Being reluctant in initiatives is very natural. The key to self-employment exists in thought-provoking self-assessment, self-reflection, and Self-portraits. It’s good to have an interest in ideas of starting something own, which can be monetized by offering the right service or product to reach an ultimate vision.
Self-employment or entrepreneur can be risky and challenging with less clear possibilities. You need to deal with the risk of uncertainty, inconsistent income at the start and maybe need to put a lot of extra time before your business actually kickoff. A mindset of learning more can play an important part in decision-making and self-employment.
The bright side of being self-employed or an entrepreneur is freedom, color, and rewards to grow. The more effort you put the more you grow your business. Self-employment gives more happiness, directive, and control. You can maintain your own schedules and this can help you to prioritize your activities.
Instead of Traditional Employment, Self-employment is really a different dream, trajectory, and journey in life with a larger picture of influence, purpose, and challenge, which needs a lot of administrative emotions and energy to avoid or manage risk, need comprehensive knowledge base and skill set, a strong jumpstart and serious research. Here one has to have convert weaknesses into strengths for long-term goals, survival, and sustainability.
The most important factor of successful entrepreneurship is “Action Planning” which is a combination of knowledge, experiences, methods, and goals. Developing an action plan opens up the mind to move forward towards the fulfillment of the goals, includes of setting the main goal, naming goals, progress milestones, setting actions, steps and deadlines to reach them with accountability.
There may be some variations in actions and deadlines, which is quite obvious, that needs continuous identification of struck spots, obstacles, mistakes, and re-planning. Self-Employment is not a shortcut but a long way to go.
