If you are watching this, you are probably disgusted, tired and sick of doing what you are doing. You want to make a big change. You want to start a business, then you realize you are stuck. “What kind of business should I build? What kind of business should I start?” All you know is that you don’t like where you are in life. You want to move to a better space. You want a business of your own. I want out of the “9 to 5” rut.
I hate to be the one to tell you this, but if you don’t know what you want to do, figuring that out could take one to five years in many cases and possibly as long as ten years. Believe me, I’m sure you didn’t want to hear that. Everybody wants easy, quick and fast answers. You’re frustrated and you want this to happen now.
You are here because you are not prepared. This challenge is not something new. Figuring this out is about the “inner game.” You have to ask yourself some important questions to move forward. People don’t want to delve into these hard questions. They want an easy “fix.”
People say things like, “Just give me a system so I can make some money and be free.” The problem with this type of thinking is that there are systems you can buy. There are processes that will help you succeed. The problem is that none of them are cheap. The more effective any system is, the more money it will cost you. What makes that hard for so many people is that if you are unhappy, you are most likely also broke.
The reason you have this problem is because you have not invested in yourself. As you get on the path of discovery, you find out a lot of interesting and helpful things that will help you along the way. When I got into the storage auction business, I both liked it and didn’t like it. But, I had a process. A process is something that will help you.
A good rule to follow is to give yourself enough time to truly try something out. You can’t quit too quickly. Promise yourself that you will try out something new for 30, 60 or 90 days before giving up on it, no matter what the hardships are or your first impression is. If you teach yourself to make a commitment for short periods of time, that will definitely help you as you start a business.
In the beginning, I didn’t really love the storage auction business. Then I got good at it and the money started rolling in. I started enjoying it.
YouTube was another business venture I didn’t like at first. It was intimidating and awkward. I dreaded making each and every video. Then I committed myself and developed a two-year plan. I came up with 200 video ideas and wrote them down. Next, I started knocking them out. I didn’t even have the right equipment in the beginning. You can see for yourself as you watch some of my earlier videos that I was using inferior equipment. I left those early videos up as evidence of my growth.
What’s killing so many people is that they are looking for something easy. That’s not how you want to approach this journey. You have to put forth the effort. If the regular amount of effort you’re putting in now is not getting you what you want, then you will have to put in more time and effort to get the results you desire.
The big question that everyone worries about and that keeps so many people from getting started is what kind of business to start. The first step to answering that critical questions is to try some different things. You’re going to have to try a lot of different ideas and give each one enough time and commitment to assess the viability of that option.
One challenge that presents itself to a lot of people is that they’re good at a lot of things. As good as that may sound, it does create another set of problems. When you are good at a lot of different things, then it can be hard to make a decision. It may be easier for people who are only good at one thing to make a decision about what to pursue.
Certain profile considerations must be used to decide on the right business opportunity. When people ask the question about which business they should start, it is not an easy question to answer without carefully looking at the inner game and answering key questions that don’t have one-word answers. New entrepreneurs must evaluate their skills sets and the monetary resources they have to invest. Marital status and other family considerations also come into play. Whether you are planning on having children will also impact your decision.
If you’re unproven and just getting started, then you aren’t really valuable to the world yet. That’s the reality of it. Of course, you mother and father will tell you how wonderful you are, but in terms of the marketplace, no one is buying until you can prove you have something valuable to sell.
Once you have acquired something worth selling, then it becomes much easier to answer the question about what business you should start. As long as you are operating on potential, you will remain frustrated. That’s where the hard work comes in. You have to make the commitment to do the work necessary to start a business if you want to be successful.
