More on being an Entrepreneur and starting up!

Why do so many people fail to make money online even though they do everything their coach or mentor has told them to do? Why do two people who are in the same business niche and have the same business and marketing tools available go on to have one fail while the other succeeds?

Why does someone who has been building their business for years suddenly get passed up by a 'newcomer' out of nowhere? Why are some people who seem very successful on the outside not satisfied or happy on the inside?

Are some people just ’lucky’ while others aren't? What does success mean?

These and more are all questions I've asked myself over and over again and these are probably questions you have also asked yourself at some point in time. Frankly, I have grown tired of seeing masses of budding entrepreneurs and people, in general, give up on their dreams due to the negative forces that seem to keep people down while a few continue to rise.


It All Begins With You

Whether you're a new entrepreneur or you’ve owned and operated a business for a while, you probably have an idea of what success looks like to you. Maybe it’s buried deep inside you and only peeks out on rare occasions when you allow yourself to dream, but ifs there, and it’s important. If you don’t know what success looks like - how will you know when you get there? How do you know what to plan for? How do you know if you're making progress or simply treading water?

You don't.

So, if your definition of success is buried deep inside you, sit down for a while and pull it out. What does it look like?

How will you know when you’re successful?

Now, be careful here. Success can be quickly defined as, “I’m making a million dollars a year,” and set aside. However, monetary goals are only a part of being successful and for some, they’re not part of the definition at alL What does your life look like when you're successful? Are you traveling around the country or sitting at home in your beautifully appointed home office working quietly? Do you live on the ocean, in the city, or perhaps nestled in the mountains? Do you work 40 hours a week or are you a fan of the 4-hour workweek, ala Tim Ferris?

What are you doing? Are you writing? Are you planning? Are you on the phone talking to people? Giving workshops? Are you creating? Building? What are you doing when you’re successful? How do you spend both your work time and your free time?

The thing is only you know the answer to these questions. Consider and ponder.
