To Do or Not to Do, Things that Keep Entrepreneurs from Reaching their Goals
Published on: 26.06.2018
From imagination to the business plan. This is a difficult crossing because the harder you try to achieve your dreams the more fears, distractions, excuses, and skeptical people gather around you. All these things can be the reason why it happens to all of us to label you goals as ‘Fragile’. No matter what, don’t let yourself down and try instead to stop doing the things that keep you from making progress.
Don’t hurry, be patient!
The lack of patience can affect you in different ways. Let’s say that you have a great idea and you know that many other people may think about the same thing at the same time. You need a strong ground and sometimes it’s good to be the second. It takes time to take the people, the product, and the market together.
The second scenario is about losing patience too soon and starting to quit. Show patience to yourself and toward all the other factors related to the success of your idea.
Take small steps
It happens in many cases to read and hear about overnight success stories companies that came out of the blue. In most of this cases only the last part of the story is told and only the people involved know how many years and efforts it took them to turn into an overnight success story. It is crucial to take small steps in order to handle every possible failure or big success along the path.
Excuses and self-doubt
These two can make a perfect combination of things that stop you from being successful, yet the list of excuses includes a lot more:
I’m too young or I don’t have the age for this
I don’t have enough money
Who needs this?
This is too complicated
This is too had and I’m not that smart
It takes a lot of time, time that I could spend procrastinating
What if I’m doing this the wrong way?
People say it won’t work. Maybe they’re right.
And a lot more.
Distractions and emotional well being
It’s crucial to find the balance between hard work and things that can help you relax, but not distract you from your goals. Don’t neglect your well-being. Take a break if it’s necessary, but don’t lose track of your progress.
Be prepared for the entrepreneurial lifestyle
Think about your favorite entrepreneur and now think how much does that model fits within the context of your community or country. This will help you keep your feet on the ground and understand what will really work in your case. Elon Musk is having fun showing that his Tesla cargo hauler has a Mad Max autopilot road. He’s the entrepreneur that other entrepreneurs admire, but just think how stressed he can get.
Success depends on numerous things, but experience has shown that what we get depends on how much we give of ourselves.
When it comes to social entrepreneurship collaboration with other people is crucial. it is also important to surround yourself with like-minded people that care about the same values and goals. This is the reason why we encourage you to join the Entrepreneurship Campus community of young entrepreneurs and talented people from all over the world.
