Do you have what it takes to become a fledging Malaysian entrepreneur?
You might know this; entrepreneurship improves the standard of living and creates wealth.
Wealth, out of all the offers in the world, is the most appealing.
Nobody in this world will say no to money, assets or luxury, won’t they?
This has been out and the country is taking initiatives to produce more young entrepreneurs.
These aspiring people are a means to achieve social and economic development.
They are the driving force to the changing market and are responsive to economic trends.
Through them, changes are driven by innovation – creating new products and improving the existing.
As a result, new markets are developed so this guarantees the country’s as well as the world’s sustainable growth and prosperity.
If you’re a youngster interested in businesses or marketing, this is for you.
Here’s what you need to live that dream of being a flourishing young entrepreneur:
Find your passion
In order to be successful, you have to first and foremost, figure out what business you’re passionate about.
What would you be most passionate about in providing; services or products?
What type of services or products?
Whichever you choose to go for, you have to love it to be successful at it.
Dreams are made of passion. If it’s not something you’re aspired after, it’s not a dream.
You’re not going to be all in for it if you don’t love it.
Start with finding your passion and then move on to the next step.
Know your goals
Progressive realisation of a worthy goal or an idea is the key to success.
Goals might be aimed high and seemed impossible, but fixing your gaze on great things will take you there.
It’s important to set out-of-reach goals so you will work hard for it.
Attainable goals needless work and thoughts, leaving you stuck below your real capabilities.
You won’t be able to find your true talent and potential that way.
Aim for international business, instead of national.
This time, we won’t tell you to get comfy! We know that starting a business can be very challenging.
Get out of your comfort zone and move beyond it.
Challenge yourself to do things you’ve never done before.
Engaging in new and different settings expands you through growing and learning.
Stretch yourself beyond your limits.
Do so much more than you know where your capability stands.
Being a Malaysian entrepreneur has more potential than you think, that’s for sure.
Push yourself beyond your own self-imposed limits!
Face your fears
Now you have a goal and you’re ready to challenge yourself and you realize….. you’re afraid.
Read the quote again.
Let’s put it this way: The reason why you SHOULD be doing this is that it scares you.
Do it, you’ll realize what you’re capable of.
Breed your confidence and courage. Don’t sit there and breed doubts and fears.
Do it to conquer your fears.
Thinking itself won’t do much of a help.
Believe in yourself
Self-esteem and motivation don’t come on its own to change your life.
It needs self-belief.
Believe in your own talents and ability.
Believe in yourself that you can, you can, YOU CAN!
You don’t have to be the best in the world to start off.
However, if you keep persisting, you’ll get to the top too!
You can’t be sitting at the dining table and expect the food to pop up in front of you.
Nothing is going to change or happen without actions.
Actions, even the tiniest, are very powerful, so don’t waste any more seconds!
No more waiting for the right time. There is none.
You’ll end up with none if you do.
Decide your direction or pathway and start taking action.
Take it slow if you want, but keep it going. One at a time.
THE WORLD IS OURS!
