As an ENTREPRENEUR, to draw meaning from this you need this first:
- Know which TRACK you’re currently on and whether it’s the RIGHT or wrong Track for you.
- Decide right away to find Your RIGHT TRACK and start doing it.
Now allow me to talk only of 2 TYPES OF ENTREPRENEURS:
- THOSE WHO START WITH AN IDEA,BUILD IT TO GET MONEY AND RESOURCES NEEDED
- THOSE WHO GET THE MONEY THEN FORMULATE AN IDEA,GET RESOURCES AND MAKE MORE MONEY
(Both become successful depending on the MINDSET)
NOW THE LOOKING BACK PART.
All entrepreneurs want one thing and that’s SUCCESS,which may differ in scale from one to the other. But for any not to end up LOOKING BACK the are first things to begin with :
- HAVE A PROFITABLE IDEA
This is your reason to start the journey. Research to FIND KNOWLEDGE on how to turn the idea into a living business. Also find those who failed with similar ideas and know the possible chances of failure so to have a back up plan in advance.
- Find people already living a SUCCESSFUL LIFE from implementing and similar idea and learn how they did it. You need to know how to run a business, Where to Get the Right Advice and The Legalities of the Business Type you want prior starting it.
- Identify the BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES four idea will be online with and Way’s to get them working for you. RESEARCH YOUR BUSINESS FIELD Do what is called a MARKET RESEARCH and use the findings of that as SIGN POSTS On the Long journey you’re to engage on.
- FORMULATE YOUR OWN STRATEGY (not copy),according to your unique needs and expectations.
- Have a CLEAR AND DETAILED VISION of your INTENDED END RESULTS,How success looks like and what it means to you. Begin with the End In Mind
REASONS TO LOOK BACK!
- POOR PLANING OR NO PLANING AT ALL
A Poor plan leads to low confidence levels to stand up for your own thing,and makes you do unprofessional things that will look like a waste of your time once you’ve been given the platform and fail. Not enough Knowledge about what you’re getting into leads to poor planing. FAILING TO PLAN IS planing TO FAIL
- UNCLEAR TARGETS AND randomly IDENTIFIED DEADLINES
Whence you begin any journey, you need to know how long you expect it to be,what has been the obstacles of those who’ve walked the journey and how you intend to pass then. You need to identity certain Points to reach at a Certain Time and Certain Things To Receive once get there. This will give you Targets to meet and New Targets to Identify as you achieve some. To know what to expect and when gives you time to plan in Advance.
- WEAK AND RANDOMLY IDENTIFIED STRATEGIES
As John Gresham wold write, “Strategy Is The Plan To Implemented The Actual Plan”, close quotes. This is your system\ Framework to achieve the plan and live the IDEAL LIFE of a successful personal according to your own image of it. Taken a soccer team coach for an example: The Purposes of all is to be Successful Coaches for their teams,Common Aimed is to WIN THE GAME,second result is PLAY A DRAW because success will come only with POINTS And a draw has a single point. However, Every coach has a GAME PLAN,a FORMATION to play the game plan,winning game plan and,a PLAN B that will come at a time where a win is obviously not possible from the coach’s game plan so the DRAW A GAME plan comes to play. All these include decisions on Starting Line Ups, Substitutions and substitute Times That’s want a strategy looks like,a CLEAR STRATEGY
- FEAR TO TAKE RISKS OR START SOMETHING NEW
To be able to take a risk,you must know the RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR BUSINESS and study the AFTERMATHS of it in both ways so to know you’re not just taking a risk but a CALCULATED RISK and you know how to Keep going after it regardless of the results. Sometimes, the path you followed might reach a DEAD END as some may say, but It’ll tell you that’s no dead end but an UNEXPLORED milestone Waiting for anyone to explode and STRETCH THE END,PAVE A NEW PATH AND SET A NEW STAND. Reason why New Business Approaches like Network Marketing came to existence is purely because someone reached what most saw as a DEAD END To MARKEING STRATEGIES and decided not to look back but to PAVE A NEW PATH,EXPLORE A NEW FIELD AND SET A newly STANDARD,,,Now look at How Many Have followed that Path today.
- NONE PROGRESSIVE ROLE MODELS OR PERSONAL CIRCLE
When you start,their people you identify as the peoples I what you want to do and use to equip yourself with knowledge, night stay in the same level so much that you reach their level. You need to identify new people to LOOK UP TO for there only way to LOOK UP at something or someone is by having that thing \person ahead of you and not with you or behind you. You can only LOOK STRAIGHT a the ones in the same position as you and only LOOK DOWN to the one Behind you.
Another Thing is, NOT KNOWING WHEN TO MEASURE PROGRESS AND KNOW HOW LONG YOU HAVE TO REACH AN IDENTIFIED TARGET
This leads to celebrating a little progress and wasting the time you’re to invest in a bigger progress, intimidated by the progress of those in a similar field as you are without knowing their PLANS,STRATEGIES AND TARGETS. Then the pressure to be like them leads to a loss of PURPOSE and end result if failure.
Hopefully this article brings more Light,and Opens the Mind.
