Why it’s Okay to be Alone in your Journey towards Entrepreneurship
In Entrepreneurship you can’t Take Everyone with you.
Only You Can Make Your Dreams Come True
I had to remind myself today that I am the master of my fate and the captain of my sea.
Let me explain.
Today I was in deep thought and it turned into ranting in my head. I needed to get it out.
Your journey into entrepreneurship, your journey into your passion, journey into building something, trying something new, losing weight, changing jobs, starting a small business, starting a big company, whatever it is, is YOUR journey.
YOU CAN’T TAKE EVERYONE ALONG WITH YOU!!!
Everybody can’t come, okay? It’s your journey. It’s your personal journey.
When you’re doing something great, when you’re a creator, when you’re an imaginative person, when you are a dreamer, you always want to share the dream, right? At least I do. I want to share that dream, and I’ve realized that everybody doesn’t have your vision.
Everybody doesn’t have your drive and everybody doesn’t have your wants or desires, and that is okay. Everyone isn’t meant to walk this path with you. You don’t have to do it alone, but the specific people that you may want to bring on this journey with you may actually be holding you back.
Sometimes you need to cut those ties and just keep moving forward, Find those on the same path. You guys can work together and build something unique. To get to where I’m trying to go, to get to where you’re trying to go, you have to want it. You have to want it really bad. You have to work hard for it.
You need to be dedicated and focused and your work. You don’t need anything delaying it, or discouraging you, or killing your spirit along the way, because you can do this.
You will have long days, long nights, early mornings. This won’t be for forever, but most people can’t see past that. They can’t see past the two or three, or four months of that.
These are people who have worked for the same job for ten, fifteen, twenty years, but they can’t see pushing hard for a year or six months to get to the other side and start building multiple streams of income, and start building a small business or building wealth.
If you’re focused on something and it’s important to you, get it done. Think about the last project you finished. You focused on that project, you worked hard, and you finished it, and you were successful in the end. Now just put that same drive into your own life.
Have faith in yourself.
There are five reasons people you think should help you and support you actually don’t.
- They don’t believe in you.
- They don’t believe in the end result.
- They’re just plain selfish.
- They secretly want you to fail.
- They don’t care one way or the other.
You have to be okay with all five of those.
As a matter of fact, all five of those feelings towards you are none of your business. Don’t take it personally. It’s not about you and your abundance. It’s about them and their lack.
They’re probably healing from wounds that have nothing to do with you.
Their lack of drive, their lack of vision, their lack of imagination, their lack of personal goals, is not your business. This is not your concern ,and it’s not your responsibility to fix it.
Some people find their greatest inspiration from a perfect stranger. That perfect stranger is probably someone who is going through a very similar thing. Find other businesses, find other entrepreneurs, find other people that are needing help as well. Find people who feel alone in this, link up, and see how you can help each other.
The coach and consultation I provide are very similar to that. I have a girlfriend, who was a perfect stranger at first. We now talk business together.
Now I coach her, and it’s a fantastic relationship. She gets to bounce ideas off me, and I get to help her build her business. I help make it better, optimize, and streamline it. It is the perfect relationship. She has people in her life that are close to her, but we choose to talk to each other about business.
It doesn’t matter what road you take. It just matters that you get there. You will not arrive there worrying about people who aren’t worrying about you.
You don’t have to take everyone with you on your journey.
