It’s a long day in the office. You look forward to going home, because you can then work on your new UK small business. Half an hour later, you get home, all amped up. But before this excitement gets the better of you, have you thought about the right attitudes?
Having the right attitudes is everything in business.
When you want to start your own UK small business, keep this in mind. How you think is as important as what you do. When thought and action align, you are on the path to success. And because it’s only you who can make your business succeed, it’s all the more important.
Remember these 3 must-have attitudes before you get your business going.
Angela Duckworth, whom you might know from a TED talk she gave, defines grit as “perseverance and passion for long-term goals”. Any entrepreneur who wants to see himself succeed must develop this grit.
Business is about doing the work. This work may include repetitive, boring, or uninspiring things. If you give up because of these, you’ll never reach your long-term goals. Thus, you have to keep doing the work no matter what.
2. Delayed Gratification
Your new UK small business won’t make millions tomorrow. It won’t make millions next month. In fact, it may not even make millions next year. That’s the reality.
Businesses take time to grow and earn. They’re like trees. For trees to grow, you have to water them, trim them, and till the soil. And it takes years before the tree grows to full form.
Knowing this, you must manage your expectations. Yes, the money will come, but not right away. Patience is key here. If you give up too soon, you’ll never see the money.
Gary Vaynerchuk, the well-known vlogger/CEO, always says that he values empathy. He cares about both his clients and employees. In other words, he cares about people.
Business is also about dealing with people, so being kind is important. No entrepreneur can succeed without good people skills. You must build good relationships, both with your clients and employees. Because without them, your business is nothing.
Have you taken the right attitudes to heart yet? Once you have, you’re ready to lay down the foundations of your new UK small business.
