Those people who merely thought of the idea, and then spoke about it without going any further, may have missed out in a big way. Apart from the opportunity to create larger, previously unimaginable streams of income, there is always the issue of self-worth and pride. It remains a matter of pride for every successful business owner to talk about the trials and challenges, and then rewards of starting up their own businesses and then watching how it grew.
Many of them have gone on to become successful new business developers, not so much on behalf of others but to be part of an even larger business organization with one of a few main objectives in mind. Making a profit. Of course, learning everything you need to know about becoming a business owner, more successful than others, isn’t always about growing the bottom line as far as possible. It takes you back to self-worth and pride.
Running a successful business is about serving the public well, giving them what they need and delivering well, better than average. Average is, in actual fact, passé. Being the best at what you do should always be a standard business objective. Standard? What about exemplary then? A key element of being a successful business owner has to do with doing something that you are truly passionate about.
All good and well that somewhere down the line you are going to be financially successful, but what is it really worth if you are not enjoying what you do. And in any case, this cannot be conducive to running a successful business. The heart must well and truly be in it. And when others see this, they respond in kind.
