Okay, you’ve made the semi leap of going into entrepreneurship part-time. However, the more that you slave away in your business, the more that you become frustrated because you’re not generating enough revenue that’s the equivalent of your steady income from your job. You’re doing all the right things supposedly, but for some reason you’re just not seeing the results you so badly desire. So clearly something needs to shift in order to get a different result.
Being an entrepreneur isn’t just about coming up with an idea for a business. It requires so much more. As well as working on your business, you also need to dedicate a significant amount of time working on your own personal development. So that you will be able to stand strong when the challenges of life faces you. You have to get out of your own way if you want to launch a successful business.
Areas of development
If you had to assess the areas of where you need to improve in your own personal development, on a scale of 1-10 (1 being your strength and 10 being your weakness), where would you rate a) being a visionary, b) using your imagination, c) making quick decisions, d) being focused and e) taking actions that yields positive results.
I give you an example of what I mean, suppose you are a visionary, always coming up with creative ideas and are excellent at problem solving. But are terrible at focusing on one thing at a time and struggle to set realistic goals, you more than likely to get mediocre results because you won’t put all your effort into what you are doing. Or maybe you’re the kind of person who is very focused and spends a lot of time planning and setting goals, but is scared to use your imagination to dream the impossible. Instead you play small and never tap into your true potential because you’re so scared of failing.
Truth be told, if you don’t take stock of your strengths and weaknesses and take the necessary steps to work on yourself, you will end up going around in circles, sabotaging yourself unconsciously.
Is that what you want?
So, what needs to happen to get a better result?
In closing, being an entrepreneur is not just about working non-stop on your business. You need to also spend a good amount of time working on your own personal development. When you don’t reach out to others because you’re worried about being rejected, you are in fact getting in your own way and will end up sabotaging yourselves because you rather take the road of least resistance. The same goes for being a seminar or book junkie. You need to stop looking for the next fix and start implementing what is right in front of you.
