4 Things You Must Do To Be a Successful Entrepreneur

Leaders commit and make decisions. You can listen to other people’s opinions to gather information, but you must go with your intuition. Entrepreneurs must make decisions and not look back.

1. Make a decision.

Leaders must make tough choices. Of course you can get advice from people you trust, but ultimately you don’t want to rely only on other people’s opinions. Your intuition is a powerful thing, so go with it. You must decide if something is what you want to do.

Once you decide on your way forward, all kinds of doors open up for you. You will meet people, and things will happen; as though you’re just along for the ride.

William Hutchison Murray, a famous Scottish mountaineer, wrote a book called The Scottish Himalayan Expedition in 1951. The book starts: “We had put down our passage money – booked a sailing to Bombay . . . until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. . . . Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”

In the beginning, it may take you a long time to make a decision. You may spend sleepless nights, agitated and anxious. But when you determine your trajectory, the weight should fall off your shoulders, and you will wonder what all the fuss was about.

2. Make a commitment to that decision.

Entrepreneurs must make decisions and not look back; this frees you to move forward. Once a commitment is made, you will find it much easier to get on with whatever you’re meant to do.

It’s like trying to dive off a high-dive board. It looks terrifying. How do you do that? Just run up there and flip backwards? Other people seem to be jumping off just fine. Yet you can’t ask other people to do something you can’t do yourself.

You have to make a decision not to let your fear dictate what you can do: you may not be very good at first, but you have to try anyway. Once you’ve made a commitment to your idea, others will gladly follow. It works that way in business, too.

3. Take a step.

Stop thinking and take the plunge. Remember, a series of single steps is all it takes to eventually arrive at your goal. That first step can be hard, but they all get easier after that.

After you decide, it’s easy, but there is no turning back. A decision makes taking action much easier if you know it’s final. The scary part of committing to anything is thinking about it. Stop thinking and take the plunge. This is not easy, and you’ll probably still look for all kinds of excuses to avoid decisions. But you will learn to recognize your procrastination, and to force yourself to move forward. Nothing can stop you but your own thinking. As Nike says, “Just do it.” Ask yourself, what is one thing you have been procrastinating about because you’re afraid to face it or fearful of making a major mistake? Do you think you are able to do that one thing?

4. Trust in the miracle.

Once you’ve made your decision, committed to it, and taken the first step, you’ll be amazed at how many doors open up for you. You’ll never know until you try.

If you had to walk around the world, you could do it. How do you know? You know because once you take that first step, it’s one step at a time, and eventually you’ll arrive. You just need to take that first step and keep going, and each step becomes easier and easier.
