Entrepreneurs greatly benefit from being self-aware

Are you drawn to the world of entrepreneurship? Does the idea of freedom resonate with you? Does it make you eager to start your own business?

Many people feel the same way

Many people have been chasing the dream of a lifestyle business ever since Tim Ferriss published The 4-Hour Work Week.

Sounds appealing, right? Take the leap and start your own business, automate its tasks, hire a virtual assistant, and witness the profits pouring in while you’re off exploring the world or taking a well-deserved break.

Everyone craves it. That’s why numerous people have dedicated themselves to showing you the way.

“Take on these 20 tasks and watch your income reach six figures.”

“Take this online course and you’ll achieve wealth easily without putting in the work!”

Visiting different countries allows me to earn 100K in passive income every month. This is how I achieve it.

Nevertheless, entrepreneurship is a challenging endeavor.

Have you ever contemplated starting a business? Perhaps you’re over the traditional work routine, long for more control over your time, and envision being your own boss.

Simply having valid reasons is not sufficient for launching a business.

I recently learned that 96% of businesses go under within a decade. I decided to search for more information online. It seems like there’s no reliable source backing up this statistic. It’s possible that it was just a rumor that caught on.

That statement has some validity. Entrepreneurship is a game that requires a long-term perspective.

Are you interested in beginning a business venture? Or do you consider yourself an entrepreneur?

Despite having failed businesses in the past, I’m still an entrepreneur, and that’s something I’ll continue doing for the rest of my life.

Entrepreneurship is not a mere action, it’s a fundamental aspect of your being

Reflect on the question: “What defines me?”

This article may be centered around entrepreneurship, but its teachings can be implemented in all aspects of life. Creating a stable career or business requires self-awareness.

In Letters From A Stoic, Seneca delves into a multitude of subjects.

Think about whether you are more inclined towards practical work or quiet study and reflection, and follow your natural abilities and preferences.

It is a common occurrence to do things with misguided intentions such as pursuing money, fame, popularity, or due to external influences.

Embracing your nature is the key to a fulfilling life. But before you can do that, you need to have a clear understanding of your own nature.

Instead of trying to fit into someone else’s mold, create a life that aligns with your own identity and desires.

For instance, I’ve always been a go-getter. When I was young, I always had a side gig. I can still recall copying CDs, printing booklets, and selling them for a discounted price. It may not have been completely legal, but I was unaware at the time. That’s just my nature.

Who are you?

Consider a couple of questions.

What motivates me to begin a business?

Am I really into entrepreneurship or am I just fascinated by the perks it provides (freedom, time, money)?

Do I aim to learn the skills necessary for success? It is essential for entrepreneurs to have a basic understanding of every aspect of their business.

If you’re contemplating starting a business, make an effort to connect with entrepreneurs in your vicinity. Seek insights into their daily routines.

Make a decision after careful thought, not influenced by unreliable sources like videos or social media quotes.

That’s not what being an entrepreneur is about. It’s more like living in a dream world.

Starting a business is a lot of work, but it is definitely achievable with the right mindset.

Reflect on your identity before taking action. Begin with small steps and avoid making things too complex. I needed two business degrees to grasp this straightforward approach.

  1. Investigate if there is a market for your product. If it’s not out there, it could be because there is no demand. There is nothing new in this world.
  2. Choose one product or service and stick to it. Avoid complicating things with numerous variations.
  3. Entrepreneurs are like salespeople who sell their own products or services.

That’s the whole process. Remember to follow it each time you want to introduce new products.
