Excuses For Not Starting Your Own Business
I don’t have the time.
Everyone has the same amount of time. The only difference is what you’re willing to do with yours.
If you were trapped underground and had only 24 hours’ worth of oxygen, you wouldn’t check your Twitter feed or chat with friends or spend a little “me time” in front of the TV. You’d dig your butt off the entire time.
Apply the same level of importance and urgency to what you want to accomplish and your schedule will instantly clear. Finding the time is always a matter of how badly you want it.
It’s Too Risky – Yes, starting a business is a risk. But ask yourself this, is the reward worth the risk? Most often than not, the answer will be yes. You may be risking your free time, your start-up costs, and pushing your limits, but that’s what it takes to be successful. Even if your business doesn’t take off initially, that doesn’t mean you can’t make some changes and get back to it. The only risk here is not taking the risk!
I’m Too Late.
I can’t think of a great idea.
I don’t have much money. So what?Lucky you. If you had loads you’d only blow it anyway, like most cash-rich start-ups do. Stop complaining and look at it this way:
millionaires start businesses and fail all the time; people with nothing start businesses and succeed all time. Start at home, start small and work with what you’ve got – it might take you longer, but what’s the rush? .
Everyone is great at something and not so great at other things. We all have some skills we shine at and some skills we outsource – if needed.
