Do you dream of being able to quit your day job and work for yourself? Do you wish it could happen sooner than later? Well today, I’m going to show you how to accomplish your dreams of entrepreneurship using your mind, focus and a bit of hard work.
Becoming an entrepreneur is no easy task. But, if you are like me, you welcome the challenge because the rewards are just too great to pass up!
In a day where websites, apps, YouTube and Instagram are helping people become millionaires, why shouldn’t you give it a go?
You can do anything you set your mind to, as the mind is a powerful tool.
Here are the 7 steps you need to take to bring your dreams of entrepreneurship into reality:
1. Dream it.
The most power tool in your body is your mind.
Your mind has the ability to create, control and lead your actions in ways many people clearly don’t quite comprehend.
All thoughts, actions and deeds start in the mind so it is important to nurture it and take care of it consciously.
When you dream at night, that is the one time during a 24 hour day cycle that that your mind is allowed to roam freely. It is the time your mind is free to create.
It’s not thinking about what the next physical task is or what it’s going to feed the body no, during dream state the mind is free to travel and relax.
When you dream at night, you can lead your mind to create and ponder on the thoughts you desire by feeding the mind images and thoughts of prosperity.
Before you go to bed at night, spend 5 – 10 minutes thinking about your goal of entrepreneurship.
Imagine what it would be like to be a thriving, successful entrepreneur.
This little short exercise can lead your mind to dream about the success you seek.
Dreaming about being a successful entrepreneur will lead to greater success during your waking hours.
2: See it.
When you are awake, you still have the ability to dream.
This is called, day dreaming.
You can use day dreaming to your advantage by imagining what your days and nights would be like if you were already a successful entrepreneur.
Imagine what it would feel like to have the money and accomplishments you dream of.
What would you do with your free time? What kind of car would you drive? What does the inside and outside of your home look like?
Visualize these thoughts every day for 5 – 10 minutes before you start your work day, during your lunch break and at night.
Seeing your success as an entrepreneur is a powerful tool you should use to bring your dream into reality.
3. Believe it.
Belief is one the key ingredients you need to achieve just about anything.
If you don’t truly believe you can do something, the mind and body will follow that thought.
To believe something is the same as feeling it.
If you really want to bring your dreams of entrepreneurship into reality…
You need to KNOW and FEEL you can do it.
You must learn to remove all doubts and not succumb to fear.
Have you ever heard the saying, “Seeing is Believing?”
When you SEE yourself as a successful entrepreneur, make sure you also practice feeling and believing you can do it.
If you doubt your own abilities, no one else will believe in you either.
Belief is a must-have if you are going to realize your dreams.
4. Plan it.
There’s nothing easy about being or becoming an entrepreneur.
No matter how talented you are or how much money you do or don’t have, entrepreneurship requires careful planning to work.
Whatever your dream is regarding entrepreneurship, write it down.
Write down, your goals, ideas, costs…
and how you are going to go about executing your plan.
In the business world, this is called a business plan.
Make sure you create a sound business plan that has the ability to work.
Punch holes in your ideas and let other successful business owners critique your business plan.
In addition to your business plan, you need to make sure you spend time quiet time with yourself throughout the day.
When you take bathroom breaks, lunch breaks or are just brushing your teeth in the mirror, THINK about your plan.
Think about how and what you are going to do that day to bring your dream into reality.
5. Do it.
This is where a lot of dreamers fall off.
It takes hard work to realize the dream of entrepreneurship.
In order for your dreams to become real, you need to DO the work that is going to make you successful.
Make sure that you back your goals, plans and dreams with real action.
Your actions are the backbone of your success.
Dreams can only become reality when YOU take the necessary actions that back up your thoughts and beliefs.
Don’t sleep on this part of the puzzle.
Work hard and follow your plan, your success depends on it.
6. Speak it.
Speaking about your dream is another powerful tool.
When you speak about things, you are actually beginning the creation process of your thoughts.
So once, you’ve followed the first 5 steps of: dreaming, seeing, believing, planning and doing; the next step is speaking.
Tell people what your entrepreneurship goals are.
By telling other people what you want to achieve, you are taking responsibility for making your dream happen.
Spend a couple of minutes speaking your dream out loud to yourself.
This exercise is called Affirmation.
Affirmations are super powerful and they help condition your mind for success when done with proper intent.

Achievement is the culmination of successfully doing steps 1 – 6 consistently.
