Authentic Entrepreneurship – How to Avoid the 3 Biggest Mistakes Spiritual and Ambitious Entrepreneurs Make Every Day
There is something so amazing about following your heart and stepping out into the world to help people, especially as an entrepreneurs. There are so many opportunities to give, to share, to heal, to help and to follow our passion, but often when we step out into the “real world” of creating a business; an entrepreneur can find themselves overwhelmed with where to start or even how to start.
I put together a list of the 3 biggest mistakes I have seen spiritual and ambitious entrepreneurs make (and admittedly these are mistakes I have made and have learned so much from).
LOOK UP > Understand that emotionally as well intellectually that we literally become what we think about.
A man is what he thinks about all day long. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
We must control our thoughts and engage with people who are positive, motivated, and achieving things we aspire to achieve because when we surround ourselves with people who have succumbed to the mediocrity of life, we can still enjoy them, but we need to be aware that their lack of desire will be contagious and we should limit our interaction with them.
NEVER GIVE UP > Realize that our limitations are self-imposed. God created our bodies and our minds to be amazing resources and I believe that we truly have the ability to do anything we set our minds to doing. The opportunities of this world are enormous beyond belief, therefor; if we believe we deserve the very best without any doubt, and if we implement the proper strategies to manifest the very best, we will receive the very best and more.
Opposition does not mean you are on the wrong path, but on the right path to something big! ~ Christie Ruffino
When we face obstacles, they are meant to shape and strengthen us, not give us a reason to give up. So many entrepreneurs stop or change direction when things get tough and never get to enjoy the riches of life they were created for.
LIGHTEN UP > Business building is a serious endeavor, but it does not have to be void of fun. The one thing I stress over and over again, when I coach leaders who are trying to develop their following, is to have fun. Laughter is a natural form of energy and energy is contagious.
There is little success where there is little laughter. ~ Andrew Carnegie
One of our first responses as an infant is to light up and smile back at our parents who are smiling at us. This is the same principle in business building. People like to follow businesses and other people who have positive dispositions and are able to inspire them to take actions that make them happy.
