Do you ever wonder what separates highly successful entrepreneurs from the average person? Is there a secret to entrepreneurial success?
Why does one artist sells more art than another, even if they have a similar style?
The Secret For Entrepreneurial Success
There are a few key components that I want to share with you that are essential to attain the kind of success you’re striving for.
Now you probably think this is another article about passion. It’s not. Passion is good; however, it isn’t enough.
Passion is good; however, it isn’t enough.
Passion has to lead to something more.
Passion has to lead to action.
If you have passion but do not act on it all you have is a dream.
When you take action on your passion you are setting goals. Once you have set goals to reach your vision you are becoming committed and disciplined. That is the magic potion, the special ingredient, the secret to entrepreneurial success.
Passion, vision, goals, commitment, and discipline are the key ingredients for entrepreneurial success.
Before a person can be totally committed to starting a project, you must have a passion or a need to accomplish a project.
What is your passion?
Why do you want to sell art online?
Why do you create art?
Your passion will be your fuel, your drive, and your motivation.
Take some time to think about:
Why do you love what you do?
Why is it the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning?
Why is it the last thing you think about before you close your eyes to end the day?
All of the information you gather will be your story and a large part of your Content Marketing Plan.Your passion will be your fuel, your drive, and your motivation. @NevueArtClick To Tweet
Where would you like to be in five years?
What do you see yourself doing in ten years?
What would be your perfect story?
If you asked one hundred entrepreneurial’s, “Where will your business be in five years?” They would all have a clear picture as if it was already a reality.
A vision and a goal are similar but different. A goal is a documented plan. Your vision is what will help you develop a strategy.
Commitment is defined as:
The act of committing, pledging or engaging oneself
A pledge or promise; obligation: we have made a commitment to pay our bills on time
Engagement; involvement: you have a sincere commitment to something.
Commitment comes from having a focus on what you want to accomplish and the means to see it through despite any obstacles, challenges or hurdles you must overcome to get there.
Commitment can exist because you have a passion for your art and goals. However, commitment can also come because you have no other alternative. Often, people are committed to a goal because they must succeed, there’s simply no other option but to see it through.
The commitment will help you get through the difficult parts of owning an art business. It’ll motivate you to enhance your strengths and to improve your weaknesses. It’ll help you strive for excellence and continue pushing to grow and prosper.
Commitment, however, isn’t a stand-alone quality. You can have the commitment to success, but only when it is paired with discipline do you have a winning combination.Passion, vision, goals, commitment, and discipline are the key ingredients for entrepreneurial success.Click To Tweet
Discipline is defined as:
Activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops or improves a skill; training
The rigor or training effect of experience, adversity, etc
Behavior in accord with rules of conduct; behavior and order maintained by training and control.
Discipline is getting on the treadmill every day because you want to lose those last four pounds even though you dislike running on the treadmill.
Discipline is working on those business-building projects you dislike because you know it’ll get you where you want to go. Discipline is the action part of the commitment and discipline equation.
Is it possible to cultivate commitment and discipline?
Acknowledging that commitment and discipline are required to achieve significant success is easy enough, but embracing commitment and discipline as part of your personality, philosophy, and way of life is a bit trickier.
The reason experts and coaches often talk about passion is that with the passion for your business, goal, and industry, commitment and discipline almost fall into place.
When you enjoy what you’re doing, being committed to success and disciplined to accomplish the tasks to see it through are much easier – in fact, they’re almost effortless.
However, when you don’t feel passion and joy for your business, commitment and discipline are a struggle. They’re like getting on that treadmill; you have to force yourself to do it.
You can, of course, take steps to find other things to motivate yourself like money, prestige, and freedom. But, it won’t be nearly as fun as if you have a passion for what you do.
You can achieve everything you dream of. The question is how bad do you want it? Are you willing to put in the time and effort?
The Secret For Entrepreneurial Success is passion, vision, commitment, and discipline. Everyone who is successful is just like you. The people who reach the top live these four qualities every day.
