A lot of people dream about entrepreneurship and the freedom that comes with having one’s own business. However, very few individuals go ahead and turn their dreams into reality. If you are reading this article, then you are also likely one of those people who aspire to build a business.
I want to tell you that you can have everything that you wish for. You’ll just have to step out of your comfort zone and take some action. I am going to give you some key pointers and guidelines in this article so that you can take measured steps in the right direction.
Keep in mind that the steps outlined below will help you in establishing any kind of business – be it online or a conventional brick and mortar setup.

Step 1 – Find Something You Love
I can’t emphasize this enough.
If you want to be truly successful, then you will have to find something that you absolutely love doing. Most people make the mistake of choosing a business idea for money alone.
In no time, they hit a plateau as it is very difficult to continue putting in your time and energy into something you don’t care enough about.
Don’t be in a rush – take your time to figure out what really excites you. Is there anything that you like doing so much that you lose track of time while immersed in it? Ask your loved ones what they think are your passions and major interests.
You can also walk into a bookstore and observe what kind of books you naturally gravitate towards.
Step 2 – Identify a Niche
It is much easier to become successful at anything if you can nail down your niche. For this, you must identify who your ideal buyer is – what are their problems, concerns, interests? What are they looking for? What are their major pain points?
Thereafter, brainstorm the solutions you can provide. You must research the top 10 players in your niche to identify what they are doing right and what you can do better than them.
Most people don’t spend enough time in the research phase. I would advise you to be extremely thorough with this.
It is also a great idea to identify a sub-niche within your niche. For instance, if you want to start a self-help blog, then instead of choosing a highly competitive broad niche, you can select a narrower sub-niche like a self-help blog for single moms or dads.
Step 3 – Learn from a Pro
Most ventures fail because a vast majority of people who venture into the business world don’t know what they are doing. Before you start setting up your business, you have to spend time and energy studying other people who are making money doing what you want to do.
Figure out how they are making money and try to get a rough estimate of how much they might be earning from it. It’s really not worth attempting to reinvent the wheel so instead of trying to learn from free articles and other resources, invest in a course that will give you a blueprint to act upon.
The beauty of the internet age is that we have all the information we need at the tip of our fingers. No matter how unique your idea is, most likely there is someone else who is already doing it. You just have to find a way to learn from the right people, and then figure out a way to do it better than anyone else.
Step 4 – Deliver Value
No one likes being sold to. The irony is that people will automatically be willing to buy anything you offer if you win their trust first by giving them something that they perceive to be of high value.
Create informational content you can circulate around or offer something free like an ebook, samples, etc. If you can consistently add value to people’s lives, then, over time, they will become a lot more willing to invest their money in your products and services.
How to Beat Procrastination
Fear is usually the root cause of all procrastination. People can be just as afraid to succeed as they are to fail. As a result, the masses prefer to take the path of least resistance. They constantly pursue short-term pleasure avoiding pain in any form and at all costs.
A certain amount of pain is necessary for growth. If you can discipline yourself to do what’s needed, then you will surely succeed.
Hence, the only way to beat procrastination is to just go ahead and do what you need to do. If you’ll sit around for too long, then your mind will surely talk you out of it. We all feel fear but let us not allow it to paralyze us into inaction.
Practice Meditation and Affirmations
Having a daily meditation practice will help you train your mind to calm down and experience a state of peace. You don’t have to force it – just allow yourself to be a witness to the workings of the mind instead of being a slave to its tricks and ploys.
Another powerful tool in your arsenal can be the practice of affirmations. Find out what your major fears and limiting beliefs are, and then write down the exact opposite of those. For instance, if your fear is “I am going to fail at this,” you can write down, “I am always successful at everything I do.”
Every time you find your old fearful thoughts rising to the surface, counteract them by immediately repeating your affirmations (silently or loudly – whatever is apt in the situation).
There is no such thing as failure. If you have followed all the steps outlined above, then you are guaranteed to succeed. It might not happen right away, but, one day, your dreams will surely materialize.
You have to remain persistent and continue taking action until that happens. No matter what, never give up. Look at every setback as a speed breaker that might slow you down temporarily but is still bringing you closer to your dreams. That’s the Truth anyway.
Persevere and you shall have everything you wish for!
