Are You Willing To Change To Be A Successful Entrepreneur?
How long are you willing to “give it your all” to become a successful entrepreneur? Many people ask me how did I know that I was in the “right” business and how long did it take me to be successful? Thinking back, it’s been over 15 years now, I didn’t feel I had a choice. After working so long in a corporate job, I had already lost 13 years of my life and 8 precious years of my son’s life, so when I decided to “go for it” with my home based network marketing business…I gave it everything I had! You see, for me, it wasn’t really about the business, it was my son’s life!! It’s hard to explain today, however, back then, I felt like I couldn’t miss one more day of his life, so I had to make this work at all costs! It felt like a life or death situation, even though it wasn’t, that’s what my mind “tricked” me to believe, and guess what…it worked!
The Road Less Traveled – Successful Entrepreneur
Success is a journey, not a destination and once we choose to be an entrepreneur, we are on the road less traveled. It’s important to keep our eyes on our goals, keep moving forward, and never look back. So how long should we travel this road? Until! Yes, until we feel successful. Keep on following our Road to Success (click for posts) and the big secret, which is to always have mentors and coaches in our life who have been down the road we are now traveling. For over 15 years, I have walked down this road to success with a mentor or coach everyday of my journey. This one tip will save you years of pain. The road will still be uncomfortable because we all must grow and build our muscles, however, it is much less painful when we have an experienced mentor by our side.
How Do We Transform?
Because most of us were brought up to be employees, there is a metamorphosis which must take place for us to become successful entrepreneurs. It’s like the transformation a caterpillar must go through to become a butterfly. A caterpillar crawls on the ground or on leaves and has a limited view of the world, then one day, the caterpillar feels like he/she should become more, so the caterpillar spins a cocoon and is in the “dark” contemplating becoming a butterfly. The caterpillar must leave all thoughts of his past life as a caterpillar behind, and dream only of BEcoming a butterfly. The caterpillar develops wings and then struggles to break open the dark cocoon. After building his/her strength, the butterfly’s new wings start to poke the cocoon and a beam of light shines into the dark cocoon. The butterfly keeps strengthening his/her wings by trying again and again, and then the cocoon breaks open and the butterfly is free. The new butterfly starts flapping his/her wings and realizes he/she is flying!
