In life or business if we are not getting the results we desire, we can get bored. The problem for entrepreneurs is that boredom can sabotage your efforts for success.
The Harsh Reality – Success Isn’t Achieved Overnight
It doesn’t make a great deal of difference what business you are in or would like to start, it takes time and effort, usually a good deal of it, to finally reach the plateau you desire. If you give up with the first hint of negativity or first sign of boredom, you aren’t giving yourself or your new business, a fair chance.
Expect that all will not be perfect starting out. Devise a plan to increase stimulation when times are mundane and you feel like no progress is being made on your journey to success. It might not be that no progress is being made and just the time it takes to get to your goal.
Work on other aspects of your business, such as market research, learning new skills or making connections with other entrepreneurs when you are feeling boredom is setting in. Learning new skills is an excellent way to get moving, particularly if you feel stuck and itching to see progress.
Select a Challenging Niche
Intelligent people don’t do well at a boring job of repetitive tasks day in and day out. They will quickly lose interest. Thus, they want to move on to a new more exciting experience out of sheer boredom.
The way to avoid this is to think long and hard about what you want to actually achieve when setting out on your new career. Choose something that will challenge you. We don’t always know this early in life.
Many of us will experiment with a multitude of jobs and fields before we find one that catches, and maintains, our interest. Whatever we choose, it definitely needs to challenge us to develop our current skills, learn new skills, or invoke creative thinking to attain success. If you find the right one, chances are you won’t get bored along the way and success will be forthcoming.
Create a Network of People Who Can Help
We should be somewhat familiar with what we are hoping to accomplish, but we won’t know everything. We need to surround ourselves with positive-thinking people who are somewhat intelligent in entrepreneurial enterprise, and even better if they are in your particular area of business.
We need people we can trust to discuss the bigger decisions with, get advice on what works and what doesn’t, and build a network of like-minded people with similar goals. We need a network of people who will be pulling for us and keeping us motivated. They know what it’s like to stand in our shoes, and their input is very valuable.
It also helps to not get bored if you can talk to ‘like-minded go-getting positive’ people, as you definitely don’t want boredom to rear it’s ugly head and sabotage your success!
