Starting your own business is kind of likebuying a ticket for that rollercoaster.• Youre excited, a little scared, but you know you want to do it and no one can talk you out of it.• Optimism prevails, or at least it should. As a general rule, if you go in expecting your business to fail, chances are it will!• When you send negative energy out, you will get negative energy back.
When you think about your business, I wantyou to always feel the same fun, excitementthat you do when youre on the incline ofthe rollercoaster track… not the sheer terroryou feel as youre careening down the otherside!
• Dont let that stop you from getting on the ride.• You can choose to take the safest route, getting a steady paycheck at a 9-5, or you can learn how to conquer this ride.• And it could be the ride of your life!
Usually in the start-up phase, youre firedup and optimistic.• Even though others before you may have tried and failed, its going to be different for you.• And youre going to need this attitude to carry you through those down times, to keep you motivated and energized.
You have to believe in your business for itto be successful, and mentally force outany negative thoughts that bring youdown.• When you look at someone whos successful in business, you dont see the years of sweat and toil and self-doubt that preceded that success.• People are successful only because of the hard work and belief they have in themselves and their idea.
Life at the peak of your business isbeautiful, allowing you to take in thepanoramic view of your success.• You can now afford to hire more hands, take more time off, and relax as your business runs efficiently.
Your business can just as easily be derailed by complacency, mismanagement, lapse of judgment, or economic downturn. But this doesnt have to be the end!Theres always time for another ride!
