The Philosophy for Success …
Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t. So that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.
A firm statement, I know. But something I feel is needed. If you think about it, the ability to create success is the product of a unique combination of skills and mindset that you can tap into again and again and again to achieve your wildest dreams. Those ones you thought were never possible. It’s important to remember that because with each journey of success your life evolves. Not only as a person, but as a professional in the business world.
It’s been said that those who are truly successful never restrict themselves to one venture, but rather simultaneously manage multiple streams of such.
So, whether you are looking to step into the entrepreneurial world for the first time or you are already underway, here are some tips I learned along my own personal adventure …
- Steady your nerves.
- Work for something larger than yourself.
- Keep your “bigger picture” in mind or even on a vision board, it will keep your passion(s) a priority.
- Be mindful in your personal and professional life.
- Define success but let it be adaptable … There are many different paths.
- Look for ways to leave the world better than you found it.
- Find the opportunity within the obstacle … never stop learning.
- Maintain a sense of humility, it can go a long way.
- Recognize that your time is limited so think BIG. But in the same breath, you do not have to accomplish all in one day. That’s just cause for burnout (and mistakes).
- Celebrate your achievements and your failures as they can be used as motivation.
To end today’s discussion on a light note, I’d like to leave you with some motivating words from Steve Jobs as his personal life philosophy of pursuing one’s own dreams, regardless of the opinion of others, played a key role in why he was able to imagine, create and execute on such grand ideas!
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma–which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
