Limitations You Must Overcome As You Build Your Business
Building your own business is an exciting and challenging pursuit, and it’s not for those faint of heart. As you realize that leaving the “security” of a 9 to 5 job means that your success and well-being depend entirely on you, it’s game time.
In the early days of business building, several fears and negative thoughts can pop up, exposing hidden limitations that threaten to derail your success and keep you from reaching your goals. If you are a passionate student of self-improvement, you likely know that your mindset and the thoughts that you think can significantly impact what happens in your personal and professional pursuits. It is vital to expose these limitations and erroneous beliefs and then work to change them to maximize your potential.
You deserve it!
You deserve to have the business...and the life…. of your dreams, but you can only grow to the extent that you change your beliefs and attitudes to align with your success goals. If you want to reach the stars, consider shrugging off some of these common beliefs and limitations as you carve out the life you’ve always wanted:
Limitation #1: I don’t have enough money
If you have issues or resentments about money, now is the time to get rid of them. One common belief that many failed business owners cite is that they didn’t believe that they “had enough money” to make their dreams happen. A wise man once said, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Your thoughts ultimately shape your reality, and you will bring prosperity or lack to you, depending on what you choose to focus on. Start today; think positive, uplifting thoughts, release toxic emotions and negativity around past experiences, and recreate your relationship with money to bring success to you.
Limitation #2: I don’t have enough time
Some tremendous stresses and pressures come with building a business. Balancing work and family is a delicate act; learning to become organized and plan your days well will be an essential piece to your success. Ask yourself these questions as you learn to use your time more wisely:
What are the most important and essential things I have to do today?
Is there something that can wait until I cross my most vital things off my list?
What are my most significant time wasters?
How am I balancing my time between work, family life, and recreation?
What needs to be changed for me to feel less pressure and stress?
As you carve out the answers to these questions, make the changes necessary to create new habits that will usher in a healthier, more balanced life.
Limitation #3: Business building will be easy
You’re kidding, right? Yes, there are days when it seems as if everything comes together, and there are other days when it seems your foundation is crumbling beneath your feet. The road to consistent business growth is filled with ups and downs, and you’ll need to develop the fortitude to keep a positive mental attitude when the going gets tough. Keep your head down, keep your vision and dream in the forefront of your mind, and blast through obstacles to reach your goal. You can do it!
Limitation #4: I have to do this all by myself
Newsflash--if you try to build a business, keep a family going, and take care of yourself by yourself, you will most certainly fail. The most successful entrepreneurs know the power of leveraging the time and talents of others to help achieve their goals. This is not manipulation; this is teaching others to believe in and create dreams right along with you. Whether you call upon family, hire talented employees, or outsource for some of the things you don’t have time to do, the power of a community will go to work for you to help you create your best life. Believe that this support is here and expect that you will receive just as you are giving.
Limitation #5: I don’t have to concern myself with little details right now.
Running a business is all about the details. From employee schedules to bookkeeping to inventory and beyond, it’s the little details that will make all the difference to your success. Remember, you don’t have to do it all by yourself, but you should be connected to people who are micromanaging these things for you. Strategically surround yourself with strong, capable people who are also success-minded, and you’ll see it all come together.
