What if I told you there will never be a ‘perfect’ time to start your business? Life happens, it always does, our to-do lists never seem to grow shorter the older we get either. What if I told you to just start your business with what you have and to figure out the rest later? This concept seems to be one that many people shy away from, because there’s a common misconception that everything has to be perfect to start your business. Well guess what? It doesn’t! Although I will say you need the top essentials such as a solid business plan, name, logo, and mission statement. However, if you’re waiting for everything to be perfect and fall in line exactly how you wish. You’ll be waiting forever. It simply doesn’t happen that way…Nothing is ever 100% perfect in business. There is always a give and take.
The number one aspect that stops people from starting a business and creating the life of their dreams is: fear. Either it’s being afraid of who will support you, who won’t support you, who will talk about you, etc. Listen..if you don’t like being talked about, you do not need to open a business! Because all three will happen. The most important ingredient in starting a business is CONFIDENCE. Have confidence in yourself and what you have to offer and you are sure to go far.
Another reason is people are afraid of failure. It’s better to start something and fail at it, than to always sit back and wonder “what ifs”. If your business succeeds or if it fails you will still be that much more knowledgeable on business in your field. The last thing you want to do is look back 10, 20 years later and say ‘I wish I would’ve started that business’, or “I wish I would’ve been more fearless.’ Put the work in now, don’t worry abut how long it will take, because the time will pass regardless.
The main way to beat fear is confidence. The best way to build that is by learning yourself, learning what triggers those moments of doubt, and working/studying your ass off so you are always OVER-prepared for whatever may be thrown your way!
If you’ve been looking for a sign to start that business, practice, website that you’ve always dreamed of. Here it is. Stop procrastinating on your dreams. Stop thinking it will take too much time, because the time will pass anyway. Live fearlessly and watch how God blesses you!
