Don’t look to others for inspiration

When we feel fragile, like the time we start something new. It could be a new diet, business, relationship etc. We feel like we need other people to reinforce our beliefs. That everything will work out, that we are doing the right thing. But that doesn’t always happen in fact, it almost never does.

People tend to believe in what they see

The sad truth is that your loved ones will never believe that you can pull something off, till you actually pull it off. Kinda defeats the purpose, but that’s the way the world works.

When you start a new business it’s important to have a structured plan, for cases just like this one. You will not get support from your family so you better have a map to plan your course. You need to be able to push yourself in the beginning because it’s going to be hard.

For that, you need to understand what motivates you. What will keep you moving forward? Is it the bills that you will have to pay soon? or is it the new car your going to buy. once you find out what pushed you more, focus on that and don’t look back.
