We all think about starting own business and being our own boss at some point in our lives. What seems to be the reason that holds most of us back? Is it money, time, or energy? In my experience it’s been neither one of those reasons. The biggest factor that hold us back from taking the risk of starting our own business is fear. Fear of leaving the security and comfort of our 9-5 job that pays us a decent wage but not enough for us to do all the things we really want to do. So what happens is that we get complacent and just exist and never actually start living. Why should we spend most of our time working for someone else and building someone else’s dream when we can build our own? Just think about when your sitting in your death bed and you start thinking about all your experiences and memories and you ask yourself “did I live life my life to the fullest?” If you a cannot answer this questions honestly, then you are doing yourself a disservice. If starting a business is something you really want to do then take the risk today because your not getting any younger and you must learn to value your time here on earth.
Fear or (false evidence appearing real) will be your monster in your closet however, if you learn to face your monster and tell it to go away then you will accomplish so much more than you every imagined. I would suggest finding a business in which you fill a need by solving a problem. You may need to go through several businesses through your journey to find one that stick where you are passionate about and cannot wake up each day to work on it. We often need to go through struggles and pain to grow and become better people so that we can share with others our knowledge and experience.
