Beliefs that are killing your success…
1. “I don’t have enough time”
You are really busy aren’t you?
We all are!
Yet people like Sabeer Bhatia (founder Hotmail), Noah Kagan (founder AppSumo) and many others built startups while holding full time jobs.
Look closely – can’t you find time anywhere?
What activities in your life you can eliminate, outsource, or delegate?
Get rid of TV, movies, social networks, social outings, etc.
What’s more important – your dream or watching reruns of ‘Friends’?
2. “I need to wait for the perfect moment”
Every 3 out of 10 people I meet want to become an entrepreneur…someday.
Most of the time, someday never comes!
Because there is no perfect moment. You will always face challenges.
But why are you waiting for the perfect moment?
Often, it’s because of the next belief…
3. “I only have one chance”
Ever heard of a company called Traf-O-Data?
I guess not. After all, it was a failure.
But everyone has heard of Microsoft!
Here’s the surprise: Traf-O-Data was actually the first company founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen!
Numerous people have failed several times before finally attaining success.
You have multiple chances to get it right.
Never give up, even if you are like 99 years old!
4. “I don’t have enough money”
Of course you don’t! Who does?
Is the business idea you have in mind impossible without a large investment?
Just ask yourself “What business can I start with the limited money that I do have?”
An easy way to make revenues with little investment is to offer services like consulting, website maintenance or maybe even ghost-write!
If you have a ‘dream business‘ in mind, you can start that after you have made enough money with your first venture.
Elon Musk, Paypal founder, now has a company that develops spacecraft – SpaceX. He didn’t have the money to build SpaceX 25 years ago.
That didn’t stop him!
