I know it's tempting to stay online watching YouTube and TikTok videos all day dreaming of how you are going to take these easy to understand ideas and make millions of dollars but you never take action. Wanting to start a new business is not starting a new business, you have to take action! You have to actually take the first step, implement what you have learned, and start to take action towards your future endeavors.
As I sit at my desk writing this blog I am questioning my advice to you. Trust me, taking action towards building a new business is scary but not even trying is unimaginable. Once I was awakened to another way of thinking and living I don't know how I can stand by on the sideline while other people actually are creating the business that I want to build for myself. It started with getting my mindset into a entrepreneurial way of thinking by reading books.
Reading is the easiest and cheapest way to get your mindset on track to learn from successful people who have already done the hard work and want to help you take action on building a business for yourself. I couldn't believe how much I was learning and how much I needed to truly change the way I think about money. Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki is the first book I read and I had a mind altering experience. I instantly awakened to the fact that I was thinking all wrong when it comes to money and how I make it. I would definitely recommend reading this book if you haven't read it and if you have read it I think it would be a good re-read. Also, if that book doesn't start to get your wheels moving, I would read The 4 - Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris which should push you into action and off of Netflix.
Now we all need some Netflix binge watching from time to time but you can binge watch Bridgerton or The Ripper another day. You have a business to start and to run! The more you put into your business the more you will see your business grow. This entrepreneur thing is a marathon not a sprint and if you think that you can do one thing a week in your business and you'll be a millionaire traveling to the Maldives in 2 weeks you are mistaken. The reason successful people take amazing vacations is because they work their butt off to make the money that allows them to pay for that grand vacation.
So I implore you to get up and take action! Write a new blog post, record a TikTok, edit and post a new YouTube tutorial, or set up a new ad campaign. Do something that is going to push your business further. Without taking steps to move forward you will never get anywhere with your business.
