Online Home Based Business Fear?

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.

Online Home Based Business and Personal Development

Online Home Based Business and Personal Development

Starting an online home based business may be new to you, but there are plenty of people who have been there before. Some of them have become really successful and have decided to share their experiences in books. Reading about how other people made their online home based business ventures succeed can be inspiring but, as an entrepreneur, you have to read for more than inspiration. You also have to know about what made those people who have enjoyed success find their way beyond what made them feel inspired. Inspiration, however, does have its place.

Reading and Learning to Grow Your Online Home Based Business

Online home based businessOne of the books you may want to consider reading is The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz. This book has to do with how your thoughts influence your success. This concept is not new to anyone in business, but Schwartz does a good job of breaking it down and explaining how thought patterns may have a role in the success or failure of anyone running their own online home based business.

Who Moved My Cheese by Dr. Spencer Johnson is another book that a lot of entrepreneurs who own an online home based business find indispensable. This book has been consistently popular because it deals with the only thing that does remain consistent throughout life: change. The book gives you insight on how to deal with the fact that things will change and how to let this distress flow off of your back or how to embrace it and make something of it. This book has been consistently popular with business people within organization and with entrepreneurs and deserves a read from anyone considering starting their own online home based business.

Felling Stuck with Your Online Home Based Business?

It’s a good idea to read when you’re at one of those points when you don’t know where to go with your online home based business. Everyone has this happen and entrepreneurs have to deal with the fact that they don’t always know what to do when something becomes more challenging than they anticipated. Dealing with challenges, keeping a positive outlook, dealing with change and being ready to embrace it are part and parcel of success for any businessperson.

Sometimes, things will happen to business people that have nothing to do with their efforts or abilities. One author who put a lot of thought into this is Nassim Nicholas Taleb and his book Fooled by Randomness has been a big hit with the business community. It’s another one you may want to pick up, especially when you’re discouraged.

Between having good books to keep you motivated and having the willingness to consider whether or not your current view of the world is realistic and productive, you can make your online home based business go farther. This is because you’ll have a mindset that is ready to embrace challenges, to cope with defeats and to make sure that you don’t consider yourself entitled to success. Take a look at The Magic of Thinking Big to learn about positive attitudes, at Who Moved My Cheese to learn about dealing with change and Fooled by Randomness to learn about dealing with the tough situations that sometimes just happen to everyone.
