Do You Believe In What You’re Doing?
If You Believe In What You Are Doing, Then Let Nothing Hold You Up In Your Work. – Dale Carnegie
Being an entrepreneur has its share of ups and downs, but when your heart is one hundred percent into what you’re doing everyday should be filled with excitement and satisfaction right? No one becomes an entrepreneur because they think it’s going to be easy. You become an entrepreneur because you believe in what you’re doing. If you’re constantly stressed out by your work, don’t be too quick to blame it on entrepreneurship. You may need to rethink the work you’re doing.
In business your day is filled with a variety of things you have to take action on. Too often we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the day and react without taking the time to think about what we’re doing or why. The result is usually a collection of disappointing ventures that we never really had any belief in from the start. What you believe deep inside is what will manifest in your actions. How you think about something is what makes the difference in how you approach it. How you approach something determines its success.
“If you change the belief first, changing the action is easier.” ~ Peter McWilliams
The definition is insanity is to repeat an action over and over again expecting different results. Do you continue to take on the same projects, clients or customers over and over because you’re insane? Or are you working in disbelief? As a business owner, you need to focus on projects that are in line with your goals and beliefs. Every time you approach something in disbelief your actions will show it. You’re not as focused or enthusiastic as you are when you’re working on project you really believe in.
Don’t count success by the number of projects you have in the fire or the financial gain from taking on everything that comes your way. The reward of being a business owner is having the freedom to choose what you do. To count every business endeavor you take on as a success, first ask yourself one question, “Do I believe in this”?
