Have you been thinking about launching a business so that you can leave your job? Or maybe you have a business already, but are struggling to generate enough business revenue to go full time in your business? If this is you, you’re not alone.
The idea to start a sustainable business whilst stuck in your 9-5 job has been given to you for a reason. The challenges that you are currently facing doesn’t mean that you won’t achieve your goal of having a business. Challenges are a good thing because they help you to grow as a person and to also see how serious you are about going after what you really want.
Believe it or not, but not every woman desire to start a business. They are quite happy travelling to their corporate job each and everyday and they aren’t t really bothered about working long hours or spending limiting time with their family and loved ones. You on the other hand, feel completely different to them. You’re frustrated in your role at work because you know deep down that there is more things that you want to achieve with your life and you know your current role is not going to give you the satisfaction that you so badly crave.
It’s normal to feel scared to take the plunge to leave the job that you have been doing for many years. Especially when your current job is guaranteed to pay you a salary at the end of the month. However, there comes a point in your life when you need to make a firm decision to let go of the safety net of your 9-5 job because launching your business comes with so many benefits that will work in your favour.
For example, you will grow significantly as a person because you will be venturing into territories that you never thought were possible. Not to mention a new-found confidence and inner resilient as you overcome the hurdles that you will face on you journey as you stretch yourself to step into and reach your truest potential.
The downside of you not going after what you really desire is that you will go to your grave without fulfilling your purpose on earth. The late Myles Munroe is famously known for saying that the grave yard is the riches place in earth because so many people die with businesses, songs and dreams inside of them. Not to mention you robbing other people from benefiting from your gift, knowledge and talents. Furthermore, how will you ever know what you are really capable of achieving if you don’t push yourself out of your comfort zone?
If you desire to leave your 9-5 job and go full time in a business that will excite and light you up, make the decision to go beyond the idea of wanting to leave your job and start taking radical action steps to make it happen. The steps don’t have to be massive, it could be something as simple as talking to your spouse or friend about your intention so that you will be held accountable to them.
