Being an entrepreneur necessitates a great deal of bravery.
It’s all about stepping out into the unknown, repeatedly confronting bewilderment and uncertainty. You may believe you have everything figured out at times. Other times, you may feel baffled and disoriented, unsure of where you’re headed, whether you can continue, or how you got there in the first place. Being an entrepreneur is a roller coaster ride! But give yourself a pat on the shoulder for taking that big step from imagining to taking action. As contradictory as it may sound, confusion leads to clarity, and breaking through to the other end requires hard work and faith. So, suppose you’re confused right now. In that case, if you’re feeling overwhelmed by doubt and anxiety, this article here is to tell you that becoming confused and feeling like you’re on two different roads all the time, whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned entrepreneur, is very normal and here is what they didn’t tell you:
You Could Be Taking The Wrong Advice
Every day, unsolicited entrepreneurial advice is given. Entrepreneurs that are confused should question what they hear. It’s easy to internalize advice without questioning where it came from. It’s easy to exaggerate what others have accomplished while underestimating your own abilities. If someone throws a ball at you, you are not obligated to catch it. They can’t tell you what to do if they don’t know what you desire. The advice may be misplaced.
You have to get off the sofa, do the work, and move past those entrepreneurial hurdles if you want to break through the fog. To end the confusion, you must step outside your comfort zone and become even more mystified. A fresh source of ambiguity… You must act, shake things up, and make some changes in your life! It won’t work to stay in the same place and try to reason your way out. Make a move forward. When you’re not where you would like to be, the only way to get to a better place is to be in motion.
Plan For The Long-Term
Entrepreneurs that are confused should give themselves more time. Make a five-year plan rather than a one-year plan. While planning the rest of 2022, make a vision board for 2023 and 2024. Put all of your brilliant ideas on hold while concentrating on what actually matters. What you choose not to pursue is frequently more important than what you do. Focus on what you’re doing and be proud of your indifference to all the other things you could be doing. If it suits you better, work in phases where you get the ball rolling for each venture, setting aside time for each.
Trust Your Path
To work through being confused by other people’s tracks and acts that have worked for other businesses, or your own desires, you must first understand who you are. At every level of your business, know what you really want and what you represent. Know your mission, your job, your endgame, and the path to get there. Trust your own path.
Whatever happens, always give yourself an A+ for trying.
