So many people want to build a successful home business but there are certain things that get in their way. On one hand you’re excited and hopeful about the future, but on the other there’s frustration and anxiety.
Well I’m here to tell you that there are two roadblocks that have without fail stopped more home based business entrepreneurs in their tracks than any others. Some entrepreneurs don’t even realize how these roadblocks are stopping them from achieving home business success.
Those two home business success roadblocks are Perfection and Paralysis analysis.
Here are some quick strategies for crushing these two roadblocks that will help you grow your home based business by leaps and bounds.
Home Business Success Roadblock #1: Perfection
Perfection is a funny thing. We all want to do our best. In today’s world everyone remembers the winner or the person who came in first place. While most people often forget about the person who came in second.
For this reason we always strive to be the best and we should. However, we all want a great product, but in many cases perfection is counterproductive and slows down many entrepreneurs from home business success.
You strive to be the best and have the best, but here’s the deal – If you agonize over every project, decision and situation, it can slow you down from putting out good stuff. This ultimately slows down your progress.
In the end we are after results for our home businesses. Whenever you think about perfection and it is slowing your progress you might want to reframe it by saying, “is what I’m doing moving closer to getting results for my business.”
At the end of the day results are what count. We aren’t paid for our time and punching the clock anymore, like in the J.O.B. world. It’s no longer the mentality that I have to do my job perfect to get that promotion. As home business entrepreneurs we get paid for results.
If you strive to get results often times you’ll learn much more in the process and perfect your work as you put things out; test ideas; course correct and progress in your business.
So that’s the quick way to get over perfection. Whenever you drive yourself crazy over the minor details to get things perfect think to yourself, “am I getting results for my business.” In business it’s about activity, on the internet it’s about getting content out there. So the more you stress out over perfection the fewer things you get out there.
I’ll leave you with a great quote on this subject from a legendary entrepreneur and marketer:
“Good is good enough.” – Dan Kennedy
Home Business Success Roadblock #2: Paralysis Analysis
Don’t get me wrong, it’s important to do your due diligence in business. But so many newly crowned home business entrepreneurs want to know everything before they get started.
I think it’s more important to “get out there.” You want to know enough, but in the end, action is more important than knowledge.
If you over analyze everything sometimes it can lead to you staying stuck in your tracks. It’s so important to take the next step. From there, you have to trust and have faith that you’ll get to the top of the staircase. The truth is, you don’t have to see the top of the staircase to take a single step.
It’s just like driving a car and relying on the GPS navigation system. You may not always know exactly where you’re going, but by driving and having faith that you’ll get there, usually you get to your destination. The same applies here if you want home business success.
So the next time you find yourself frozen in your tracks trying to get all of the knowledge, ask yourself. “Am I taking the first or next step?”
So those are the two road block to home business success and how to crush through them. Practice these strategies inside of your own home business and you can expect unparalleled home business success.
