Watching a Business Develop Around You Is a Gift

Are you wasting time getting your business off the ground? The time we spending on building a business is never wasted. Entrepreneurs are consistent in their business efforts.

So why does it take some of us longer to see the results? Is there something we’ve missed? No. It is not a race, you will see others there before you and that’s okay. Be happy for them, ask them how they did it. They are happy to share and you maybe surprised at what they tell you.

Everyone can start with the same opportunity, the way you approach it is different. Some of us have a wider learn curve then others. Training is your part of the equation. You have to take what you have learned and act on it. Learning is not a waste of time unless, you think it is. If you feel that it is,your letting your emotions over ride your thinking process. You have to stop giving your emotions power over your decisions. If you are having a negative emotional reaction, it is because your not getting what you want without doing the work that it takes to get there. If you are busy worrying about someone else you will never see what you have in front of you.

People that feel like they are wasting their time are busy complaining. They are not doing what they need to do to get the results they want. They are still hoping that someone will come in and do it for them. Building a business is work. When you feel discouraged, you are not feeling the rewards for your efforts. What are you thinking, you can’t complain and have a positive out look at the same time. Whining is a negative act fuel by emotions. If your personal business development is lacking momentum you are the only one who can change it.

Adding a new training task to your list that will benefit you and make it easier. You can start building up your tool box with positive acts. Volunteer or go out and do an act of random kindness if you want to feel good about something. Only you can move forward, I can’t push you or hold your hand to success. You are the secret to the success of your business or your career. Fitting in to the role as a success person developes as you act on the training and the informed decisions you make. Exercising positive thinking because if you are only putting your toe in to test the water, you may never get in. What I learn today I can use to help someone do what I do. It is part of my business model.

Be too busy to dwell on negativity. Everyone is different so their challenges are different, Waiting for your light bulb moment will keep you in limbo. Everyone that sticks to the training long enough is going to see results. When your moment happens you will be ready because you invested on it. People, you have to carry out the training or it will not work. Entrepreneurs do not get paid for time. They get paid for results. Entrepreneurs really are too busy to worry about your negativity, they focus on whats important.

Watching a business develop around you is a gift. You will see it if you stay positive through the experience, you are the secret to your success so don’t give up. When my business changed, it was when I realised that I am the business. I have to take this to the next level and treat this like a business not a hobby. I am responsible for the decision I made. Most entrepreneurs can tell you when things stared turning around for them. Now when an opportunity comes they are ready. The reason they can do this is because they are positive thinkers that are successful because the took advantage of the opportunity in front of them. They look at it with an open mind and then zoom in on the facts taking emotion out of the decision-making.

Training your mind to take action is the way an entrepreneur’s mind works. You can teach your mind to leave emotion out of your decision-making. You start by training it to take action on facts, so it doesn’t react to emotion. You want it, doesn’t mean you need it. Take some time, up to a day if you need it to make decisions. Give your brain time to wrap around it. Listen to your gut as the facts unfold and you will make the right decision. A business mind will zoom in and out putting their focus on what is the best decision for the business and the people the business supports. Leave the emotions at the door and look at all the ways you can make a positive impact versus a negative one. Celebrate small milestones as much as the big ones, because they keep your momentum growing. Be positive take one day at a time and keep the future where you can see it.

Who Are You Selling?

You have partnered with a company that is selling products and you are ready to move forward. The doubts set in and you ask yourself is this the products and is this the company that going to change my life? If you think it is just about these things you may not see what you have in front of you.

The opportunity is more than an opportunity to start business it is a way to welcome change into your life. This is your business and yes the product is important, but you are what matters. Be clear that in a marketing business you have to invest money to make money. This business model is no different, it works and it has proven it’s self over the years. You are just doing is on the inter-net. This like any business is not for those who want to get rich quick. It takes time, money and patience to build a business.

The income is defiantly there for the taking for the people willing to work for it. Business owners know the reason they started their business. Do you know your reason? Is it to support yourself, your family or to get extra money for college? These are great reasons for starting a business. Get in touch with why you want to do this in the first place? If you doubt why you are here, maybe you should get out. You must own your place in your business. You are there to take charge of your life and your finances.

Who are you selling? Get the right mind-set by getting involved. You made a choice to do this. Working at it building your business is not an option. We all have growing pains when we got started. Take part in the training, improve on the skills that you need to run your business. This is what you have to do. No one is going to hand you anything.

An entrepreneur is the person who believes in their business. They are building something greater than themselves. They have a clear vision of where they want to go and what it is going to take to get there. In the beginning it is you, your money, but mostly your time. As things progress you will recruit people to do what you don’t have time for or don’t want to do yourself. Every business adventure no matter how small is going to have challenges. Meet them head on. We all have fears it is those who move forward with fear who conquer it.

Most people have to see themselves in a role before they are willing to do it every day. This is your business and your responsibility to the choice you made when you partnered with the company. People are counting on you to do your part. Just because they presented you the opportunity, doesn’t mean they owe you. Marketing your business or some ones products is the business you are in and it is your responsibility to do just that. Find the training and dominate quickly. Now put it in action.

Starting a business is a choice. You are not selling anything. Take the time to build business relationships. Be kind to everyone and treat them with respect. In business we are all connected to someone who knows someone else. Running your business with integrity and it will show.

What Does Attraction Have to Do With It?

Entrepreneurs are open to and have an attraction to opportunities. They build businesses, relationships and teach others to do the same. Opening the door for others to do the same.

Most entrepreneurs are willing to take you under their wing and show you how they got where they are in their business. Self-confidence is earned by every entrepreneur and they wear it as a badge. Confidence is intoxicating to everyone around you and the attraction is undeniable. You are the authority on your business and what it took you to get there.

Self- confidence is a gift that you earn by small accomplishments that build ability. Responsibility is to take care of the opportunity that is in front of you. You are developing the mind-set of a confident person and you don’t have time for lazy behavior in your life. You have to have done the work, if you don’t do what you have to get done on your list, it becomes a blow to your self-esteem and your business.

Start your day with an affirmation, prayer or conversation with yourself. Get ready to carry out your list. As you go through the day, cross off each task as you do this your self-confidence has a small victory dance. At the end of each day you make a new list. There is power in writing it down, reading before you go to bed and crossing off each thing on your list as you finish it the next day. When you surrender to the process you will find it is not as hard as you think. I say surrender, because some people will fight with the Idea that this will work at all, no change comes over night. This is a journey.

Entrepreneurs do what it takes even when they may feel uncomfortable at first because they know that you can say that it works, but try it out for themselves, they are confident in the process. They to are on a path to improve their lives. They are not judgmental. Every positive action they take to develop as a person is putting a new tool in the tool box to success.

Every task you carry out will make the next one easier. The attraction for more skills is building because the skills are building the knowledge that you need as a business owner. With your self-confidence growing and your esteem level rising you will find that other do take notice around you. Small changes will all so bring changes in the way you inter-act with others.

Attraction is built on respect, without respect you will not have self-esteem and without self-esteem you are not attractive to yourself. You have to feel a sense of accomplishment to gain self-esteem. Attracting people to you because you go after what you want and are willing to put the work in that it takes to succeed at your business.

Confidence is the reward. Please do not mistake confidence with arrogance. Arrogance is not attractive even though it is very powerful. An arrogant person is attractive to more arrogant people. They have little time for anyone but themselves. Conceited people keep the focus on themselves leaving very little room for anyone else. What does attraction has to do with it? Everything, as an entrepreneur you will attract the people who are looking for the way to build their business. They find value in you as a person because you are doing what you say you are going to do.Now is the time to step in to the role as the teacher, not the student. Sharing our knowledge is natural when you have done your homework and are a living example for them to follow.

Now, arm yourself with the tools to mold yourself into the person that you admire. Walk the path celebrating the small victories and get ready for the great celebration at the end. We don’t sell ourselves short. We are entrepreneurs ready for the next step because we have confidence that we can and it shows is every part of our lives.

What is an Entrepreneur Made of?

There are many people who come to mind when we hear the word entrepreneur. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are examples of great entrepreneur because they changed their lives by helping other. Our lives will never go back to what they were before computers because of these men and the choices they made.

Before the McDonald’s came along we ate at home or at a local restaurant that were own and operated buy a person or a family. The McDonald brothers who owned restaurants that severed the same quality product, a simple and effective operation. They ran their restaurant business on a few items concentrating on cleanliness, quality and uniformity.They did everything the same at more than one location. Ray Kroc seen this business model as a product. He knew that he could take this restaurant and copy it and open restaurants like this all over the world. His vision was to create his business by giving other entrepreneurs the opportunity to own a profitable business. You would be in business for yourself but not by yourself. Investing your money in a proven business model through duplication everyone benefits. Ray Kroc caused a disruption in the restaurant industry and changed may lives by supplying what people needed to make a dream of owning a business a reality. Each location any where in the world would have a business owner spending their own money invested in the success of the business and the brand McDonalds.

This is an example that shows us how an entrepreneur thinks. These brothers knew if they wanted to succeed they had to come up with a simple model that could be copied with same quality of the product and Ray Kroc could see these restaurants were the product that he could see all over the world. He knew that he could not do it alone so he helped others with a dream to own their own business. Helped them get started and he supplied an opportunity based on a proven product and those who took advantage of the opportunity are McDonalds’ owners. Franchising the business he made it possible for everyone to profit. He took ordinary people and gave them the opportunity to own a successful business.
