Being your own boss and building a successful business can be an exhilarating experience, but for many, it can also be a difficult and challenging process. For those who choose to take the route of becoming an entrepreneur, there are certain obstacles that may stand in the way of reaching financial success.
This video will explore why so many people struggle when it comes to being their own boss and building a business from the ground up and what to do about it…
Okay, so here is a very big reason, a lot of entrepreneurs struggle when it comes to building their businesses.
Now, when I’ve talked about this with many of my clients, it causes these huge aha moments and it helps them start seeing things differently and doing things differently, which helps them get much better results in their business faster.
Okay, so what are we talking about here?
We are talking about when you’re stuck thinking like an employee.
So here’s the thing, you have to change your thinking to be your own boss.
It means you have to motivate yourself because there’s no one hanging over your shoulder telling you to do the daily activities.
When you’re an employee, you know if you don’t do your job, you’re gonna lose your job, you’re going to get fired and you’re gonna lose your income…
But, when you’re your own boss, there’s nobody to fire you, and there’s no one pushing you to do those daily activities that you need to do to make the money that you want.
As an entrepreneur, as your own boss, you have to push yourself to do those activities all by yourself.
Now you can have a coach or be part of a team and all those kinds of things.
People encourage you and poke you with the stick once in a while.
But at the end of the day, it’s up to you, your success is up to you.
So you have to do what you need to do to stay motivated.
You need to have a daily method of operation and you need to get it done.
Often times people are afraid to think outside the box and do particular activities because if they did that in their job place, they might get fired in your job, place, you know what to do.
And often you’re not allowed to think outside the box.
Don’t think for yourself, Just do what’s in the manual kind of vibe.
So when you’re trained like that, when you’ve been working a job for so long for someone else who tells you exactly what to do, it’s kind of hard to go,
“I wonder if this would work?”
“I wonder if this is something that would, you know, help me in my business”
An entrepreneur goes, “let’s try it, let’s go and do it”.
Let’s see how it goes. If it doesn’t work out, we pivot, we learn something, and let’s give it a go.
But as an employee, you’re kind of like, I’m not allowed to do what I think might be a good idea, that’s not in the manual.
So you were doing it by the book, you copy this design and that’s what’s expected of you.
But then you become an entrepreneur because you want to be your own boss, you want a freedom lifestyle, you want to wake up when you wanna wake up, with no alarm clock, and you want to create each and every day exactly the way you want it to be, you know, you have to think differently to make this work, you have to motivate yourself, you can’t be at the end of the day, looking back on what you did do and what you didn’t do and go, I actually didn’t really get a lot of the income-producing activities done, I didn’t make any offers, I didn’t make any money…
Don’t be afraid of things not working out all the time, and don’t worry about making mistakes, you’re gonna learn from them.
So there you go. I hope that helps you out.
