|Can I Be Successful In My Own Home Business?|
Copyright © 2004, Sherry Starnes
Have you ever wondered why some people are successful in their own Home Business and others are not? One of the key answers to this question is perseverance.
According to Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, perseverance is to "persist in a state, enterprise, or understanding in spite of counter influences, opposition, or discouragement". That is how people succeed.
DO YOU HAVE PERSEVERANCE?
Many get frustrated when results are not immediate. Being successful in your Home Business will take time, effort, and determination. Millionaires did not become millionaires overnight and you will not either. The level of success that you will achieve greatly depends on the time, effort, and perseverance you are willing to put into your new home business.
SETTING YOUR PRIORITIES
Getting a handle on your priorities is important when deciding whether or not you want to start your own home business. What is important to you? Do you want more time with your family or do you prefer to be in an atmosphere where you can socialize with people you work with?
Do you want to be your own boss or do you lack the self-motivation to actually work without someone telling you what to do and when to do it? In order to be successful in your own home business you have to possess the ability to push yourself ahead. Be persistent. Be determined. Be successful.
When reviewing your priorities think about what you want out of life. Consider what is more important to you. Think about long-term goals and dreams and and what you are willing to do to obtain those goals and dreams. Are you willing to give up a few things now for financial freedom in the future or are you content living from pay check-to-pay check with minimum responsibility?
STAY FOCUSED ON YOUR DREAMS
Staying focused on what you want to achieve out of life can be difficult. Indecision may be stressful. Decide what you want to do and stick to it. Focus on the outcome of being your own boss. Being your own boss can be very rewarding. You will not have to report to anyone, never miss your child's ball games, plays, or any other activity, nor will you have to work when you or a family member are sick. You are the boss so you work when you want to and where you want to. Does that sound like what you want to do? If it does, then a home business may be right for you.
Not you will you be able to achieve financial freedom but you will have the power to achieve many things you were unable to do when you were stuck working for your boss and making him money. Think about your boss for a moment. Does he drive a better car, live in a bigger house, and take nicer vacations than you? Wouldn't it be nice if it were the other way around? You can make it happen by taking that first step now and becoming a Home Business Entrepreneur.
Perseverance, perseverance, and more perseverance. Don't give up.
Determine your priorities. If necessary, sit down and make a list of your priorities. Do your priorities consist of being with your family, not commuting to work, working when you want to, gardening, fishing, attending your child's activities, being your own boss, financial freedom, or independence?
Stay focused on your home based business, even if you do not get rich quick it will eventually come. Keep a positive attitude and have confidence in yourself to be successful.
