I want to do something! But how or where do we start?
So if you want to do business or build your own startup, how exactly do you start? I feel as if many people are in the dark when it comes to this topic. I bet you have heard friends or family mentioning to you – “Let’s do a business”, “Let’s start something”, and most of the time, nothing happens.
Why is this? Is it because they are just blabbering on their wishes and dreams, hoping that some day a miracle will drop and everything comes to place? I believe a major reason for this is lack of education.
You see, proper education can teach you many things in a certain field, but the school system and our college/university NEVER actually teaches you the fundamentals to life. You will find that life skills are taught by your parents, peers, mentors..etc, never through a “school” system. And this is the problem.
This is the same for business, no one actually tells you how to do it. It is something you must learn by yourself, through trial and errors, grit, commitment, hard work, to name a few, and especially through SELF EDUCATION.
Most people believe to do business, one must have an extraordinary idea, or a big capital saved up to to start a company. This is not true. Not one bit.
But let me tell you something before I dive deeper, all this is pointless if you do not have a vision.
Vision is what will drive everything and anything that you do.
I love this quote from a book that I’ve read, and it goes something like this –
“Entrepreneurial success is fueled by creativity, imagination, bold moves into uncharted waters, and visionary zeal”.
This is very true. Without a vision and knowing for certain where your destination lies ahead, you will not have enough fuel to drive you.
Think about it.. if you really know where your end goal is, what’s stopping you? You’ll do whatever it takes no matter the obstacle to get to your destination.
So the first thing you’re going to need is vision. Meditate on it. Think deeply on it. Pray about it. Have crystal clear focus on what you want out of life.
Once you find it, you’ll never stop.
