When things get tough we all suddenly “get” religion. But I think having faith in a power greater than yourself is useful if you are to be a successful entrepreneur. You need that extra brick of confidence that faith can give you. Trying to control everything and everyone, trying to push and force things to work, puts you constantly up against the wall; you wilI be exhausted. If you can make a leap of faith and trust, you no longer have to push; you can pull opportunities and people towards you. here’s my top 5 Tips for getting that extra boost in business.
You need to trust in something beyond yourself. The first thing is to believe in something – call it God, a group of colleagues, your family or school, or even your business idea. Leaders are believers: you have to believe in something outside yourself.
Second, you also need to believe in yourself, and whatever it is you choose to do. Whatever that is, that is the thing you are meant to do. If you determine you were meant to do something, any obstacle is just an inconvenient annoyance you can get through.
You have to resign yourself to the fact that you can’t control anything or anybody except yourself. So, focus on your own responses.
When you can’t control everything, you need to trust in something. Actually, you can’t control anything or anybody except yourself. You can only control how you respond to things. That’s it. Nothing else, so there’s no sense in trying. Trust me on this one.
Have faith that you are where you’re meant to be, and keep going. Faith protects you from the naysayers. Ask yourself: Are you confident enough to believe, to take centre stage and ask life for everything? Or are you sitting in the back mezzanine section just watching the show? To get started, you need to find the faith to take to the stage with all the lights bearing down on you. That can be a scary idea.
Sure, it’s scary to step outside your comfort zone, to try to do what no one else is doing. But if you truly believe in your idea and yourself, you can do it – that’s what makes you a leader.
In business as in life, things change, sands shift, and suddenly everything can go wrong, but if you believe that your goal is right around the corner, you can stampede through the bandits of your mind. Faith blinds you to “it can’t be done.” It gives you that craziness that keeps you going. Faith protects you from naysayers and well-meaning friends who don’t want you to change.
Faith is contagious. Build your business with people who are inspired by your leadership and blind faith in what you are doing.
If you don’t believe in your idea or yourself – I mean believe enough to bet the ranch and sacrifice precious time that can never be recaptured – don’t do it. Leaders are believers, and people follow leaders. Businesses cannot be built without people, so you need to have that blind faith in what you are doing so you can share it. Without that kind of faith, no one is going help you on your journey. Faith is contagious.
Decide what you want, and believe you can have it. Even if it seems out of reach at the moment. You have a compass, use it to move in the direction you want to go. It’s your intuition. Life is a decision, and no one can make it but you. Ask yourself if you have enough faith to take a different path and get on with it? You can’t read the next chapter if you keep re-reading the last one. Faith gives you the courage to turn the page.
I’m a seasoned start-up entrepreneur and property financier who built built businesses worth over $200 million. Since 1992, I helped start a bank credit department, founded a mortgage company, and built the largest single-branded real estate company across five countries in Central Europe. I also developed a portfolio of shopping centers and hypermarkets in Eastern Europe, constructing over two million square feet of retail space.
Today I am involved in the entrepreneur community, trying to share what I’ve learned and I serve as a mentor for startups.
I have authored a new business startup report called “How To Start A Business”. This shows you how to find, enter and profit immediately from a high demand market with virtually no competition… what I call a Blue-Sky Market!
This is how I could turn £400 into £50,000 in just 8 weeks.
Blue-Sky Markets are all around us. You just have to know where to look and have the courage to do things a little different.
