Motivation Monday: How to Slay Entrepreneurism

Monday motivation entrepreneurism

Monday is the most important day of the week - it's the first domino and sets the tone for the rest of the week. If you're not feeling that entrepreneurial fire in your belly today, you need a little Monday motivation on how to slay entrepreneurism.

Humans are great at finding excuses and problems for every solution. You don't have time, you don't have the money, or perhaps you don't have the right skills to get where you want to be - sound familiar? True entrepreneurs will find a way to overcome obstacles because their will to succeed is stronger than the thought of regretting never trying.

Motivation Monday: How to Slay Entrepreneurism


Starting your own business and becoming a successful entrepreneur is not for the faint-hearted. It will suck up the majority of your time and funds. But real entrepreneurs won't care because entrepreneurism is in your blood and you couldn't quit even if you wanted to.

Make throwing out the entrepreneurial baggage holding you back from your dreams your Monday motivation. Here's how to slay entrepreneurism baggage.

You don't have time.

It's a fact of nature that we make time for the things that are important to us. If you have the drive to be a successful entrepreneur, you'll make time to build your dream.

You'll do it tomorrow.

This is one of my pet peeves. If you want to make something happen, why not start today - right now?

You're not ready to lose your job security.

The recession saw a huge increase in entrepreneurs when thousands of people lost their jobs. Society's faith in job security evaporated, and people decided it was safer to build their own empires. I'm not saying quit your job immediately - it can take months to see a profit. Get all of the groundwork done around your job. Once you start making money from your business, you can go part-time when the time is right, then quit and focus on being an entrepreneur full time when the universe says you're ready.

You don't have enough money.

No one ever really has enough money to start a business, unless you somehow manage to get a huge amount of capital offered upfront which certainly isn't easy. What could you cut back on to help put more money into your business? Entrepreneurism requires sacrifices, and in true entrepreneurial spirit, you won't mind giving up vacations or luxuries for a while if it means reaching your entrepreneurial goals.

You're scared of failure.

Everyone is. Even the most seasoned entrepreneur and performer are scared of failure - that's what pushes them to get out of bed in the morning, get out there and slay their goals!

Protect your energy.

Surround yourself with ambitious people who inspire and motivate you. There is no time for negative vibes anymore or those who question your ability to make it big.
