Dreaming Of Entrepreneurship? Here’s Where to Start!
By: Brian Harrington
Becoming an entrepreneur is not an easy task. Are you dreaming of entrepreneurship? Here's where to start!
Most of those who launch their own business idea don't achieve success in the first attempt, hence the maximum of entrepreneurship verbalizes that there is no failure —but the projects that do not fit are to be visually perceived as a form of learning.
Not achieving success in the projects that we start can be used to know what the sector is like in which you try your luck —to make contacts, get to know the business world, and especially to learn how to face the new project ideas.
Having said all this, below are some key steps that every entrepreneurial and creative mind has to take before achieving success.
"Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in." —Bill Bradley
#1 Internalize Entrepreneurship in the Mind
A successful business is a reflection of the person who builds it. To achieve success, it is necessary to develop a mind prepared for it. It is not possible to build a successful idea by chance, but it is the result of dedication, sacrifice and hard work by a mind or a set of creative minds.
"Achieving entrepreneurial success must be a goal, not a dream." —Brian Harrington
The difference between a goal and a dream is that goals are achievable objectives while dreams are unrealizable fantasies.
Goals need action, take sides to achieve them. Thus, the first step to achieve success from entrepreneurship is to internalize the idea of success in the mind.
With our focus on goal setting, the first order of business is for each of us to set aside some serious time for evaluation, reflection, and accountability.
Once you decide what you want and can keep yourself accountable, this is the moment you've put yourself in a position of power to push toward achieving your goals and the kind of life you desire.
There is no entrepreneur who has achieved success without mastering the field or discipline where he wants to innovate. We see many cases of young entrepreneurs who create startups and launch their ideas that generate a lot of impact on the audience and break the market.
However, there is no case of the young entrepreneur, or mature entrepreneur, who has developed a successful idea without knowing what the market is like —or without mastering the discipline in which you want to undertake.
The bottom line here is that there's always new competition and innovation within existing competitors… all of the time. So, make sure you have the discpline in the work that it takes to keep your eye on what's going on, and how your customers needs are changing.
To stay ahead, you need to ensure and have the endurance to know everything that is going on in your market– and not after you've been overtaken.
#3 Be Certain That You Have The Best Project Out There
This point is also important because sometimes entrepreneurs believe they have come up with an idea that will change the world… which is a great and a well-needed passionate start, but there are a few things to be sure of first and foremost.
They put all their effort and sacrifice into it, without having consulted if, in other parts of the world, they are innovating in similar ideas or without knowing the market in depth.
They believe they have the answer to certain problems of society and offer more profitable solutions but do not feel comfortable developing that idea and that causes them discomfort and disappointment.
To avoid this, you have to analyze each discipline or each business sector and check if you are going to be comfortable developing an idea that can be successful.
Another of the key elements for the entrepreneurship project to achieve success is to have a project that's well-planned out. This includes many variables, such as costs, budget, a dream team, public acceptance, and the possibility of financing by financial institutions or institutions public assistance -to entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurship projects must work like most companies do, and in a company, everything must be properly planned.
Knowing at every moment in which phase the project is in, when it can begin to give results, when it can be made public, how to take advantage of social networks, take advantage of the use of additional communication, utilize publicity elements to disseminate it, etc will prepare you for the unpredictable journey to success.
