Just a Quick Reminder: 8 Tips to Motivate Every Entrepreneur.
Joseph Joubert was a French man who lived between the mid-18th century and early 19th century. There were not so many business moguls during his time, but he was known to always write about moral, philosophical and literary topics. One of his most popular quotes still applies to entrepreneurs today;
When you go in search of Honey, you must expect to be stung by Bees
Life never makes anything easy, the best things in life are only achieved through “thorough consistency” and you can’t expect to get it by just lounging. The founders of Google, Coca-Cola, Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon didn’t get it easy, they found it really hard to start and keeping at it was the biggest challenge.
These 8 tips are facts you already know, you just might need to read them again to stay motivated:
Don’t be Afraid to Take the First Step
It’s not enough to have a great idea, make all the necessary research and hit that START button. It’s wise to not start what you can’t finish, but at the same time, you just might have a chance at being the most successful mogul in your industry. This is hard though, but this is your ticket to making the invincible become visible.
You must be sure you’re selling the right product, the product people actually need. As much as you love that idea or that product you want to sell, be sure people are ready to give you their hard earned money for it.
Basically, this the major foundation of any business and if this flops, success isn’t guaranteed. Conduct an accurate market research, make sure you meet people’s need no matter what service you choose to offer.
Work Hard, Work Fast, & Grow Fast!
There are no other explanations for this, you just have to put in so much gas so the business can grow and attract profitable investments. Little growth wouldn’t make so much difference and if this doesn’t happen within a considerable period, chances are you’re ploughing the wrong bed.
Starting a business isn’t for a fragile heart, you need to be able to take multiple blows when things go wrong and move on as quickly as possible. There’s absolutely no guarantee that you’d be fine within three years and this can be extremely tormenting, learn to deal with problems fast and acquire as many skills as possible.
Push Gently, Don’t Overwork Yourself
We’ve mentioned this a lot of times in our blog, a sick, burned out person can never run a business successfully. While you’re trying to achieve all that’s achievable, don’t forget to live a life and enjoy the little things.
Before you do this, make sure that person compliments you and fills up the potholes you leave behind. To be honest, starting and running a business alone will consume so much of your brain power, a business partner or supportive team can ease up the stress.
Failure in Business is a Vital Part of Business Success
You probably didn’t know that Samsung lost $1 billion due to the constant explosion of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and further lost $17 billion in sales. The product kept blowing up everywhere around the world and even got banned from airplanes.
At the moment, Samsung is still one of the largest brands in the world and their latest mobile products, S8/S9 keep making waves and aren’t even blowing up.
Maybe, you launched that product or software at the wrong time, probably during an economic recession and that’s why it failed woefully. You can’t always have your way in business, failure makes up your success story and helps you avoid further mistakes.
Keep Going at It
This isn’t easy at all, but you need to do more hard work after the hard work. In other words, the hard work never ends. Failure doesn’t mean you have to quit, it only means you should either keep trying that same thing or you try something new.
