Language. Words we use to communicate with each other. Different “circles” speak a common vernacular. From business professionals to everyday ordinary people, each group understands the usage of their commonly used terms. As you grow, your social interactions shift some and may altogether.
Typical 9 to 5 workers share one common thread: arrive to work and complete another’s dream or idea. They have a job to finish, get paid weekly, bi-weekly or monthly, and usually, do not have enough left for spending.
Unless your upbringing included entrepreneurial surroundings, you probably witnessed people working a full-time job for a company. This experience becomes natural behavior. You come to understand and accept a job as the norm, which in some realities, it is. But to the person who had boss-type figures around him or her, s/he has a different worldview.
Most CEO’s and Founders alike began building businesses at very young ages. They automatically have a keener awareness because of seeing how things run first handed, per se. Another instance is that some of them began selling things as young as six or seven years old. Also, some start in middle school or high school. Ever listen to guest speakers? Many mention how they started their first business as a such and such at such and such age.
Birds of the same feather flock together. This old saying with much meaning stands true today. The key to people of this caliber is their ability to have a common goal but learn enough from each other’s actions to attain them. Bosses must use and grasp certain concepts, and languages to (1) communicate effectively, (2) learn specific strategies and tools for sales and marketing, and (3) maintain or grow to more than five figures per month.
But when an idea pops into the mind, you suddenly make plans to pursue it. The game changes per se. Those around you may or may not support it. People who don’t support it are the ones who don’t grasp the concept of working for one’s self. All the brain knows is the 9 to 5 routine. You end up betwixt and between a rock and a hard place–often feeling limitless. Somewhere deep inside, however, you’re inclined to start your own, so you do.
You jump ALL IN excited. The idea could be a
start up business in areas like:
A new church
An outreach non-profit
Auto body shop
Mechanic shop for American or European Cars
just to name a few.
Starting the idea means your associates will not be the same. Get ready to not be in the same social places because of your idea’s formation process. The new plan begins to envelop how you see things. It transforms your thinking and better shapes your worldview. You become the idea. And, to keep this fit, centering yourself with keen mentors in your plan’s area, and like-minded entrepreneurs helps to keep you encouraged, motivated and inspired. In essence, you speak the same language. This commonality strengthens your core.
