Around this time of year you might be pondering how you would like your
life to go in 2011. Some of you may be thinking about changing your life work.
Maybe you are tired of working for someone else who has completely different
values and methods from yours.
If you have been dreaming of starting your own business, there is no better
time than right now to start your research. Many people get the entrepreneurial
“bug” and then never do anything with it. One reason for this is that
a lot of folks simply don’t know where to even begin. There are so many choices
when it comes to different types of businesses. How will you know if you should
invest in a franchise, or open a boutique, or plan events, or run a concierge
In this article, I’ll address 5 steps to start the vital process of self
discovery that MUST happen before you choose which kind of business to start.
1. It all starts with your personal mission statement. Think about it, pray
about it, write about it – what motivates you? What captivates your attention
and causes you to sit up and take notice? What gifts and talents do you think
you have and why did God give these talents to you? Once you know your life
purpose – you will have a foundation of information that will help you
determine which business to choose.
2. Now that you know why you are here on this planet and what gifts you
really want to share with others, take your personality into consideration. I
prefer using Myers Briggs Type Indicator, but there are some free self-tests on
the internet that you can use. Once you
know your personality type you’ll have a better understanding of …
Have you ‘failed’ at reaching the goals you had set for your business
income or growth?. Those who read me know that I use this word only rarely, not
because I am in denial, but rather because I have the belief that every
experience provides value and helps up grow (every defeat is an opportunity to
acquire new skills and knowledge, often indispensable for our growth, and thus
is a milestone to personal success, rather than a failure). But this isn’t what
this article is about. Rather, I will focus on the relevance of past outcomes
for predicting future outcomes, in your online business or in realizing other
Instant online business success is uncommon. Overnight wealth from a
‘push-a-button’ business system is a sham. Spontaneous entrepreneurship is an
unfair challenge. Growing a lucrative business online requires time, action…
and personal growth! But then you hear about those who generated tens of
thousands in their first month, replaced their income in their first three months,
or produced seven-figure incomes in their first 12 months? And you ask
yourself: Why Can’t I do that?
If this question keeps emerging in your mind, every day, you shouldn’t!
Success is personal, and measuring your results against the success of others
will not be empowering. Results in online business are created through the
business owner’s skills, mindset, dedication, leadership, faith, actions,
entrepreneurship, resources, passion, tenacity, consistency, direction, and
personal development, ALL of which will IRREFUTABLY contrast between
individuals. The most productive approach, is appraise those things against
YOURSELF and YOUR ambitions.
If you didn’t realize your objectives in online business or in other areas,
it doesn’t mean that your future outcomes will be equivalent. HOWEVER, you need
to evaluate whether you have the ability and resources to bring the contrasting
