“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.” – MAYA ANGELOU
Want to know the secret to real success as an entrepreneur?
Having a strong, emotionally based purpose and mission. Nothing great can truly be created without a real and genuine purpose at its core.
When you start your business, or create a new project, before anything else, you have to figure out your purpose.
Your purpose or mission is the defining statement behind your business. Everything you create for the business will ultimately need to pass through your purpose before you release it into the world, so you need to figure this out first.
- Why do you want to start the biz?
- What are you trying to accomplish?
For most entrepreneurs, purpose stems from the desire to offer something useful to the world around them and to impact others in a meaningful way.
It’s not enough to just say that you want to make boatloads of money, there needs to be a deeper reason to keep you motivated and working hard.
Make no mistake, the biggest differences between those who create amazing things and those who don’t is a fierce commitment to doing whatever it takes to create success, and without an emotionally charged, passionate reason for you to create something and put it out into the world, your chances of success are significantly decreased.
“Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains or even courage but simply because they have never organized their energies around a goal.” — ELBERT HUBBARD ______________________________________________________
