Be honest. How many times have you wanted to start your own business, but never did because you allowed the fear of failure, judgment or rejection to stop you before you even started? If I'm being honest I’ve done it myself, which is one of the reasons why I wrote this book in the first place. The question of why we do it isn’t as important as how do we change it? Thankfully, there’s a book for that, and you happen to be reading it right now. The decision to start a business is a delicate one. Much is to be considered, and it can leave you feeling intimidated, but the actual power to overcome these mental obstacles really lies in the act of getting started...
What bothers you? Do you have a need for something that no one on the market seems to be addressing? More than likely, if you have an issue with it, many others do, too. By creating a business that focuses on solving your own problem, you just may end up solving it for millions of others at the same time. The message here is to allow yourself permission to consider all possibilities. Give your mind the freedom to think "outside" the box because doing so will only expand your creativity. Also, don't allow other factors such as what other companies have done or are doing to deter you from anything you may be considering...
The actual launching of a business is a very significant milestone for an entrepreneur. It's the day you introduce to the world what you have created, reflecting many days of hard work, sacrifice, and dedication. It also proves that you can execute a plan to the end. And while all of this will be an exciting time for you, don't forget that your job is not over. In fact, it is just beginning. That is why I strongly urge you not to allow this period of celebration to kill the momentum you've built thus far. It may get tempting to want to take a break and bask in your accomplishment, but this will be the time where, believe it or not, you will need to hustle even harder...
