It is true that opportunities and chances don’t last very long, but it is also true that there will always be new opportunities and chances for you to take action.
However, while real entrepreneurs aim for long-term results, most people want instant results and therefore, they look for chances that will make them fast money known as “get-rich-quick-scheme”…
And this is where they get it all wrong because there is no such thing as “get-rich-quick” unless you won the lottery as well, and if there is, it could be a fraud scheme based on my experiences with many businesses that I have encountered for the past decade.
Yes, I have had over 9+ business in total, and I made a lot of money in most of them, but a few did “fail” and I manage to sell it for a good price.
If you think being an entrepreneur is risky, try working for someone else for 40 years. – Warren Buffett
I actually kept the ones that make me the most money like passive income every day, and the sold the ones that made me the least money.
So based on my own experience, you have to look for opportunities that will gain long-term results and not instant results because you might be looking into an illegal scheme and if it does exist, it won’t last because again, most of the times it is a fraud.
PRO-TIP: Don’t let the toxic mixture of fear and laziness fuck with your goals, ambition and productivity.
But first of all, here’s how you know if you be an entrepreneur;
- You can’t have a boss.
- You’re highly ambitious
- You get bored easily
- You want freedom
- You’re too creative
- You have a “nothing to lose” mentality
If all of these are checked, then now let me share with you some of the things that you should know!
Pt. 1 – How to Look For Opportunities in Business?
The very first step you must know is that success is about more than just “making money”.
Most people get into business for only that reason, and in most cases about 99% of the time, they fail and actually lose all of their money…
It is mostly all about passion to want to make a difference in the lives of people or to make the world a better place!
Stop creating a life that you need a vacation from. Instead move to where you want to live, do what you want to do, start what you want to start and create the life you want today. This isn’t rehearsal people. This is YOUR life. – Dale Patridge
However, I can’t tell you exactly what type of opportunity to look for or what type of bussiness to get into since ONLY you know what you’re truly passionate about, and that could be anything!
Just so you know, you first don’t have to be an “expert” or “talented” but only need to have the motivational confident mentality of a successful person and are willing to put in massive hours until you achieve success.
Life is about evolving. Don’t stay in a situation that’s not helping you grow mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
That means failure, giving up and quitting is not an option, and that you will do whatever it takes to succeed regardless of any challenges or whatever.
You’re 100% confident with an unbreakable faith (certainly) that this will work and you don’t care about anyone else’s opinion!
And when you get into business with this type of mentality of a true entrepreneur, then you’ll notice that “money” is not a big deal but of course, as you get into making that business be a success, the money will follow and you’ll earn a lot of money over time.
Now don’t expect instant results, which it could take at least 6 months to notice anything based on my own experiences.
I don’t have the time but I made time. I didn’t have the knowledge but I kept learning and did what I knew. I didn’t have support but I learned to support myself. I didn’t have the confidence but the confidence came with results. I have a lot going against me but I had enough going for me. I have plenty of excuses but I chose not to use any of them.
Sure, it could come faster than that but in most cases, it does take time and if you don’t quit or give up, then sooner or later, the results MUST come to you at all costs.
It is the law of universal known as the Law of Attraction!
But in order to look for the right opportunities in business, you must look into for the long-term and I’m talking about at least 10 years from now.
Imagine that business in 10 years from today’s date, will you still have it? Will you still look forward to achieving more success than ever? Are you willing to keep taking action as if you were today?
That’s the kind of questions you have to ask yourself!
Every successful person has a painful story. Every painful story had a successful ending. Accept the pain and get ready for success.
And if the answer is a NO, then don’t do it because you’re most likely going to give up, not willing to invest and put in the hours needed, and so on…
But if the answer is a YES which you can see yourself working hard in 10 years from now, then go ahead and take the risk and go for the chance since you would not regret it!
Just so you know, myself as part of the 1% of the population who is the most of the highest successful people have always looked for long-term results because we know that the long-term is where the wealth/fortune exists.
You have sole ownership of your vision. And the Universe will give you what you want within your vision. What happens with most people is that they muddy their vision with “reality”, Their vision becomes full of not only what they want but what everybody else thinks about what they want, too. Your work is to clarify and purify your vision so that the vibration that you are offering can then be answered. – Esther Hicks
Pt 2 – How to Take Action When You Find the Business/Opportunity You Want?
This is where a lot of people are not willing to do, which is to take action and put in massive amounts of hours in that business/opportunity.
It is true that your life right now is a result of what you did a year ago. And your life a year from now will be a result of what you do right now.
And that is why it super important to act accordingly, but I’m not saying taking small action with little steps but big action like you’re willing to put as many hours necessary to make that business as successful as it can be.
Everyone is ready to win, but only a few are prepared.
This means, even if you already do have a job known as ‘Just Over Broke’, you can still put in a lot of hours and that is if you get out of work at 5 pm, then you have the rest of the day to hustle, learn since the more you learn, the more you earn and take action on that new opportunity that you want.
That means, go home and work your butt off which is called ‘side hustle’!
Don’t go home and watch tv/Netflix and basically just hang around and maybe put in an hour or so, and expect your new opportunity/business to become a success.
No, it would never work like that!
Set a goal that makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning.
Just so you know, the Universe/Source/God does not give big rewards to someone who is just “good” at what they’re doing, but mostly to a person who’s great will always have more than enough!
Look around at the most successful athletes, businessmen, etc, they all had to put in massive amounts of workflow to be at where they are currently at!
For example; Floyd Mayweather, Conor McGregor, Cristiano Ronaldo, etc all of them do practice a lot on a daily basis and I’m talking about years of hard work to become a success!
Never be satisfied, always look for improvements. Life is about getting better every single day.
Successful actors have had many acting classes, singers also have practice singing a lot, and basically every other successful person in this world!
Me, there was a time that I would wake up at 4 am and start at 5 am for every single day all the way to 8-9 pm and basically did every possible thing to be the successful/wealthy person that I am today.
And guess what? I am still putting in these hours, nothing has changed because I am passionate about what I do and I love it so much that it doesn’t even feel like “work” but a hobby to me that I truly enjoy!
Of course, in today’s date and age, I don’t work as hard as I did like including Saturday and Sundays, but on the weekdays and every other day, I’m up at 5 am, and do what I do early in the morning and start workflow at 7:30 am and stop at 5 pm!
The rest is history…
There’s no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent doesn’t not “exist”, we are all human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top, and that’s that. I am not talented, I am obsessed. – Conor McGregor (UFC Champion)
So in my opinion, look for ways to be GREAT and do your all-time best and the only way is through repetition by working extremely hard, then life itself will reward you big time.
Don’t get addicted to comfort. If you allow yourself to stay in your comfort zone, it acts like a drug & you become addicted to it. Many people actually fail to realize their purpose & passion all because they let comfort get the best of them. IF YOU WANT SUCCESS, GET OUT OF THE COMFORT ZONE NOW!
Pt. 3 – How to Have the Mindset of a True Entrepreneur?
Now, this last part should actually be the #1 part or maybe the second part of this post!
But I refused for many reasons and I’m going to tell you why.
Yes, our mentality and mindset have to be on top-notch when being an entrepreneur but a lot of people get this wrong because even if you have a successful mindset, you still have to put in those hours of workflow!
You can’t sit around with a positive mentality and expecting success to come by without you doing anything… Nope, it just won’t work!
Imagine your mind is like a garden and your thoughts are the seeds. You get to choose what seeds you plant in your garden. You can play seeds of positivity, love and abundance. Or you can plant seeds of negativity, fear and shame. You can spend time trying to take care of everyone’s garden. Or you can work on making yours beautiful and attract other beautiful people into your garden. What seeds are you planting?
The only way that this will work is if you already have a successful business or have several investments like me and get passive income why you sleep, meaning you don’t have to there at the business to earn money.
The stock market is a device for transferring money from the impatient to the patient. – Warren Buffett
Can you see what I’m saying here?
That means I could just sit around and see the all the passive money coming in from every direction effortlessly, unexpectedly and expectedly, but that’s not enough for me!
My goal is to make at least $1 million a day off my business and investments, and the only way to reach this milestone is to keep doing what I’m doing by working extremely hard!
Now you may be thinking that this a lot of money, but it’s definitely not…
And this where your mentality comes into play! It is you and your mindset that put a limit or looks at the number is a big number or a small number!
If you have been brought up to believe that being wealthy is not spiritual, then I highly recommend you read the Millionaire of the Bible Series by Catherine Ponder. In these glorious books you will discover that Abraham, Issac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, and Jesus were not only prosperity teachers, but also millionaires themselves, with more affluent lifestyles than many present-day millionaires could conceive of. – The Secret
Just so you know, one of the greatest investors of all time, Warren Buffet (billionaire) once said in an interview that “$462 million is not much money“…
Yes, that’s the type of growth mindset that you also need for success and wealth!
Wealth flows from energy and ideas.
But I’m not talking about just in terms of limiting money, but overall growth mentality!
The growth/creator mindset that you need is to;
- Be motivated, inspired, and passionate of what you’re doing
- ACT like a successful entrepreneur regardless if you’re not now
- Have gratitude feelings, thoughts and beliefs on a daily basis
- Look forward to more results and don’t accept any other option
- Be a leader in all areas of your life who embraces challenges
- Take responsibility for everything including all of your choices
- Build healthy habits/behaviors and have a healthy routine
- Don’t try to compete or compare with anyone but do your best
- Not living off that survival/victimize selfness or victim life
- Of course, have a patient mindset – Calm/relaxed through meditation
- Look forward to ONLY helping out people/customers – Not the opposite
- See ONLY the good side of all things to make great decisions
- Look for ways to always learn something new – Knowledge is power
- Embrace challenges, failures, risks/chances since it’s part of the success
- Follow the Law of Attraction to achieve faster successes
- Open your third-eye, connect with your higher-self to follow intuition
- Be creative and open-minded – Look outside the box all the time
- Giving up, quitting, or not wanting to work is NOT an option
- Expect ONLY the good things – Think of ONLY what you want
- Give back to the Universe by either money (donation) or value
- Work extremely hard – Put in all those hours/months of work, etc
You gotta step out of your comfort zone, be broke for a while. Lose some friends. Have some sleepless nights. Most people don’t get it though.
Now, these are not all of them, but as you move on in life, you’ll find out and get it right!
Therefore, this is the type of mentality and mindset that most entrepreneur has and is also needed to gain massive success in business.
Don’t give up, life can go from 0 to 100 real quick.
But of course, you need to be patient since it could take months to years to actually see a great number of results based on my experiences.
If you don’t know, Coca Cola made only about $1000 their first year back in the day, but look at where it’s at today, which is probably the first or second most consumed beverage drink in today’s date and age.
Success needs time, bro!
At the end of the day, remind yourself that you did the best you could today, and that is good enough. – Lori Deschene
Bottom Line Conclusion of Entrepreneurship
So get those 3 parts right and you’re on your way to make that opportunity or business in the right direction for success!
Other than that, if you miss either part of what I mentioned above, then you’ll be looking to fail.
I mean, someone else’s concept could be different from mines here, but this is what worked for me for the past decade to be so successful and have so much wealth!
Hard work puts you where good luck can find you.
So here are six things mentally strong people do;
- They move on. They don’t waste time feeling sorry for themselves.
- They embrace change. They welcome challenges.
- They stay happy. They don’t waste energy on things they can’t control.
- They are kind, fair, and unfair to speak up.
- They are willing to take calculated risks.
- They celebrate other people’s success. They don’t resent that success.
That means if you miss part 3, which is the mindset, then you’ll only work extremely hard but not get the results you want like the rest of the population because success is actually 80% mindset, 20% strategy.
And again, if you miss part 2 which is taking massive action, then nothing will happen and you won’t move any further in life unless you already have a successful business or investments.
No matter what your current circumstances are, if you can imagine something better for yourself, you can create it.
Of course, part 1 is truly the most important part based on my experience because passion is everything and you must aim for long-term results, not instant known as “get-rich-quick-scheme” since those don’t even exist!
The strongest people aren’t always the people who win, but the people who don’t give up when they lose.
If you don’t like what you’re doing, then success or prosperity will not come to you! It only comes to those who love it and is great at what they’re doing.
Which also means, I don’t believe in the “chase money” phase because the moment you chase something, that means it’s running away from you.
Always remember that the future comes one day at a time. – Dean Acheson
What I believe is that money is most likely attracted, not pursued!
Check that out because money is not just a piece of paper like most of the population thinks, it is actually way more than that!
And if you don’t know, health is wealth!
If your health or wellness is not on point, then is no point in being rich in my opinion.
So look at this post here as well!
And here are some goals that you should look into before the age of 30;
- Wake up early everyday.
- Exercise for 1 hour everyday.
- Read 2 books/month.
- Pay off all debt.
- Start your own business.
- Save at least $1k per month.
