5 Beliefs That Keep You from Attacking Your Goals
Everyone has dreams, but not everyone makes their dreams into goals. You may have a few of these too. What are the reasons you tell yourself late at night to put the shutdown on making them a reality? These reasons are beliefs that you have, but that doesn’t mean they are valid reasons for not experiencing goal achievement.
1. Not Enough Time
Everyone is busy these days. When someone asks how you are doing, you probably respond with “Busy.” But that might not be the truth. Everyone has the same twenty-four hours in the day. For a week or maybe two, keep a time ladder of how you spent your time. This includes sleeping, preparing and eating meals, social media, getting ready for work, cleaning your house. Take a good look at how your time is spent, and you might realize you have more time than you realize.
2. I Don’t Have ‘X’ Talent
It doesn’t matter if you want to write a book or paint a picture, you have as much talent as you are willing to work for. You may not have been born with the natural ability to paint, it doesn’t mean you can’t learn and practice.
3. After ‘X’ I Will Do It
“Once I get through this (insert tough project at work), I will start training for that marathon.” “After I lose twenty pounds, I will take a salsa dancing class.” Why are you waiting? Maybe that marathon training will help you work through the stress of that project at work. Perhaps salsa dancing lessons will allow you realize that no matter your weight, your body is worthy of fun and sexy movement. If you have a goal, go for it now.
4. I’m Not Good Enough
What ruler are you using to measure your “good enough”? You are always good enough to go after your own dreams and goals. If this is an internal dialogue, then you need to work on liking and loving yourself first. If this belief is coming from external sources, then consider those sources and if they are holding you back.
5. ‘X’ Person Has it Easier
The grass is greener where you water it. Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes. There are many sayings that sum up that you really don’t know what someone else is going through. So do not assume that someone has it easier, and therefore can achieve their goals while you cannot. That person may think you have it easier or better.
Self-limiting beliefs can be a slippery slope especially when it comes to goal achievement. They can also keep you from even trying to reach your goals. Take time to examine your reasoning and come up with better beliefs to counter the negative ones.

Solo entrepreneurship is an adventure. You get to choose what you’ll do for work, and you get to work for yourself. You know exactly what your business is doing because you are in charge. But did you know that solo entrepreneurship can also lead to greater personal growth? People are always wanting their business to grow and develop and solo entrepreneurship can lead to just that and, that in turn, can lead to your personal growth.

It Forces Growth

One way that solo entrepreneurship leads to greater personal growth is by forcing growth. By overseeing a business by yourself, you must make the decisions. If your business doesn’t succeed, then it’s on your head. If your business succeeds, then it succeeds solely based on your decisions. That doesn’t mean that you won’t face challenges. In fact, you will face many challenges that you will have to handle by yourself. But facing those decisions is what allows you and your business to grow.  The bigger the challenge you overcome the greater the growth.

More Control Over Finances

As a solo entrepreneur, you will also have more control over your finances. You don’t have to rely on anyone else to oversee decisions about where the money goes. You can take out a loan if you know you need to. You can also open your own retirement plan. To open a solo 401(k), you need to register for an employer identification number (EIN). It may be different than what you’re used to at first, but the freedom to govern your own finances for your business will help you grow in the long run.

Setting Goals

Another thing that solo entrepreneurship aids with is setting goals. Setting goals is an important part of personal growth. As a business, you’ll want to expand your reach, and set goals for products that you make, and how many of them you sell. You’ll want to make marketing goals, customer relation goals, and many other types of goals to help your business grow. These goals will not only help your business grow, but they will force you to strive for something that may be outside your comfort zone. These goals can help you in your personal development.

As a solo entrepreneur, your future is in your hands, but it is up to you to shape that future. The decisions you make with your business can not only lead to the growth of your business, but your own personal growth.
