Are you itching to start your own business? Then listen to this :

  • Visualize your future. Write down the date you expect each of your to be accomplished. And then imagine you're there. When you write out your goals, always use present tense.
  • Stop beating yourself up. We've all set goals we've failed to achieve. It's not the end of the world. Remember, is only truly a failure when you don't learn anything from it. As the gurus say, "Businesses fail; people don't."
  • Make sure your goals are dynamic, not static. Your goals should be evolving; you need to constantly review and refine them. It's OK to change your goals; in fact, to truly grow, it's necessary to make modifications.
