Entrepreneurship can be hard, there are a lot of things involved and we need to stay focused in order to build the success we want.
But, while it can at times feel overwhelming, I believe that one of the most important ways to get through the challenges is by one simple thing of having clarity.
Clarity can very much be the key to keeping you moving forward and becoming an actual success story.
I can tell you that for me, personally what I have found, both from personal experience and from what I have seen in business, is that there are 3 fundamental questions you need to be able to answer if you are looking to build long-term success.
Are you ready for them?
1. What do you want?
the #1 reason why people aren’t where they think they want to be and they don’t really know what they want! But, it honestly starts with you getting clarity around what it is you are looking to build in your life.
I think we spend so much time trying to live the life of others than what we actually want to do.
But changing that starts with you, taking a moment for yourself and asking what is it that I really want? What is it that I actually desire?
For me? I always wanted to have my own business and be able to be a mom and a successful entrepreneur at the same time, but I didn’t have that precise sense of purpose. Life happened and it brought me to where I am right this very minute.
I want peace of mind. I want freedom. I want to feel excited and motivated. I want my life to be an adventure. I do know what type of life I want to experience every single day.
You want to ask yourself what you want your life to look like and start doing everything to move a step closer to that vision and have the courage to make it happen.
2. Why do you want it?
There are going to be a lot of curves and a lot of ups and downs along the way but the journey isn’t going to be a straight line to success.
Your success is going to come down to your own level of commitment and that commitment will only come from you know.
why you want it.
I look back to the last few years of my life, and I know that the reason I have been able to get to where I am is that no matter what has happened I have been trying it again and again. But no matter what I had the determination, the guts to keep ongoing.
Think about every single story of success you have heard of, every one of those people has faced challenges, and it was their belief in themselves and for a better future that kept them going forward. You have to know what your true motivations are.
#1: I wanted to empower people and give them a voice. To give them the opportunity to transform their ideas, their vision and dreams into reality. To give them the tools to make an impact as well.
#2: My why was about changing the story for so many generations of women being in the shadows. I had seen it again and again in women in my family, friends and in our culture. Men dominating.
And hey, don’t get me wrong, I also want to live for mine. So creating my own definition of success was truly important to me because I know that it’s also changing the story of other women.
That’s a damn powerful why to have.
You want to have that clarity within you. That conviction that you matter what, you HAVE to be successful, you have to make the answer to Question #1 a reality.
3. What’s stopping you?
This question is the hardest one because it is being really honest with yourself.
What is stopping you from letting you achieve what you want? It can be so easy to blame external circumstances and say that they are the reason why you aren’t where you want to be.
The main reason why you aren’t where you want to be is fear. You have some sort of belief or limitation around you for achieving this amazing thing.
You think you aren’t ready yet, you don’t deserve it, you need this thing or that thing in place before you can get results. Or maybe you are afraid of what that success could do to your life.
if it wasn’t scary, it probably means you are doing something wrong, because success is always going to be on the other side of fear.
At the end of the day, it’s your choice, to be specific and narrow or as broad as you want.
You can say like I want 3 lakh this month because I want to prove to myself that I can do it, and what’s keeping me from getting there is that I’m not showing up in my business. I want to make a massive impact in the world and what’s keeping me from getting there is my fear.
However, you want to take it, go for it. The important thing is that you take your time and answer these questions,
I promise they will be a game-changer for your business and will give you such an incredible perspective in your life.
