Change Your World with the Four’s D of Success™
Desire, Determine, Drive and Deliver™
So many individuals talk about starting a business. They have endless conversations about being a business man or business woman and about being their own boss. Yet, they dream without activating their dreams. This is as far as they will ever go – talking about their undeveloped dreams and never experiencing the reality of their dreams.
We all have desires of what we each want to achieve. The question is, how strong is your desire to achieve your dreams?
To help you move closer to your dreams here are a few steps you can take:
First, write down specifically what it is that you desire. What kind of business do you want? Whatever your business desire is, make sure it is something that you will enjoy doing. Once you have identified specifically what type of business you desire, you will be more adapt to move to the next step.
Secondly, be determined to follow the necessary steps to achieve the desires in starting your business. There are specific steps that you must take to establish a business and you should follow through each step to achieve a positive outcome. Although, I cannot layout a written plan in this article, I do suggest that you develop a business plan to help guide your business development process. You can obtain a business plan outline and guide through various online resources.
Once you have developed your business plan you must put the plan into action. Starting a business requires endless hours and dedication because your work has now begun. You must follow through the process with the drive needed to achieve each step in the business development. Consistent, high energy is required to achieve the results you desire.
Becoming your own boss is not an easy task and surely not achieved between a 9-5 schedule. If your plate is full from which you are currently working, then get a bigger plate; get a platter to work from. You must increase the mental framework of your thoughts to handle the increased tasks that need to be completed. You may have responsibilities for a job, children, etc. and now you are adding more responsibilities for your personal grwth. Don’t say, “This is too much”, develop a new mindset to enlarge your plate to a platter. Increase your energy level to achieve all that is necessary for a successful outcome.
Be determined to reach your goals for success. When you follow a plan to establish a business, the real work begins once the business is in operations. As a business owner, be prepared to work more than eight hours a day and more than five days a week. Be mindful of expenses as income and profits may not come instantly.
