Stop! Making Excuses for Not Starting Your Own Online Business
So, what’s stopping you from starting your own online business and living your dream lifestyle?
Is it that you don’t have the money to get started?
You just can’t seem to find the time?
Or you think that you don’t have the right skills?
At Smart Laptop Lifestyle I have spoken to all kinds of people that are at different stages in their lives.
However one thing that they all share is that they all desire to set up their own online business and take control back into their lives.
But why is it that some people succeed and others struggle.
The simple answer is that for someone to become successful you have to want it enough and make sacrifices that will enable you to change your life and finally live the lifestyle that you do desperately long for.
So stop moaning that you wish that you could get some form of a lucky break and that you are unable to start an online business because you “don’t have enough time” whilst at the same time you are socialising with your friends many times throughout the week.
If you are not willing to make sacrifices in different areas of your life, then I am sorry to tell you that you just don’t want it enough and maybe you should just accept that your dreams are not going to become your reality.
However, if you truly believe that starting your own online business is your calling in life, then I would suggest that you stop make these excuses and start taking action.
Stop Thinking of it as Spending Money and Instead Start Thinking of it as Investing in You.
Right, let’s get to the chase. You will never have the money that you want to start your own business. Seriously not unless you come into a large amount of money say from an inheritance or you win the lottery and even then you may think that you are going to need more.
This is why you have to start small and work with what you have now. Did you know that many people start businesses with next to no money all the time, and go on to become successful?
They may not start their business with a large lump sum to begin with but they do invest small amounts of their spare income into their business.
What I often see is people complaining that they can’t start their dream business because they have no money to get started, but yet these same people will gladly spend £3.00 plus on coffee every morning and spend their money in the wine bars every weekend.
The reality is that these people do have the money to get started in a business but they are prioritising their spending on other things.
You may be able to relate to these people, however, there are a lot more valuable things to spend your money on if you are really serious and truly passionate about starting your own online business.
You could instead invest your money and time in things such as:
- Building your own website
- Marketing your business
You will soon start to see your rewards.
If You Don’t Have Any Spare Money
If you don’t have any spare money at all, you can still do something in your spare time to start building your online business.
I was once told that if you don’t have to money to get started online then you will just have to put in some sweat equity, meaning that you will have to work harder, because it is still very possible to get started online and it is definitely worth it.
Stop Wasting Time
There are 24 hours in a day, which is common knowledge, but did you know that the average person will spend 1.5 hours a day binge-watching Netflix?
So if you are spending 1.5 hours each day binge-watching your favourite TV shows on say Netflix this will add up to 10.5 hours each and every week, which is more that the average working day.
You could get a lot done in a single working day, so just imagine all of the important things that you could be doing with this time.
People complain that they don’t have the time to start their business and yet most people are unwilling to give up this valuable time that they spend in front of the TV.
I am not saying that you should stop having fun, because this would slowly drive anyone insane.
It is just the case of finding your balance and treating your down-time as a reward, rather than making it a routine.
You may even find that when you do put your feet up to watch your favourites on TV even more enjoyable because you will most definitely deserve it.
If You Don’t Know It, You Can Learn It
Remember that only you have the power to shape your own learning, so if you feel that you don’t have the skills or the knowledge to do something, then it is up to you to use your initiative and find out how.
Today we are so fortunate to live in an age where we have all the information readily available to use at a click of a button.
- YouTube Tutorials
- Online Courses
These are just some of the educational tools you have available to you on the World-Wide-Web.
It is also much easier to reach out to any of the industry experts and other business owners with the use of networking platforms such as LinkedIn.
Their contact information is available on platforms such as LinkedIn and it is just a case of you looking for them.
Right, if this sounds like it is going to be too much of an effort and you would rather just chill out on your sofa, then you should stop moaning that you don’t have the skills or the knowledge.
It’s Not The Right Time
Well this excuse is so over used and the common answer is will there ever be a right time? If you keep putting it off, the so called “right time” may never come.
It could be fear of getting started or just plain old procrastination, if you don’t just do it and get stuck in, you will be in the forever circle of excuses.
It is so much easier to tell yourself “I will start it tomorrow”, and then get caught up and distracting yourself with less important tasks.
When starting a new business may at first seem like a huge impossible task right now. However, if you take baby steps and complete each smaller goals at a time, you will start to those small goals completed and soon you will start to see how manageable it actually is.
Doing a little a time will prevent you from become overwhelmed. You will also need to become strict with yourself and be consistent and develop your self-control and start building your business from the very beginning.
When starting a business there will be uncertainty and things that you don’t know and this is something that you should not fear.
Right! Which Type of Person Are You Going To Be?
Are you going to be the person that always talks about starting an online business, but are forever making excuses.
The One who really wants it and is actually going to do something about it?
Starting an online business is possible one of the most rewarding things that you can do, and in doing so it has the potential to completely change your life and lifestyle.
It is not going to be easy and you will come across obstacles along the way, but I can tell you that the satisfaction that you will get from it will be well worth it.
