Being in business is NOT easy, and it is not for everybody. So, I don’t want people to think it’s a walk in the park, because, if it was easy, everybody would be doing it.
Doing well in business is all about doing the right things at the right times, and as an entrepreneur you are responsible for everything.
Everything you do, all your actions, are responsible for everything that you have right now, and pretty much everything that you’ve ever done up until this point. Your actions are a consequence of everything you have in your life. Everything that you’ve ever read or not read or participated in or not participated in; is a consequence of where you are at right now.
So direction is incredibly important. You have the ability to choose which direction you go in. If you head off in the wrong direction it’s going to take you a long time to get where you want to go.
Just as in life, before we begin any journey, we need to know where you want to go. You don’t get in a car and just drive off hoping to get there. We need to know the destination, and that will determine the direction we take.
Ask yourself before building your business; were do you want to go? What do you want to achieve as a business owner? What is the purpose? What do you want it to look like when you’re finished? The answers to these questions will determine the direction to take, and the small goals needed in between, to achieve along the way, as we get closer to our vision.
Every budding entrepreneur wants to know; “What’s the secret?” What is the step by step formula to success? Unfortunately, there is no formula; the hard truth is there is no Holy Grail; you have to decide the destination you want to get to, and get onboard and go. Take Action now.
One thing you can’t recycle is wasted time. – Harold V. Melchert
So to summarise, we need to choose where it is you want to go and take immediate steps to get there. Choose the destination, and take action now, and move in the right direction.
