How to Succeed, How to Accomplish Great Things in Business!

To make a business successful, you have to write out a plan of how the business will run.  Some individuals believe that business plans are obsolete.  But in reality, you cannot have a business without writing out some plan of action.  It is advisable to seek assistance from others when starting a business.  Before I do anything concerning my business, I seek guidance from God, my mentor, and accountability partners.  Before making any major decisions concerning your business, it is good to create an action plan and put it in writing.  Also, you should pray to God about any major decisions concerning your business.

Nehemiah 2:20, “The God of heaven will give us success…, but as for you, you will have no share in Jerusalem or any claim….to it.”  Not everyone will be happy with you starting your own business.  Many people will try to deter you from reaching your dream of being an entrepreneur.  Sometimes you will be your own worst enemy when it comes to being a small business owner.  Many people mean well, but don’t realize the harm they cause when they try to deter a person from starting a business.  Sometimes due to their own failures at starting a business, family and friends may feel that you will suffer the same fate.  But, you must be prepared for the naysayers when starting a new business.  You cannot allow anyone to stop you from becoming an entrepreneur.

You have to prepare to fight for what you want in life.  You will make a lot of sacrifices to start a business.  You will have to put in the time, the effort, and the money to ensure that your business is successful.  There will be times when you want to give up, but you can’t give up.  You will always have to revise your business plans and business ideas to learn ways to generate income from your business.

Never give up on your dreams to become an entrepreneur because God will never give up on you.
