It is not a matter of clicking your heals and being transported to the success you envisage. Everyone has a different path and it can vary enormously, often filled with challenges, twists and turns and you may not be able to see or envisage the end point. Or if you can see the end, you may not be able to envisage the middle section, or what has to happen to move you from starting out to the end point of achieving your goals.
Take the first step and set yourself achievable goals and then take some time to visualize having achieved your goals. Make time in a quiet place and let your mind take you to having achieved your goals. What are you seeing? What are you telling yourself? Who are you with? Where are you? What is your role? See yourself as happy and fulfilled.
Make a start. You have all you need within you right now to get started. You do!!! If you are waiting for the right time, the perfect time to start, you could be waiting for years. So make a decision to take the very first steps. Take action and take the first steps toward your goals.
Surround yourself with positive successful people. Most likely these people will have been where you have been. Their path may have started out as windy and bumpy as well. In my experience successful entrepreneurs all have a story to tell of not being successful, of taking the hits, of being stuck, of starting out and finding building a business very challenging. You may be surprised at what you can learn from many entrepreneurs who have worked through the tough times.
Trust yourself, become a decision maker and be prepared to take risks. Taking risks is part of running a successful business. There is a saying – say yes and work out how. You can do this. Set the date, grab opportunities as they present themselves, be prepared get out of your own way and out of your comfort zone. Remind yourself of your expertise and skills and know that you have enough knowledge to take the right steps. What you do not know, you can learn along the way by continually educating yourself.
Work with a mentor. The very best of entrepreneurs have someone who is there for them. Having this support is paramount as you grow your business to the next level. (what ever the next level is for you) A great mentor will encourage, lead, challenge and support you to implement what you must have to grow your business.
Stop waiting and make a start today.
Success is there for those of you who are prepared to walk the road and overcome all that is thrown up at you. Know and understand why you are passionate about building your business and let that be your inspiration and keep taking steps toward your goals.
To your success,
