You must have been told of a lot of things to add to your life in order to gain success in what you want to do. However, this article is all about things you should give up or subtract from your life or attitude if you want to be a successful entrepreneur. These tips come from Vishal Jain, a prominent motivational speaker and marketing professional. He has millions of followers on the social media and his tips are known to bring in results.
Read on to find out more.
Give up excuses
You are responsible for your own life, no matter whether you are a beginner or not. You need to embrace your failures as well as your weaknesses because if you keep making excuses for it, you will never be able to walk beyond the same. Excuses limit us from growing in our life. Therefore, give up on them. Vishal says, “own your life; no one else will.”
Give up perfectionism
Fear of failure doesn’t allow us to take decisive action but on the other hand, this fear arises out of our need to be 100% right or perfect in our work. Though it is not wrong to aspire for perfectionism, but to measure every task of yours with that same yardstick would result in you taking lesser risks, which will limit your chances at success. You will end up losing many opportunities to better your personal and professional lives.
Give up toxic people
You know the saying, ‘a man is known by the company he keeps.’ Well, it is true and it is time you take it seriously. People become who they spend most of their time with. For instance, if you spend your time with average thinking people, your thought process would remain average. While if you stay with people who are ambitious and driven, their attitude will be reflected in your life as well. You will be more successful in the second case!
Give up trying to please everyone
Successful people prioritize their tasks and their lives. This means they know when to say ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. For instance, if you have an important presentation the next day and suddenly your mother in law drops in unannounced for dinner. You need to say ‘no’ to cooking her an elaborate dinner and order takeaway because you need time to prepare your presentation and go over it to make changes.
Give up copying others
Finally, Vishal’s most important advice for budding entrepreneurs is to ‘be yourself’. He says, “it’s true! No one is you! That’s what makes everyone unique and catches the eye.”
Hope these pearls of wisdom help you in succeeding too!
