Many people I spoke to have the belief that business will improve if there is a new single government, which is not in a coalition as we had over the past five years. Well, here is a wake up call: your success in building a sustainable business relies not upon any government, but upon you! Sitting and waiting for the government, or someone else for that matter, for help is an exercise in futility. Businesses have been built and grown under all forms of governments,from democracy to totalitarian. Entrepreneurs have shone under some very difficult economic conditions. If you want to succeed now, you have to ignite your passion, motivate yourself and get fired-up.
No-one is going to give it to you, you gotta take it
There is nothing for free in life. You have to work for what you want. Your success or failure depends almost entirely upon your own thoughts and actions. The decisions you make today will determine your future. I really enjoy reading Brian Tracy’s works. One thing he mentioned is that people can only become successful once they accept that they are personally responsible for their own lives. You are responsible for everything that happens to you.
Now is the time to take stock and decide whether you want to be a fired-up entrepreneur or just another victim of the environment. If you want to be a successful entrepreneur or business owner, how many books have you read on how to succeed in business? Do you use your time wisely learning the skills necessary for success, or do you spend time in unproductive conversations and worrying over things you have no control over?
Are your friends people who are working hard and are determined to succeed? Or are they losers complaining and continuously blaming others for all their problems?
Choose now. Half of success starts in your mind, the moment you decide to achieve greatness in your life. You can learn anything you need to learn to accomplish any goal you set for yourself. No one is smarter than you and no one is better than you. All business skills, sales skills and moneymaking skills are learnable. Everyone who is good in any area today was once poor in it. What the successful have done you can do as well. You just need to get up and start doing something towards your goal. So what are you waiting for?
