In order to create a successful business, there are several factors that must be present. Number one, and this is a big one, you must have your heart, your passion, your drive, your fierce burning in your belly desire, as to why this business is the one you want to do. Remember, the reason for doing something is the first step and the ways to accomplish it will always present themselves. It goes back to the 4 year old psychology of “I want this and nothing will stop me, ” and the “I Have a Dream” speech. If I’m lucky and I caught you in the early part of your life before all the education kicks in, before the experience, house mortgages, and children kick in, you can pick from your heart. If you have obligations to family, or existing careers, or financial situations, you may not be able to throw everything away and start clean. Whatever your situation, you must choose something that makes your heart sing at a deeper level, something that will satisfy your soul intangibly. Otherwise, you might not find success in happiness and fulfillment of your purpose and passion.
A lot of people pick business based on “Will I make money, will I pay my bills? Well I chose that degree in college, I have to follow it…” In the early part of life, because you have less at risk and not as much to lose, it’s easy to switch around versus later in life when you have 20 years of experience or a big mortgage. You think to yourself, ”If I make a shift to do what my heart desires then I’m going to have a problem with the people that depend on me.” But the reality is that when you hook into your potentiality, if you know what your dreams are and you connect to your dreams and passion, what will happen is you work in your current job for another 5 years as you set up and build a transition. But when you are connected to the passion and the heart’s drive, the desires that you most want out of life, what will happen in that five years of work will get you a lot of money and better, bigger promotions. Because it’s being driven by excellence and legendary psychology and an extraordinary standard, you will receive bigger and better results.
You are now moving in concert and congruence with who you want to be and where your life is going at the very highest levels. For the people who say “Well I can’t use the system because I don’t know where I want to go,” or “I’m too far down the path.” Don’t say that, really dig into why your heart sings and why you want to be the person you want to be. All the answers will come and you will figure out the right transition strategies. You will teach and lead the people around you that you love and support to find their dreams because they are stuck in the same place you are. Your leadership is paramount to your ability to create a successful business. Tap into this potentiality and inevitability.
With all levels of success, your business is very important to you. Your passion for it has to be great enough for you to continue to really say your failures were so amazing. For people this is a hard concept, because you heart wants what it wants. Your heart wants you to become a rockstar! The most important aspect of being a rockstar, isn’t your album sales, it is your belief in yourself that you are a rockstar. It is only after you have truly started to believe that you are this incredible human being that your album sales begin to soar! So make yourself this incredible BUSINESS rockstar and your business albums will hit the charts in one easy leap!
