5 Things Every Young Entrepreneur Should Know
- Not everyone is going to be in your corner. Not everyone is going to want to see you succeed and this is a reality of life. For you to expect otherwise is like expecting to see the sun shining every day. That is not going to happen.
- You have to take positive approach. You must believe in yourself and have a passion for whatever business you want to venture into. More importantly you have to believe in your ability to succeed.
- The success of anything you undertake requires the support of others. Success cannot happen in a vacuum. Without people supporting your business or organization you will ultimately fail. If you are in a client based business you will have to develop the skills to attract clients. If you are in a customer based business you must possess the ability to attract customers. For you to grow a business and be successful you need the support of others.
- Never make haters your concern. Those you do not wish to see you succeed should never be your concern because they are not going to add to your growth. For example if you have people who support you and 25 against you, (and usually the margin is not that close) don’t waste time worrying about that 25 instead focus on the 50. Concentrate on how you can build a strong relationship with that 50 and how you grow that figure to 100. Use that 25 as motivation to make you to work harder to succeed. You need to possess the ability to take something negative and use it to your advantage.
- Be prepared to experience setbacks. To grow a successful business it will not be all smooth sailing. However never develop a negative mindset and believe that these setbacks are due to those who want to see you fail. If you let these negative ideas grow and feed into these negativity you will not be able to see the mistakes you are making and correct them and you will fail because you did not believe enough in yourself and your abilities. No one can stop a person who is determined to succeed.
In conclusion your success will depend in parts on your ability to pull people in and get their support. Success requires building bridges rather than putting up walls and nurturing positivity instead of feeding negative ideas and beliefs.
