Seven years ago this month, I started my own business
Seven things you need to be successful in your own business and maybe in life.
You need Confidence – you need confidence in yourself and this confidence can grow over time. I know mine has, not to say that it doesn’t wane from time to time.
You need Determination and Perseverance to see it through. Sometimes, it feels like the easy solution is to just give up. And that can happen with a business or any goal you are working towards. Yes, and some days are tough. And some days there are struggles and negative thinking and emotions to overcome. But you get up anew every day and keep on going.
You have to Believe that it is possible for you. One of the best ways to know this is to look for others who have done what you want to do and model their thinking and behaviors.
You need to be Flexible and Creative. You need to be able to take a step back and re-evaluate what is working and what isn’t. Where are you holding yourself back? What are you doing that you should stop doing? What could you be doing that you are not?
Most of all you need Support. Don’t even attempt to do it all on your own. I am enormously grateful to my family, friends, coaches, etc who have supported me through this process.
