"Nigerians Must Begin To Overcome The Fear Of Becoming An Entrepreneur Now"

Despite all the economic woes and
business/industrial downsizing,
Nigerians are still blindly searching for
jobs as a result of a burning fear in
their minds that whisper failure to
them when ever they think of being creative and do something personal. it
is on this note i decide to write this to
help wash away the fear that is buried
deep within our minds.
"Less than 1% of people have the
courage to face their fears, take risks, create their own businesses, change
their lifestyles and become an
entrepreneur."
Everyone experiences fear in their
lives, even the most successful
entrepreneurs out there. The people who became entrepreneurs have had
to face and overcome their fears
before they became entrepreneurs.
But most people can't overcome this
fear, so they carry on living ordinary
lives working for the boss. even Dangote and otedola suffers such fear
a lot.
Fear can take many forms such as
being afraid to change, being afraid of
the outcome of failure, being afraid of
what others think you are doing etc. Fear also disguises itself as excuses,
for instance 'I'm not ready to start my
own business because I don't have
time'. Underneath this excuse is fear.
I am here to share with you 3 Key
Concepts that will gradually diminish the fear of becoming an entrepreneur. THE VISION CONCEPT Having a Vision of how you want to
live your life as an entrepreneur is a
powerful concept. Creating a vision
first starts with realizing what you
really want your life to be like in the
future. You will start to focus on the thing that is driving you, and this will
be a big part of your Courage and
Motivation to take the leap into
entrepreneurship.
Creating a vision will not only drive
you to achieve what you want, but your fear of achieving it will start to
naturally fade away because there is
no stopping if you have a powerful
vision backing you up. THE BELIEF CONCEPT Having a strong Belief goes hand in
hand with your vision. You can have a
great vision, but if you don't Really
believe in it, you can't be an
entrepreneur.
To really believe in something means that you will continue to pursue your
belief no matter what struggles you
will face to get there, and even more
importantly no matter who tells you
that it can't be done or it's not
possible. A strong belief will not get rid of your
fear completely, but it will allow you to
face it, and overtime your fear of
becoming an entrepreneur will start to
fade away. THE ACTION CONCEPT The last piece of the puzzle is taking
Action.
If you haven't developed a vision and
belief system, then at some point in
time you will give up because your
mind-set is not in the right place. When your mind-set is built up and ready to
go, then it's time to apply yourself as
an entrepreneur.
Once you start taking consistent action
in your life and business, overtime you
will start to see results, your motivation will improve and most
importantly your fear will get to a
point where it seems like it doesn't
even exist anymore.
Remember the 3 Key Concepts 1. Create a Vision of what you want
2. Have the Belief that you can
achieve it
3. Take Action to get there lastly i will conclude with a saying that
i find in almost all inspirational/
motivational, self improvement and
financial books i have read. it was in
"the richest man in babylon, you were
born rich, think and grow rich, greatest sales man in the world, rich
dad poor dad, ziglar's you can reach
the top" and so on. it goes as . . . . . Never Allow The Fear Of Failing
Surpass The Joy/Happiness That
Comes With Succeeding.
