We’ve all had an idea before. Whether we wanted to write a new book, build a website for a charity we love, or start a new business, we’ve all thought about starting something different and new. Often times, we have great ideas, but we never execute them. Why?
There are tons of reasons why many don’t make the leap from the old to the new, but for many it all starts with one thing: fear.
Yep, you heard me. You and everyone here at Project 100 were both terrified at one point. Maybe you still are. But being scared to take a leap into the unknown is normal. We all love to stay at home in our cozy houses all wrapped up in the warm, comfortableness of it all.
But if everyone stayed in their comfort zone all the time we wouldn’t have many of the things we take for granted today.
Like the light bulb. Many thought it couldn’t be done, but did Thomas Edison quit? Nope. He tested over 3,000 designs and still didn’t give up until he found the right one. It’s time to find your light bulb and get started!
If you’re scared, have an idea, and are reading this right now, it’s time to get up and be brave! Don’t be afraid of your dreams and ideas. Great things have all sounded crazy at one time or another.
If it’s not fear, it’s capital. Many believe they don’t have the resources or income to make their dreams happen. Often times, that’s not exactly the case; we just don’t want to spend our hard-earned cash on something we don’t know will work out perfectly.
The easiest way to avoid money shock when you are going for your dreams is to spend a little at a time. If you’re unsure, work towards something small at first and see how that goes. Little by little you’ll see that it was worth it in the end.
What will your family say? Will your spouse look at you crazy when you say you want to quit your corporate job to become an entrepreneur? These are all thoughts that run through our minds that often put us off starting something new.
But the truth is, your reputation shouldn’t be about the big fancy titles and big fancy paychecks.
Your reputation should be based on your heart, soul, and what you believe and do every day. If your family, friends, or significant others begin to turn their backs on you because you are going for it, then maybe they are just jealous that they are not doing the same for themselves.
Don’t feel like you are being left behind if they decide on the negatives of your new business or idea. Continue to push forward and do it anyways. There is nothing more satisfying to have those that doubt you come back and tell you that you’ve done a great job.
You have to be willing to let some people go in order to grow. Don’t let the haters get you down.
