There are a lot of reasons people choose to become entrepreneurs rather than stick with (or enter) the corporate world. Sometimes we have to ditch the day job to stay home and take care of young children or aging parents, and so we look for a job that lets us work odd hours.
higher level – to step into more. But that can be easier said than done, so let’s look at some strategies you can use if you’ve been wondering how to reach your full potential as an entrepreneur.
Focus on Your Why
One of the biggest reasons people working corporate jobs are so unmotivated is because it doesn’t align with their purpose. By contrast, entrepreneurs who are doing something they love are constantly looking for ways to do more, not just because they love their job, but because they’re aligned with their purpose.
To be clear, “do more” does not mean working 24/7. It means finding more ways to be of service, whether that means launching a new product or service, or finding an innovative way to serve your audience.
Delegate to Reach Your Full Potential
Automate to Reach Your Full Potential
Today’s technology can do so much for you, and yet too many entrepreneurs are either afraid to take advantage of it, or just don’t know all the advantages technology has to offer. For example, instead of logging the same expense in your bookkeeping software every month, why not make it a recurring expense so the software automatically logs it every month and you can spend that time doing what you do best?
Or scheduling software that lets people schedule a meeting with you with a few clicks, then automatically sends them a follow-up email after the meeting? These are all things that need to get done for your business, but if they can get done automatically, that frees you up to focus on achieving your full potential.
Get Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable to Reach Your Full Potential
Reaching your full potential requires you to grow, and growth is never comfortable. If you decide to keep doing the things you’ve always been doing and never try any new strategies for growing your business (or yourself), you’ll never reach your full potential.
There are times when it makes sense to listen to your gut when it tells you not to do something, but sometimes that’s just fear holding you back. One of the keys to reaching your full potential is to learn the difference between a warning you should heed and an indication you’re about to step up to the next level.
