Whenever you find you are procrastinating while attempting to start a new business, you'll know you're not inspired by your business idea. This is a sign you should probably move on to a new business idea. You'll struggle forever trying to start your new business that doesn't inspire you. The resistance you feel is there on purpose, and you feel it for a reason. It's there to help guide you.
When you are starting a business around something you truly love, you'll find you won't procrastinate. Your internal drive to create your new business will prevail. You'll find you're not starting your new business just for the money, but instead you'll be creating your business because it's your current purpose in life. You've been inspired to serve others in your own unique way.
This is what sets successful businesses apart from unsuccessful businesses. The founders of businesses like Apple and Virgin Airlines were/are extremely focused. Starting their business was/is their purpose in life. They had an internal drive to push through all obstacles and offer their personal talents to their clients. I believe we all have our own unique skills and talents.
The difference between the people who have a large impact on the world around them and the people who don't, is their ability to identify their own unique purpose and focus on building a business around it. Building a business is just as much about having a positive impact on the world around you as it is about making money. The two go hand in hand.
As I continue to explore ways to identify my own unique purpose, I'll share with you how you can better find your own. In my opinion, this should be step 1 around starting any business.
Returning to the topic of procrastination, I would like to share a few last thoughts. In the off chance that you are able to fight through your procrastination and somehow succeed at creating your business successfully, you probably won't like it any better than your current job.
When you are creating a business around what is most important to you, that resistance to move forward won't be there. You'll have obstacles, but you'll also have the energy it takes to push through them. Facing the challenges around starting your own business will be an exciting part of your life. It will be the reason you're here, and you'll never procrastinate to take your challenges head on.
Please comment below about your own experiences with procrastination and resistance while building your business. Have you felt inspired by the challenges you have faced along the way?
