When you start a business, you are suddenly reliant on no one but yourself. This may be the first time in your life that your are faced with this challenge. It is widely said that there is no better personal development tool than starting your own business. Owning your own business will bring up all of your issues and crap. It will different for each of us—money issues, self-worth issues, not feeling like you are good enough, fear of criticism, etc. It may feel like you are going through a disaster; however, there is often a door opening for you to the place you really need to be.
The road to entrepreneur success is a continual journey. Some people mistakenly think that success is a destination. No, that journey just keeps changing and you must step out in faith…one step at a time. One day you will turn around and find that you are literally in a completely different place. Your awareness shifts and you see other things differently.
Many entrepreneur’s become terrified when things don’t go as they expected because we grow up thinking that everything is done step by step in a straight line. But entrepreneur success is never a straight line. It is bumping around, flipping over and loop-de-loops and you just have to realize that this is the norm. So remember that entrepreneur success will come in a series of zig zags–never a straight line. Following this crooked road is an exciting adventure that I will never regret taking.
