The dream of being an entrepreneur has never been easier if you’re cut out for it. I’m often asked questions like, “what should I be doing to get started?” “Should I be researching business ideas?” “Should I be writing a business plan?” “What niche should I jump into?”
All of these questions are valid, however…
Start by asking yourself three questions. Now, If I were to ask you these three questions in person, I would ONLY share them with you if you promised to take action. Because if there was any ONE thing that I see lacking with most people who think they want to become wealthy and those who know that they are going to be and that is ACTION.
Three questions an entrepreneur MUST ask themselves to make independence a reality.
1. Are you serious about REALLY living your dream?
2. Are you on the right track to get where you want to be?
3. What can you do today get yourself closer to your dream?
That’s it? You mean that’s all you’re going to give me? C’mon – there has got to be some super-secret recipe that you can share that will start me on my way or ONE thing that will lead me on my path to millions?
Listen to yourself, not others!
One thing that I’ve also learned is that my path (and yours) will be completely different than anybody else. Who I first started blogging I tried to do things exactly as others before me had done and it just doesn’t work. First of all, part of having a blog is to express yourself, share your ideas, your feelings, plus your vision for your blog should come from you other than someone else has done. In my opinion, I’d prefer to share with you what I’ve uncovered to help you create your own AMAZING blog! I want to empower readers not tell them what to do.
Therefore, I highly recommend you plan to work through the ups and downs and persevere until you reach your ultimate goal.
In addition, I learned some time ago that this thing called your “Why” is what gets you going NOT the “How.” There are a ton of books by these so-called gurus that will tell you how to make a zillion dollars writing a blog, or show you how they made millions with affiliate marketing. I love learning how they did it, but it might not necessarily be for me, and some of it is bull—-.
“If your ships doesn’t come in, swim out to meet it.” – Jonathan Winters
Alright, I hear you out there. Please show me something! Do you really want to be an entrepreneur make a million dollars or more? Do you want to learn new business it will, if you are serious, take time to educate yourself and make smart business moves so you can become successful?
For example, lets say your into Real Estate. It is time-tested and proven and a lot of people have made millions because of real estate. Tell me , what’s your HONEST reaction? Was it something like “No kidding, I’m doing that already.”, “Oh, I could never fix toilets at 2:00 AM”, “Should I flip houses, buy and rent?” or was your reaction “Real Estate …nah, too hard.” The truth is real estate has created thousands of millonaires especially over the last 30 years, and personally, I’ve once owned a lot of rental properties, and I’ll probably buy some more real estate because I know how to, but it won’t be my primary focus. So for many people who are interested in real estate as their passion this works! How about you?
Now go back to the three questions above, it is so easy to glance over the questions, but here’s how you do it. Read question number one. “Are you serious about REALLY living your dream?” What is your life like today? Comfortable? Easy? Predictable? For many, the corporate culture creates an environment of “Just below acceptable.” You do a job that isn’t too hard. You make enough to enjoy life. You have a house, a car or two, take a vacation or two a year and that works. After all, everybody else is in the same boat right? So if you ask the question, are you serious? Many people will just say – NO. Because their lives are fine right now. Because of that fact, you can’t move forward – you’re not ready to go on. So while question number one may seem simplistic, it is the hardest question for MOST people to HONESTLY answer yes to.

They cannot mean to plant it, no–
Unless in bitterness to mock
At having cultivated rock.
– Robert Frost
Three simple questions. Three honest answers.
