Have you ever thought about starting your own online business, but you are afraid to take the first step? If your answer is yes, then you must ask yourself the following questions.
What is the thing that is holding you back?
What is the reason why you have not started yet?
Many years ago, I had those same exact questions. I have always dreamed of starting my own business, but I made so many excuses to make sense out of my procrastination. Some of my excuses were:
1. I do not know what type of online business to be a part of
2. Starting a business is very costly and I do not have the right amount of finances
3. What if my online business fails?
4. I do not have the experience or the right knowledge to start and manage an online business
The enemy that was behind all of my excuses was called FEAR. According to a successful author named Paulo Coelho, he said “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to execute, and that is the fear of failure”. Fear is one of the biggest dream killers that keep most people from unleashing their true potential. Fear is a result of someone who believes that they are unworthy of greatness.
To make the transition from being a fearful entrepreneur to actually starting a business was the will to equip myself with the necessary tools like wisdom, understanding and last but not least knowledge.
Starting an online business does require some capital which you might not have. But, it also depends on the type of online business that you decide to be affiliated with.
Furthermore, I was afraid of my business failing.
Business failure and business success is all a part of life. You live and you learn. According to Small Business Administration, about 65% of new online businesses survive 7 years or more. Your chances of success in your business depends on you. Ultimately, you will need passion for the business you get into, you will need skills and knowledge of that business, you will need a certain level of determination for success in that business and lastly, you must constantly dream of financial independence
