We often hear about some incredible stories and success of people starting their own businesses and the things they achieve. Why is it we always think that other people can do things better than ourselves or can do more than ourselves? I find this to be a very interesting idiosyncrasy in the way we think.
In its simplicity, if someone else can do it, then so can you. What you should be asking yourself every day is, “Why not me?”
And here’s the truth in its purest form. If you really, really want it, and you can see it in your mind, you can have it in reality. You just have to really want it, make a committed decision and progress towards your object of desire. It does not matter what type of business it is.
Here are 6 very simple yet really powerful steps to help you in your endeavours:
1. Step In
And jump in full force. Don’t look back. Be ready to unleash the real you. Dream big.
2. Step Up
There’s always a blue print. Follow the process as someone else has been successful in the past so, follow their blue print. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel as you will have plenty of time to put your mark and your uniqueness into your business. Then set that incredible goal. Don’t worry about how you will do it. Always set the audacious, scary yet exciting goal first and commit to it. Work backwards – set where you want your business to be in 5 years, and work backwards from there to make it happen.
3. Step Through
Believe! Take progressive action and allow the universe to do what the universe will always do. In other words, set the goal, make your intentions known, be clear with your end goal and take up to 6 actions each day that will progress you towards your goal. Opportunities will come your way, doors will open and you will be closer each day to your goal. The biggest challenge for most people is that they stop before they even start.
4. Be Credible
To be credible you have to be authentic, you have to be you, you have to study, and you have to live your dream and goal. There are no shortcuts. People around you will feel your energy and know immediately if you are being authentic or not.
5. Get Connected
You are not alone. Expect to meet amazing and inspiring people. Reach out and learn from those who are where you want to be. It’s amazing how successful people love to share their experiences and help others do the same. Just be open to it.
6. Be Patient
Most importantly, be patient, enjoy the ride and be willing to give back unconditionally when it’s your turn.
