With the daunting statistic that roughly 80-85% of businesses fail, it is essential that those embarking on a new business possess the right attitude and are realistically prepared for the bumpy road ahead. It is the nature of a small business(sometimes only you)that you will be doing the lion’s share of the work and of course harbor all the stress. And there is a direct corollary between your self-esteem and how it affects your new business venture.
Unfortunately it is a simple fact of life that if you are in charge, those under you will feed off your attitude. If you are overtly negative, lack confidence about your business philosophy, you can be assured that your followers will sense that, and no one wants to work for someone who doesn’t believe in themselves and their business.
If you have your heart set on starting a business, you’ll be far ahead of the game if you can create something that you have an interest in, or is your passion. This is a fool-proof way in which to insure that you will not have any self-esteem issues. Even when you fall on hard times, which you will, you know in your heart that you are going in the right direction and by just “staying the course” and putting in the hours, you will be able to overcome any hurdles laid before you.
You Can Do It
Still it is a good idea to pick the brains of others in the business world. You must find what works and what doesn’t. There are many venues in which to acquire knowledge; books, classes, seminars and talking with those who have run successful small businesses. In the end, nothing builds self-esteem like knowledge. The more you know, the more confident you will become. Also an insatiable curiosity is important too, for once you think you know it all, that’s when you and your business will be in trouble.
Buying the proper materials, such as a computer, HP C8728A, professional attire that fits your business, etc. is important to helping you get your business going.Tags: self esteem, new business
