purpose

Discover your purpose and start living your dream

The purpose is that feeling that you are a part of something bigger than yourself, that you are needed, and that you have something better ahead to work for. The purpose is what creates true happiness. J. K. Rowling got rejected 12 times before she finally wrote and published Harry Potter. Even Beyoncé had to make hundreds of songs to get Halo.

There is a popular saying about purpose: “When the purpose of something is not known, abuse becomes inevitable”. This quote is so true in every area of life. Some do struggle in life, even when they are talented or gifted in several ways.

How do I discover my purpose?

This is often the question of most individuals trying to find meaning out of life. The truth is that there are steps and guidelines to discovering your area of competence. For example, when people keep appreciating how good you are in certain specific areas, it may be a sign.

Most often, we don’t see our gifts or talents. People around us can help us point us in the direction of our purpose in life. In this case, you need to pay attention and never ignore what others are saying about you.

Another amazing way of knowing where your direction in life lies is to check inward. Take out time and do a soul-searching probe of your inner self. Your heart is the best tool to discover your true purpose and passion in life. Ask yourself some salient questions: what do I love doing for hours without getting bored? What gives me the greatest joy in life? What is my greatest passion?

The greatest successes in life usually come from having the freedom to fail. Ideas don’t come out fully formed, they only become clearer as you work on them. You just have to get started. It is never too late to start living your dream life. All it takes is to discover your true self and start working towards achieving that beautiful dream of yours.

7 Tips for Home Business Start-up Success

Getting a home business up and running takes a whole lot of effort, especially for those who are not so experienced. There are however certain basic principles that you can find useful in helping you achieve your Business Start-up success.

Prepare a realistic business plan.

Think of this as your business road map. Define exactly where you want to achieve with your home business and then you can effectively map out your path towards achieving your goals!

By creating a detailed business plan you should cover all options and eventualities and have a clear future vision that will guide you through the rest of the start-up processes.

Include every little detail in your business plan

Your business plan should encompass the financial considerations of starting your small or home-based business. Ask yourself some real questions:

Do you have the capital required for a start-up?

Will there be a need to raise additional funds?

Who are you going to approach for finance?

Have any plans to approach experts for advice?

And don’t forget to open a business bank account…

Consider the legal implications of becoming a home business owner and proprietor.

Are you better off as a sole trader, a limited company or are you considering a partnership?

Make sure you consider all the angles and protect yourself and your assets personally from the outset. Anything you bring to the business has to be itemized, valued…even if you’re a sole trader. And make sure you are professionally covered with the appropriate legal framework.

Get your family and friends behind you from the onset.

Make sure your family and friends are fully understanding and supportive of your ideas to venture into a home business start-up.

Do they understand the level of commitment you will have to show for on-going and long term success?

Their belief in you and continued support of you will work wonders towards your on-going success, so don’t forget to look out for them too.

success

Success is always intentional

In whatever you do in life, always do something intentional every day to create the success you want and deserve. Success is not accidental, it is intentional. Often, we describe successful people as individuals who have a good job, ride good cars, are happily married with kids, dress cutely, live in their own home, etc.

While to some, when they think of success they imagine wealth, others want power while others want to make a positive impact in life. All these are perfectly valid because success is a concept that means different things to different people but, no matter what success means to you, it is not something that will certainly come easily.

There is no single right way to be successful in life because what works for you might not work for someone else. Success is personal and unique to each individual.  It is the ability to reach your goals in life whatever these goals might be.

 You are the only person who intimately knows what you want to accomplish in life. There are certain achievements and milestones you may wish to attain. It is all about making maximum impact that brings fulfillment to  your life.

Identifying what makes you special and who you truly are is the best you can do for yourself if you want to be successful in life. Stop looking to others for validation that you are on the right track. The first step in your journey to success is to have a clear definition of what success means to you. Knowing your destination will keep you traveling on the right path even when the temptation to go off track comes along.

To be successful, you need to dream big, plan and prepare then put in effort and time. Research and find out what you need to do to achieve your goals in life, then aim to be the very best that you possibly can be based on your concept of accomplishment.

Everyone’s path to great accomplishment is different hence when you are pursuing your goals/ dreams, acknowledge that you might make mistakes and fail. Things will not always go according to your plans. Challenges will come but know that the challenges won’t last forever.

There will be mistakes and failures along the way. Mistakes and failures are the bridges you cross on your way towards success. There would be moments when you feel like the end goal is so far away or the process is different. Don’t worry these circles of discomfort are part of the success package. Acknowledge what you are feeling but don’t let it hold you back.

There are no shortcuts to accomplishing great results in life. A building’s foundations go down before the building goes up. It takes sacrifice, patience, time, a passionate desire to succeed, and a strong will to win. Learn from others’ mistakes and you don’t have to reinvent mistakes that others have already made.

Nobody wakes up to become successful in life. Success is always an intentional act. True success comes from work. You will never become successful if you don’t work towards your goal in life and keep working towards it!!!

Although every entrepreneur is unique and positively endowed in terms of gifts, talents, and abilities, however, some entrepreneurs possess some exceptional qualities which stand them apart from the average business owner. Highlighted below are some of the qualities that can make a difference in the life of an entrepreneur:

Positive Mindset

To succeed in life, one must have the ability to be optimistic. Optimism is the ability to think of possibility even in the face of failure and defeat. A positive minded entrepreneur is always searching for a solution to a problem. This unique quality gives the entrepreneur an edge over the average business owner.

The success of every entrepreneur depends largely on the ability to focus on the essential things in life. It is only when one can focus on life, that one can have the rare ability to concentrate on issues that are key to the attainment of the desired end. This unique characteristic is present in the life of every entrepreneur.

Determination

This is the ability to remain committed to a course or goal. If you are determined, procrastination will never be a problem. Determination is a virtue that keeps a business person on alert. it is like a prime mover in the wheel of the entrepreneur as the ability to venture into areas where others are afraid to go is made available.

Passion

There must be a desire and a burning passion inside of you before you can obtain whatever you need in life. If you are passionate about success, it is a sign that you are on the right track. Having a passion for something will give you the extra energy to continue when others have given up. It is what keeps you awake at night when others are busy sleeping.

One thing that they have going for them, is the ability to implement these creative ideas. Fear of failure does not hinder them from achieving their set goals and desires.
