So many of us dream about the business that we want.  The business where we are the CEO and we steer the direction of that business. But, dreaming about something and not taking action is merely, just a dream. We cannot sit and wait for that business to start itself. It needs a living human being to bring it to life. So, what are we waiting for? Why have we not started? What is holding us back? Nothing. Nothing but ourselves. And if we do start, we’d see that there’s much to gain:

  1. You will no longer think about the “what-ifs”

For years, you were plagued with the “what-ifs” of starting your business. What if I fail? What if I lose all my money? What if I lose all respect? What if everyone laughs at me? The list goes on, but hey, being a boss women was never easy. By putting those questions to rest, you will finally find the answers you were looking for. You will finally know what it feels like to start your business venture and go on the roller coaster of being an entrepreneur. 

  1. You will never doubt yourself again 

You need to give yourself some credit. Starting a business and keeping at it even when you feel like you’re losing all hope is difficult. All beginnings are hard, but the journey and that peak of success makes it worth it. Having that belief in yourself when nobody else did or nobody else understood shows great courage and strength. You knew your abilities and you never doubted yourself. You were brave enough to take the plunge and that is commendable. 

  1. You will become more fearless

Having endured so much while starting up a business can make one feel antsy, anxious and a little bit scared. After all, we had an idea that nobody else had and we were willing to act on that idea. Starting out and continuing can be scary. But, having come so far, the worst is over. You have established your brand and reputation and who your target audience is. From here on out, it is uphill and growth. So really, you have become fearless in your pursuit and can now focus on the bigger risks. 

  1. You will wake up every morning feeling lighter

Nothing beats waking up every morning with a sense of feeling accomplished and happy. You no longer trudge around in the past you were in, you are now living in the present moment of your business and planning for its future. You have much more energy, you feel you have a purpose and you are genuinely happier about your circumstances. This is what you envisioned and it has come to life. 

  1. You will know what it feels like to follow your passion

Many times, you sat back and wondered about that one thing that you were passionate about. You wondered what it would be like to follow your passion, to drop everything and consume yourself in it. Well now, after starting your business, you finally know what it feels like to follow your passion. Working on something that you are passionate about feels more like a hobby then a chore, and the best bit is that you make a profit from it. After many long years, you would have finally followed your inner voice and listened to your calling which was your business.
