Get Out Of Your Own Way

You want to start a business, yet you are not making any progress towards that goal. There seems to be a lot of things in the way. Your idea isn’t good enough. You don’t have enough money to invest into it. You don’t have the time to do the business planning that is necessary before you get started.

You think of “some day” when these things that are in your way won’t be anymore. You’ll be able to get started then and your dream will finally be a reality. There is a problem though. Without action, someday will never come.

If it is really important to you, choose to make starting a business a priority. You’ll have to sacrifice things you like doing. Watching TV, playing video games, and going out to dinner are fun things to do but they won’t get you closer to your goal. You might think starting a business is your top priority but if you are doing these other things instead, they are really your top priority.

You have to choose what’s important. If you don’t have time to focus on the things you need to do to start your business, it isn’t that important to you, is it?
