Find your passion.
Have you ever felt like you are being tossed about by the wind? With an entrepreneurial mindset, it is easy to come up with sound business ideas. However, coming up with a business idea does not mean you can execute that idea. You may lack the skills. Moreover, you may lack the passion to do so.

Your business should not be like that job you hate. It should be the job you love. Your business is a long-term endeavor. Will you find the same joy throughout your business life?

[ ] Gardening business [ ] Carpentry business
It would be better for John Doe to start a carpentry business. Carpentry would be where his skills and passion lie.
To find your passion do a self-assessment. Think about your personality. What are your goals? Assess your attitudes, your motives, your hobbies, your ambitions.
To start your business, it is good to take some time to assess yourself. See how you fit into your business idea.
Aside from being the entrepreneur and business owner, learn the best role you can play. This will contribute to the success of your business. What are your qualifications, your experience, your expertise, your knowledge?
If you can identify your passion you can turn it into a lucrative business. You will feel more at ease, doing something you love. Even more, that wind will not toss you around. You will have full control of your direction. Your motivation relies on your passion. Finding your passion will skyrocket your desire for having a successful business.
Drive & Self-Motivation
Let your drive to win keep you moving forward.
The fact that you desire to start a new business shows passion and motivation. One of the critical aspects of being successful is to keep that drive and motivation to succeed.
Some businesses fail, not just because of the lack of demand, but lack of self-motivation. That drive to stay focused to work hard to win does not exist.
You may have a lifelong dream to own a business. Getting more money may be the deciding factor for you to have your own business. Even interpersonal achievements of being successful could self-motivate you to business startup.
You must find what really motivates your business idea. Your motivation to create a business will drive you to start your business.
Keep dreaming and planning and stay focused on your vision.
Do the work diligently.
Hard work pays off, right. Listen, hard work is not for the faint of heart. In most cases, you will only get as much as you put into it.
Some of the brightest people in the world fail without the discipline it takes to work hard. It would be better to think about how much you are going to get done toward growing your business in one workweek. Instead of starting a new business, so you do not have to work 40 hours per week.
If it is not working, do not be afraid to change it. One of the biggest advantages of being an entrepreneur is the ability to make decisions. Do not be afraid of reaching for the stars. Your business idea may change over time. With hard work, you can spot when you need to change an aspect of your business and make the necessary changes, so you can be successful.
Launch your business idea with resilience. One reason entrepreneurs give up on their business journey is the lack of resilience. How could resilience help you on your entrepreneurial journey?
Oxford dictionary defines resilience as:
“The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties or toughness”
Resilience is also the ability to spring back into shape. When you are resilient you can recover at a fast rate from difficulties and setbacks.
Couple your passion for your business idea with resilience. You must love your idea so much that if it fails, you will pick yourself up, dust yourself off and go at it again. Even the best entrepreneurs may suffer setbacks or failures.
Mike Norton says:
“Never say that you can’t do something, or that something seems impossible, or that something can’t be done, no matter how discouraging or harrowing it may be; human beings are limited only by what we allow ourselves to be limited by: our own minds. We are each the masters of our own reality; when we become self-aware to this: absolutely anything in the world is possible. Master yourself, and become king of the world around you. Let no odds, chastisement, exile, doubt, fear, …. prevent you from accomplishing your dreams.”
If you suffer business startup setbacks you may want to give up. But being resilient will help you when you hit some bumps along your journey to start your business. You may even switch gears and realize the business you are starting was not the same as you had idealized.
So even if you face setbacks in starting your business idea, be resilient and press on. Leap and remember that persistence will help you to try again if you fail first.
Be committed to your entrepreneurial journey.
Commitment means “the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity,”
You must be confident your idea is doable. Even if other persons think your business journey is a waste of time and will be unsuccessful. Your confidence will strengthen your dedication to pursuing a business idea.
You will also pursue that business idea with enthusiasm. This will show your commitment to work at achieving your business goals.
You must trust your business idea. Dedicate yourself and practice responsible efforts to executing your business plan. This will help you to lead your business to success.
