Build a Successful Business By First Expanding Your Belief of What’s Possible When You Put in the Work
As you're reading this, there are customers worldwide buying products and services, joining programs, and hiring entrepreneurs. Internet access, social media, software, and new ways of reaching customers have created an exciting opportunity for hungry entrepreneurs.
I don't know how business is going for you. You may be experiencing one of your best years or not generating enough revenue to pay your bills. You might be dealing with self-limiting beliefs that keep you from seeing what's possible. Most of us set comfortable goals: we limit our vision of what's possible.
You can build a comfortable business that generates just enough to let you live a comfortable life. You can sell just enough and put in just enough effort to give you some freedom. But we live in the digital information age with unlimited opportunities to reach customers and do business in places with billions of potential customers. You'll only get there if you understand these four things.
You Deserve More Reach With Strategic Effort
About 5.1 billion people use the internet every day. Billions of engaged users are on social media daily. You can purchase ads through Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, TV, and more. You can also reach a broad potential customer base organically. You can have more reach online without tremendous effort while keeping your expenses low.
You can build an email list, grow your social media networks, build local connections, get media exposure, and partner with other successful entrepreneurs. Most of these are free or low-cost strategies to increase your reach and generate more revenue. You can market your business to a global audience from the comfort of your home in your PJs.
You Don't Need a Large Team to Create World Domination
Previously, you would have an office and hire a secretary or team. Today, you can hire virtual assistants and freelancers online. You can create a team that you lead through your laptop and software. This team can take on tasks that allow you to scale your business quickly. You can take on projects from clients and companies all over the world.
Creating this team is less expensive than hiring a physical team. How you hire and what you classify team members as will be your choice, but you have options. If you've felt like you couldn't grow a large business by yourself, you're right. However, you can hire these professionals to build a business that experiences explosive growth without physical limitations.
Our Mind Spirals and Limits the Action We Take
One little thought can turn into a crisis in our minds. We stack thoughts and situations and try to use them as evidence that our self-limiting beliefs are correct.
Today, you carry a powerful knowledge base in your pocket. There's no cap on what you can learn. You can learn the strategy that gets you to your wildest goals, but only if you stop holding back on what you think is possible.
Get honest about your thoughts related to huge goals. Process your feelings fully. You can train your mind to return to its peak state when it starts to get out of line. Don't let a thought of doubt or fear become a mountain in your mind. Stop limiting your vision by letting your emotions control you. Dream bigger and embrace the uncomfortable.
Understand That Nothing is Stopping You From Accomplishing What Feels Possible
Self-worth and confidence can be two areas that profoundly affect entrepreneurs. It affects everything from your actions to how you price your products and services. The path to greatness starts with you recognizing you deserve good things and more.
You are amazing: believe that and let your actions prove you believe it. Nothing is stopping you but you.
You don't need permission to build a business that creates freedom. Work hard and ignore the naysayers who will never understand. Get confident in who you are and the value you provide. You know what to do if that value is not where you want it to be.
There's opportunity all around you. Don't limit what you think is possible for your business. Build a business that's bigger than you.
Have a massive vision for everything you'll accomplish, and then get to work. Nothing is stopping you from building a globally successful business. Don't "fake it until you make it." Just make it.
