Several people leave their personal success in the hands of other people. It may work for you but you have to face the fact the real winners and the real people who are successful are people who are in control of their financial future. This means that you and you alone should be in control. You shouldn’t be too dependent on other people to make you successful.
It’s frustrating to think about so many people leaving their success for other people to decide. It can be your spouse, friends, parents, or it can even be your boss. If you want to realize your dreams and become successful, then you have to have the power to decide on your own life and stop relying on other people for your success.
When you think about it, you don’t have all the power. For example, if you have a job, then your boss has the power. He or she is responsible for getting you hired, he or she can choose to fire you, promote or demote you, and he or she can also give you that raise that you always wanted to get. And, to top it all off, it doesn’t matter how hard you work for them as getting raises and promotions isn’t just about the performance you give to your boss’s company.
So, don’t work for your boss but work for yourself. This is the only way for you to be completely in control of your bank account.
Sadly, many people also get held back by their spouses. They can try to discourage you and talk you out of starting your own business. If you are sure the business you plan putting up will be a success, and then take the risk. Always remember that you can’t be successful without taking any risks. So, try to convince your spouse that starting a business is the way for the family to live the life that you have always dreamed about.
Your friends can hold you back from success too. They will often have negative comments about starting a business just because it is risky. So, they may even try to talk you out of it or even make fun of you. However, you have to remember the decisions you make are for your own good. What you do is what’s best for you. Don’t let anyone hold you back. Just remember that you should also try to listen to advice but don’t let anything negative affect your decisions.
