Do you love the idea of being an home business entrepreneur and working on a project that provides some extra income and is something that you are passionate about? But is something holding you back?
It's possible that you're going through some self-sabotaging behaviors.
Are You Playing The Waiting Game?
Do you hear yourself say, "I'll start a home business when I've done X or Y." It may make sense but it's a waiting game that will never end. If you don't take action now, nothing will happen.
Perhaps You Don't Want to Do "It" Alone?
If you haven't started a home business because you're waiting around for a friend or family member to join you, you may miss out on a great new adventure. You can do it yourself without anyone else doing it with you. Remember that there are lots of online communities and entrepreneur forums where you can hook up with other home business owners.
You Don't Think You're Smart Enough
If you keep telling yourself that you're not smart enough, you'll have a hard time breaking out of the box you've put yourself in. Forget about who you think you are. Do what it is that you want to do. There are plenty of small business opportunities that you can start from home. You don't have to be an expert business person to make it work.
You're Worried What People Will Think
When anybody starts anything new, there will be people around them that will question it. If you start a home based business there may be people around you who will be dubious. Even if these people mean well, don't let them spoil your ambitions and efforts.
You Don't Think You've Got The Time
We all have the same 24 hours in a day. Narrow your focus and shut down the noise that happens all around you. Start doing what needs to get done. Turn off your phone, close your email, ignore social media, and focus 100% on your new business. Prioritize what you are doing so that you can do the most important things first. If you're a home business owner, your first priority each day should be doing the work that you need to do for yourself as your "first" client.
You Keep Saying: "I'll Never Succeed"
If you don't believe you'll become successful with your home business you most likely won't. You have to visualize the success you want to achieve to make it happen. If all you see is negative, that's all you'll get.
How many people do you know who run their own home business? Maybe one or two or maybe none. There is no reason why you can't be one of them. One reason might be you just don't know where to start. But you know what? You're only 6 steps away from running your own home business.
