4 Essential Lessons You Never Learn In Work From 9-5
1. Seeing opportunities
When you’re an entrepreneur, there is absolutely no one to tell you how far you can take your business. It’s all about how great the vision you have and how much you believe it. After some time, you’ll learn that you can make anything happen if you dedicate yourself to it.
Unlike in the 9-5 job, your potential is unrestricted. You can either create a stable base for your business or risk a bit more and see what else is possible. As an entrepreneur, you know that it’s only your choice.
2. Facing your fears
I don’t believe in overnight success stories. More often than not, it’s about hard work. And let’s face it, I know that having own business is much harder work than any 9-5 job can be.
You’re not just learning everything from scratch, testing, and taking risks. But you also have to face your fears or otherwise, they’ll keep stopping you and sabotaging your chances for success. You need to know how to work with your negative thoughts and patterns.
Thus becoming a CEO of your mind first before you can become a potent CEO of your business. Just as relationships, businesses also do reflect your insecurities and limiting beliefs about yourself and money.
But the positive side is that this speeds up your inner growth process. If you look at each challenge as an opportunity to grow, then you’ll get through the hardships much faster, and you’ll gain valuable lessons.
3. Taking responsibility
Didn’t you think that being an adult means being responsible and almost omniscient when you were little? I certainly have. I thought that adults have some secret knowledge of how everything works. Until I became an adult myself and understood that people are equally lost as when they were teenagers.
Most of the people don’t like to have responsibility. It makes sense for the subconscious mind that avoids being judged and made wrong. But if you’re an entrepreneur you’re the only one responsible for what you do. If you want to hide from it, you’ll suffocate your business.
4. Creating your own way of living
When you don’t have to go to the 9-5 job, then you can organize your time whichever way you want. That can be a blessing or a curse. You need to be more organized, consistent, and disciplined.
But if you have those qualities or you learn them then you can create your own way of living. There are no rules. You can take Mondays offs and work Saturdays instead. Or you can build a support team around you so you can focus more on creating the vision. You can also travel whenever you want and make a longer Christmas holiday
Of course, this all depends on the kind of your business, your family commitments, and your revenue but there is more freedom of choice.
