There’s always the unplanned and the unexpected. For all you super-planners and organizers, it’s time to accept the fact that, despite your carefully laid strategy, some things just go wrong. When it happens, try your best to keep a level head. Be willing to adapt to your circumstances, and apply what you learned in your Pre-Entrepreneur Checklist Item #2: Be Determined.
Easy is not guaranteed. That doesn’t mean everything is guaranteed to be hard. You’ll experience the occasional sheer bliss of things just falling into place with very little effort. However, success won’t always be painless. Easy way or hard way – there will always be an opportunity to learn and grow.
There will always be some level of risk involved with entrepreneurship. You can’t avoid it altogether, but you can embrace the concept that risks come in many different guises and intensities. The only way to become truly successful is to develop a healthy relationship with calculated risk.
This may be the scariest thing you’ll ever do. That’s perfectly okay. Some entrepreneurs find their own fear to be one of their biggest hindrances to success. Fear of failure, fear of humiliation, fear of rejection, fear of achievement – the list goes on. It may take conscious effort on your part, but there’s tremendous benefit in learning to manage and channel your fear. It’s vital to your personal development and to the growth or your business.
