As an entrepreneur or a potential entrepreneur, these are 10 sacrifices you need to consider to have and boast of firm grounds.
AVOID BEING MATERIALISTIC.
There is this believe that the more big phones, dresses, flashy cars etc you have makes you a real man or woman. This is a fallacy. It is good to own these luxuries but should be purchased by your means and at the appropriate time. You can’t use your capital for business to buy these luxuries and think you will ever succeed, move forward or expand your business.
Womanizing can actually kill your dream and collapse your business as an entrepreneur. This is because all your attention is diverted to women making you have little or no time for your business or investment. Your business begins to flop because you don’t put into enough cognitive knowledge on how to expand it and make it successful. Rather, you pay attention to women who will at the end of the day drain lots of money from you because womanizing is expensive!.
PICK YOUR LIFE PARTNER.
Pick a life partner that buys into your dreams and aspirations and understand how your expenditure life will be like. It is not being recommended to stay stingy in your relationship with your partner but rather enjoy life together in a feasible way. There’s more to enjoy when your dreams are finally actualized so there’s no need to rush.
AVOID PARTYING AND EXCESSIVE DRINKING.
You need to enjoy life doesn’t means you should waste your capital on parties and excessive drinking. This won’t help out. The journey of entrepreneurship is not a joking matter and hence you need to trade one thing for another. The choice is in your hands.
DEDICATE TIME FOR YOUR GOD.
Dedicating time for your God is a very essential practice every entrepreneur and potential entrepreneur must do. Everyone has his or her believe system , be it Christianity, Islamic or Traditional religion. Call on your God to protect and make your business or businesses successful.
CONTROL YOUR PERSONAL EXPENDITURE.
Have a limited amount of personal stuffs. Don’t overbuy or over purchase items which will end up being a waste of money and resources. Always buy what will suffice and save a lot of resources and money which can be channeled into your business for progress.
SAVE AGAINST TOMORROW.
Save and invest your money and profits you gain from your business. Fine, you may need some money for personal expenditure but you need to save the excess and not waste it in order for it to be used in the future. Just like how we have the Coronavirus pandemic with us, how were we going to survive if we didn’t have saved. Saving as an entrepreneur is very essential.
LEARN TO SAY NO.
Learn to say no when certain suggestions and proposals don’t go in your favor and in that of your business. Learn to say no then later reconsider if there’s a need to do what you supposed to do then you do it, otherwise don’t at all. This doesn’t make you rude, the fact is it doesn’t reach your demand and doesn’t favor you and your business.
INVEST IN YOUR WOMAN.
Don’t be stingy with your woman. Invest in her . Buy her things that will make her feel happy. That will bring her peace of mind and she will be willing to support you regardless. She should be good looking and all her basic needs should be sorted out.
CUT OFF EXTERNAL PRESSURES FROM FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
Cut off external pressures from friends and family. Some friends and family may give you external pressures like forcing you to go somewhere with them, forcing you to do something you don’t want to do etc. Cut off such pressures especially when they have the potential to flop your business and kill your dreams and aspirations.
