What do all successful business owners have? I want to share with you the three most important things. One, all successful business owners have an expertise or a passion and an area where they want to work in that they’re excited about and expertise might grow with time. You can start out having some expertise that might be around health and well-being, it might be around self-care, it might be around business, a natural product. All successful business owners have that expertise or passion about what they want to do in business.
The second thing that they have which I think is really important is themselves. You have yourself, you are the only one of you. You are unique and that’s what people love about you. They love lots of things about you, but it’s because of your uniqueness. You don’t have to be the same as everybody else and if you look at successful business owners, they’re very individual, they don’t try to be somebody else. They are just true to themselves, they stand firm in their beliefs and their values, and they don’t change anything about themselves. That’s really empowering when you’re in business to know that you’re authentic, you’re congruent and you stand firm in what you believe in.
The third thing is, they have faith. They have faith that their business will work. They have faith that their business will last long-term. They have faith that they will have challenges that they will overcome. They always believe that this too shall pass and we’re all having challenges in our businesses and our lives right now, but it’s all different, it’s all unique for each of us.
Even though it may seem similar, we go through different stages of challenges at unique times but how to come out of these challenges at the other end is to rely on these three things, rely on yourself that you have the expertise and passion around the basis of your business. Two, that you have yourself, everything you need right now is inside of you. You have all the resources that you need to make sure that you are a success and thirdly, have faith. Have faith that your business will grow, have faith that the customers will come back to you. Whatever it is you need, place that faith right there, smack bang in front of it, and it will happen for you. If you want to be a successful business owner, place your focus on those three things and I’m telling you, things will change for you.
