This is in respond to one of the popular questions asked during my one-on-one session or those asked of the friends that I meet. Hope this helps 🙂
You may start your business because of your passion. Or, you may start your business with the skills that you have.
But, what keeps you going during the low period or challenges you face in the business is your WHY or PURPOSE.
You why can be as simple as in the example mention below.
Your ‘why’ may be to have extra income to support your ageing parent or you want to be able to spend more time with your children…. or it is your dream to own your own business, etc.
What you need to do is to have Clarity on your ‘why’. Take some time to ponder on this. Write it down if you feel you need to. Keep it within easy reach. Take it out every now and then and look at it and ‘feel’ it. Last but not least, embed it in your heart. Guard it well.
Having done the above, it will not only make you excited when you wake up in the morning or it will be the last thing on your mind before you sleep. It will help you pull through during the rough times.
See you in the next post. In the meantime, take care and wish you success in what ever you do.
