Do you want to start a business? Are you currently trying to start a business?
If you are wanting to be an entrepreneur…fear will be whispering in your ear.
“I’m afraid of getting clients.”
“I’m afraid of getting started.”
The list of whispers is endless.
I hear this a lot from entrepreneurs that I work with.
They say things like:
“I’m not going to be prepared enough.”
“I don’t have all the answers.”
” I don’t know what to say.”
Instead of doing the hard work, most people just do busy work.
They work on their website. Or maybe they say, “I’m waiting on my business cards before I start.”. …sure you are.
It’s just excuses, all because of fear.
Being afraid of failure is like being afraid of school. Failure is the best teacher you could ever have.
As you fail, you learn. It’s ok to fail, just learn from it.
If you’re afraid to get business and get clients, fear is going to tell you everything it can to get you to not go after it. Then you’ll get stuck.
You need to RIGHT NOW, call fear out. CALL IT OUT NOW!!!
What are you afraid of?
Write it down.
Ask yourself, “Why am I afraid of this?”.
What can you do about it?
If it’s “I’m afraid I would be prepared.” well get prepared. Eliminate the excuse.
Failure can be a tool for those who are willing to use it.
This isn’t just about starting a business…it’s about life.
So stop putting off what you know you need to do. Make a plan. Do the research. Pick up the phone. Send the email. Make the pitch. Stay up late. Get up early. Work on the weekend. Make up your mind that you will take action. Do what it takes.
The worst thing you can do is to shut yourself down with failure that doesn’t even exists.
You CAN do this.
