Money, power, talent, smarts don’t start businesses. People do. Most of them are normal. But they all did one thing first.
They made a decision.
They decided to start a business or at least try to. In their minds and hearts, something happened. They said to themselves they were going to take the first step to start something.
Do you want to start a business, make some extra money, become your own boss?
You can. Start by deciding to do it. Write it down on a piece of paper or in your journal. Say the words to yourself, “I’m going to start my own business.” It’s one of the most powerful things you can do.
Having money, power, etc. can help but isn’t necessary. I know. That’s how I started my company with virtually no capital. It was just me and a dream. Even if you do have a lot of money, without a decision to start, no amount of money will help you.
You see, you are the secret weapon. You are the secret sauce. And you committing to a venture is what makes things happen.
That’s the first step of starting your business. That’s the secret to starting.
You must choose.
