1. Not Having A Daily Productivity Goal
Every morning ask yourself what you are going to do today that will drive your business forward.
As an entrepreneur, it is up to you to take action and move forward. If you have never been an entrepreneur before, this is something that may brand new to you. You are now the creator that has to make things happen. This can be a big stumbling block for people in the beginning.
At the end of the day, be really honest with yourself, and ask what you did today that actually moved your business forward. If you focus on this every single day, you will start to see the compounding results of your efforts.
The #1 focus of every entrepreneur should be to make money. Unless you make money, your will not stay in business! You must know the driving force that will continue to make money for your business.
2. Trying To Do Too Many Things At The Same Time
You cannot possibly focus on everything, but you can get good at one thing. If you jump from one thing to another you will simply spin your wheels and not get much done. Master one thing at a time and go on from there.
3. Not Being Clear About Who You Want To Attract
You must speak clearly to your target market and know what they do and don’t want. What problems can you help them solve? When you know exactly what they want, your message will be clear. Always have that image clearly in your mind so you can give them a name and craft a very clear message that will resonate with them.
4. Not Understanding What It Is You Ultimately Do
No matter what business you are in, ultimately you are in the business of one thing only. Solving people’s problems. Whether it is weight loss, network marketing, fitness, stock trading, etc, you are solving a problem for someone. Your product or service is a solution for their problem.
This has to be at the forefront of everything you do in your business. Any kind of marketing communication must come from a position of solving their problem. People don’t want to be sold stuff. They want to buy a solution.
5. Not Managing Your Expectations
You have to expect that you will win and things will go well for you, but also be prepared for failure. Understand exactly what you must do to get the results and numbers needed for your success. Dig into the numbers so you know just what you have to generate to get that success.
Overcoming these roadblocks to success start with your mindset. Keeping the right mindset and consistent, persistent action will clear these roadblocks and set you on the right track, moving forward.
