Online Home Based Business Challenge
An online home based business will challenge you. There will be times when you don’t know what to do, when you’re worried about making any money at all and when it seems like working harder gets you further behind on every measure of success. These are some of the big fears that anyone starting an online home based business faces and you’ll have to learn to overcome them if you want to succeed.
Fear is natural and productive. It can motivate you to work harder, it can make you more creative and it can help you overcome the creeping fatalism to which we are all vulnerable. Being afraid is not being a coward. In fact, ask anyone who has been heroic in their lives and, unless they’re stark raving mad, they’ll tell you that they were most certainly afraid.
Conquer Fear and you can conquer any online home based business
Cowardice is when fear prevents you from acting. Most of the time, when this type of impairment stops someone from being successful at their own online home based business, it’s because fear took them totally by surprise. It’s not a moral failing; it’s a symptom of being unprepared.
First, accept the reality that you will be afraid when you strike out on your own. You’re not giving up security, however. If you’re working a 9-5 right now, you have the illusion of security. They could drop you like a bad habit at any time, so don’t think you’re secure in your job. That illusion, however, is very comforting and hard to give up. Assume that you will be afraid and you’ll be ready to make sure that you don’t become paralyzed with fear when you are frightened a bit.
Starting a new online home based business and Embracing Change
Part of what makes people afraid about starting an online home based business is the fact that they’re worried about the changes that they’ll have to deal with. No more guaranteed weekends off, no more guaranteed salaries and benefits and so forth; all of this can be intimidating. Embrace that change. Remember that an adventure is not really an adventure unless there is real danger. The danger is what makes it worthwhile and exciting and, most importantly, it’s what forces you to grow and believe in yourself. If you’re not taking any risks, you’re just on a sort of carnival ride.
There is a lot of value in seeing yourself as capable. When you start your online home based business, think of all the other things you couldn’t do that you attempted and eventually succeeded at. It took time, effort and a willingness to embrace a challenge. Starting a business is no different. You’ll have to learn to really embrace those challenges and to live for those times when you are a bit afraid. Think of fear as a chance to prove yourself. What you’re probably afraid of is failure. If you can get to the point where you’re not afraid of failure and you realize that, from time to time, it will happen, you’ll be ready to become successful on your own terms. Start your own online home based business today, if you delay your decision to start that mean you will delay your rewards.
