
“What if I fail again?”
“What if it doesn’t work again?”
When you find yourself thinking these kinds of thoughts, stop and grab a piece of paper and write down all the reasons it can work. This may not be an easy exercise because those old thoughts will continue to come up. Keep writing until you have at least 10 reasons why your ideas can and will work.
There are a lot of entrepreneurs with excuses and there are a lot of entrepreneurs who will settle for nothing less than results. You create your reality by the thoughts you think. And those thoughts will keep you stuck or they will create MEGA results and success for you. It’s your choice.
