Act Now-Think Later: shoot first - ask questions when the smoke clears
Perseverance Over Inspiration
Cliched! We've all heard that new ideas are 1% Inspiration and 99% Hard Work. That is correct. Spot on. Bulls-Eye!
We know the score. As innovators, creators and those with an entrepreneurial flash of panache, perseverance is key.
Act Now-Think Later. This is what makes or breaks the inspiration. Perseverance only comes into play when the actual work has commenced.
Stop doodling with what you've got and make it already...
Innovative ideas are a baker's dozen to the dime but it is only a small percentage that actually see the light of day. Why?
The image above illustrates quite succinctly how an entrepreneur must balance a rigorous daily schedule in birthing that idea into a reality. Shrug Now Start Up or forever smoke your peace pipe!
That is the reality of the situation. Perfecting the idea on paper is a million miles away from making the dream come true.
It is not enough to know what lies ahead -you must dig into the terrain.
Think Tanks: Keep Your Juice On
Most ideas come and go in the blink of an eye. Successful Start Ups move into the realm of creation with doubt, trepidation and so on and so forth, just like everybody, but what makes them achieve their goals is a #Tenacity of belief in their own core values: that's also known as #Integrity here on this site.
Tenacity is the most important factor when deciding you're going through with something. These articles do not provide any sort of technical or knowledge-based information, they are directed at the core of the reader - that dark, secret place where we all dream of wealth, power & glory. Amen.
Keep your juice on! Staying focused is the most difficult part of starting up something new: niche ventures, new apps, software and product development are all sun-dried processes. What sorts the wheat from the chaff is the ability to dig into the terrain and stay the course.
Daily Acts of Motivation - not random acts of inspriation
The global market is a fickle, mutating, transforming but above all dynamic entity.
Hitting the bull's eye of success requires the innovator to uphold core principles.
The core principles of each person are basically ethically aligned to their communities. We partake of a social conscience whether we are aware of it or not -a successful entrepreneur has reconciled their core principles with their goals in an ethical manner.
This philosophical debate has commenced on a very seminal level of existence in which the entrepreneur must battle against imaginary foes of the mind: fantastical enemies which are represented in all levels of society in diverse fashion.
The entrepreneurial mind-set is such that it looks for collective growth instead of personal gratification - this is the essence of business & commerce: this is the foundation upon which financial success is built.
The current state of competition is based on jungle principles: the strong beat the weak.
In addressing this changing status quo I must quote a very dynamic entrepreneur to illustrate to the fullest the contrast of success-orientated perception against the perceived mentality of business:
Competition is for losers...
In closing it is important not to omit a crucial piece of the puzzle in any entrepreneur's jig-saw of success: you are the competition on your path to wealth, power & glory. Savvy?
