Success Begins When You Clarify Goals and Purpose
The Successful Entrepreneur – Burning Desire and Clarity of Goals and Purpose Are Vital
We all have things we want in life, sometimes things we want really really badly. Many people often dream of working for themselves and ditching their unhappy work lives. It is a sad fact that so few of us are living the lives we want. I do not believe that it is our destiny to trudge through life and then die. A successful entrepreneur has taken that leap from thought to action, something most of us never do because of fear and doubt. We are surrounded by mediocrity at every turn and this leads to us to think that this is just what life is about. Now, I am not saying the only way to be happy is to be a successful entrepreneur. I am sure there are many people who are happy in jobs and careers that have a structured schedule and require them to report to someone. But I know for a fact that many people are simply not and they lament the lives they have settled into(by their own choice whether or not they realize that).
I believe anyone can be a successful entrepreneur if they truly want it bad enough. So badly that they cannot imagine living any other way. This desire has to be red hot and detailed. Just saying you want to work for yourself is not enough. That is obvious. You need to specifically outline the why’s and keep them in your mind at all times. Write them down and post them where you can see them to remind you that all your effort, both physical and mental is worth it completely. I was miserable working the corporate world because I hated commuting. I consider myself to be a calm patient person but traffic was some sort of Achilles heel for me. I just could not deal with it like a normal person might. Jersey might be small but there is a lot of people on the road. I also hated being on someone else’s schedule and having to sit somewhere for 8 or 9 hours even if I had nothing to do. I got real good at looking busy. But the thing I hated most was vacation time. I have a desire to travel that is so strong and it is probably my number one factor for delving into self-employment with a very lucrative opportunity. The desire for the life I want is so unbelievably strong that once I started out on my own, I NEVER looked back. Those desires drove me every day to do what I needed to do because I knew the end result was going to be living an extraordinary life that most people do not think is possible for them.
So we know that a successful entrepreneur has an unshakeable desire for certain things in life and has made the decision to have them. The next step is having clear goals and action steps to get there. It requires a certain amount of discipline but if you have those burning desires in the forefront of your mind at all times, it is actually not that hard to keep motivated and do what you need to do. You need to have some sort of plan and what you need to do to get there. This does not mean you have to have every minute detail planned out but you should have daily, weekly, and/or monthly goals for yourself. This keeps you on track and will assure you are doing what you need to do. When I get up in the morning, I have a general idea of what I am doing that day. I may or may not have specific plans, sometimes I just go with my intuition and it seems to work well for me. If I have questions, I get in touch with my mentors and ask them for assistance and get right back to what I was doing. Remember to be patient and persistent as it can take some time to build up regular clients or prospects. Make sure you are doing something EVERYDAY and you will see that your efforts are paying off. This will serve for even more motivation and will spur you to step up your efforts even more, getting yourself closer and closer to realizing your dreams.
A successful entrepreneur knows what they want and why. These desires are so strong that nothing will keep them from reaching the goal. I think it is possible for anyone if they cultivate certain habits and traits. Remember that you can be whatever type of person you want to be and you can change any habits, beliefs, and personality traits that may be holding you back from living the life you truly want.
