One of the biggest determining factors in whether or not someone becomes a successful Entrepreneur is their mindset. I can attest to the fact that if you’re feeling overwhelmed, discouraged or lack focus you will NOT be able to give your business the time and dedication it needs. Here are seven things I learned you MUST give up:

Being indecisive about what you want: You’ll never leave where you are until you decide where you want to be. Make a decision to figure out what you want and then pursue it passionately. It’s important that we create a grand vision for our lives because that’s what pushes us forward despite whatever hardship or negative situation may present itself. In the words of Oprah “create the highest, grandest vision for your life, because you become what you believe”.

Procrastinating: There are two primary choices in life 1) accept conditions and exist or 2) accept the responsibilities for changing them. There was a time when I was guilty of accepting conditions, you see I complained about not making enough money to live the lifestyle I desired and having a job that I dreaded going to but I didn’t do anything to change the situation. Eventually I got sick and tired of being sick and tired and decided to do something about it! Until you believe you can have the life of your dreams AND take action to make it happen you’re going to find yourself settling. You are in control of your life, so why not create one that you want and deserve?

Choosing not to do anything: Every day is a new chance to do SOMETHING! Trust me there’s never a “perfect” time to start and progress is better than perfection. It’s better to start and make changes as needed than to start and wonder what if. I started my business with NO startup money and invested my initial profits back into the business.
