2012: No Excuses!

by blogmistress on January 3, 2012

Being an entrepreneur is not for everyone. It requires a certain tolerance for risk taking. It requires a level of confidence in what you can accomplish. It requires tenacity when things get tough – when success takes more hours, more effort, more knowledge. It takes an ability to get things done with NO EXCUSES!

What excuses are holding you back?

  1. Not enough time – The fact is, people make time for what is important. They do what they want to do. You are not serious if you don’t have time to work on your business, but you find time to watch football games, go fishing, go shopping . . . You get the point. Sometimes, doing what it takes to grow your business is not the most pleasant thing you can be doing, but it is what needs to be done anyway. Are you committed? Just do it!
  2. Need more knowledge – Many people start their businesses before they are “experts”, but are very successful because they make learning what they need to know a priority. Just because you can bake great cookies doesn’t mean you will be a successful cookie business. You have to learn what you need to know about management, accounting, inventory, etc. Yes, there is a lot to learn, but if you wait until you know everything, you’ll never get started.
  3. Fear of rejection/failure – No one wants rejection. No one wants to fail. However, when you look at many successful entrepreneurs, they have been rejected many times, they have failed many times. The difference is, they adjust and keep moving forward. They don’t look for someone to blame. They understand that their success doesn’t depend on others. Failure and rejection are often an important part of success.
  4. Fear of success – People actually do fear success and success does bring it’s own challenges. What about success do you fear? Visualize success and how you will deal with the challenges and keep moving forward!
  5. Waiting for the right circumstances – If you are waiting for the perfect circumstances to get started, you may never start. You certainly should be aware of risks, but understand that no new business venture is without risks.

What excuse is holding you back. It’s a new year and time for new beginnings. 2012 – No Excuses! What do you think?
