Starting out on a new business venture is exciting. You have a great idea, you are passionate about it, you eat, sleep, and breathe your new business, and the fire of passion is burning bright. Before you get to the place where the rubber actually meets the road however, something strange happens. The fire dwindles. Maybe you get tired. Maybe you are overwhelmed, or it feels like it is never really going to happen. Whatever the case, you start to lose your business passion.
Resistance Will Come: Fight Through
There will come a point where it will not be easy. You will grow bored with the waiting for things others must do. You will feel the obstacles are too much. You will begin to wonder if you really can do this. Push through. This is normal and natural. Don’t be taken by surprise. Resolve from the beginning to be ready for this storm.
Find Your “Why”
Why are you starting a business? Maybe you are passionate about how your product or service can help others. Maybe you are trying to provide yourself with a better family and work balance. Putting your kids through college could be your why. Building your dream home could be your why. Whatever it is, keep it in front of you at all times. Write it down and stick it in a thousand different places if you have to so you never lose sight of it.
This sounds a overly simplified. Of course you need to stay motivated, but how do you do that? There is a trick to it. Set goals for yourself that are slightly out of reach. Big goals, the ones that will take extra time and work, are the ones that will keep you climbing toward them. When you meet one, set another, bigger, harder goal.
