There are some people who want to be in business for themselves, but they keep putting it off. They taking endless classes and courses and are continually studying about entrepreneurship.
That’s because they’re worried that they don’t have clarity they need and they fear they won’t be successful without it. Not jumping in right now and chasing your dreams can be a mistake.
You don’t have to have complete knowledge in every area of business before you begin building it. There are never guarantees. There’s only effort. There’s no way that you can possibly learn every single thing you need to do in business before you do it.
Each thing you encounter can be unique and teach you different lessons on the go.
That’s because there’s theory and then there’s the actual implementation of the task. For example, someone can teach you about self-publishing, but until you’ve successfully uploaded a book, you only have a theoretical knowledge rather than a practical one.
Hands on knowledge can better equip you because some things you learn best by doing. So many people struggle with this and have difficulty with a lack of knowledge or a lack of knowing how to accomplish tasks in business and this frustrates them.
This leads many to believe that they weren’t cut out for being an entrepreneur or that they’re somehow lacking some special quality. Neither of those may be the truth. No one is born an expert at anything.
Everyone must evolve in knowledge. You grow each day and your ability to accomplish things grows with you. The more that you perform a task or handle something, the better at it you get.
It’s how experts are made. So even if, right now you’re struggling in an area of your business because you don’t have the perfect knowledge, that’s not a sign to give up.
It’s a sign to keep going because you will be able to master it eventually simply through repetition and learning.
You might feel that because you’re making so many mistakes, this will never be the case for you. But making mistakes can be a valuable teacher. It can help you see thing you’re doing right as well as things you may be doing that aren’t contributing to your success.
A lack of knowledge isn’t the problem with anyone who wants to be in business. The biggest hindrance is having the wrong mindset. If you think you can’t ever gain clarity, then you won’t.
But if you believe you can and you continue on, you will improve. By forcing yourself to keep trying, even when you don’t feel you have all the answers, you’ll stay on track for success.
