We hear it all the time, “Stay true to your mission. Find your path and stick to it. But what does it really mean to transform an idea in to reality? It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with the idea of executing a major idea and sometimes intimidation can bring some apprehension to getting the ball rolling. Finding a passion is hard enough but to get the wheels turning to keep that passion alive, it takes some serious hard work walking along with faith. Below, I have summed up some of the best advice I’ve received throughout my life:
Don’t think about it for too long
For some reason, it’s natural to hesitate at a really great idea. When it comes to hesitation, the mind suddenly stands still and nothing makes sense. Have you ever thought of an idea that someone else ended up taking credit for? Don’t allow this to happen anymore. When an idea presents itself, don’t think about it for too long. Don’t give your fear a chance to talk you out of it. Go for it! Create a place in your head where it is possible and hold on to that prospect. Don’t falter from all the ideas that come along with it. If it’s worth it then it’s ahrd work and sitting still is only an excuse for delay.
With everything, we need experts to guide us in to the light. They’re the ones who have done it before you and 9 times out of 10, they’re willing to help you not fall flat on your face. Find someone locally or even internationally to answer some questions you may have even if it’s asking where to start. Asking for help is one of those things we should all practice. Pride may be the reason many people end up doing eveyrhing by themselves but asking for help definitely builds character and potentially longevity as an entrepreneur. It builds character because there’s humility in asking for help. The more humble your approach, the more genuine your feedback will be and in the business for launching ideas, honest feedback is a solid foundation.
Walk In Your Faith
Having faith is the knot that ties all of your passion and hard work together. It’s the glue that can stick or falter. Walk in your faith. Walk with your head in the clouds of belief. Only you can create an image of confidence and persistence with your drive to execute your mission. Only you can breathe life into your passion and guide it to the throws of success. Faith is the fuel to start up and continue working towards success. Don’t let your faith falter because your great idea will suffer. Remember why you started and let that belief carry you to your success.
