Your solopreneur dreams are as realistic as the work you’re willing to put in. So how much work are you putting in?
You don’t have to do a lot, initially. But you do have to be consistent—think: daily. Devoting just thirty minutes a day to the pursuit of your solo entrepreneurial dreams will get you 100x farther in a year than going all out just one day a week.
Living at home after the age of 18 used to be an unthinkable shame. Guys jumped into manufacturing jobs straight out of highschool, women married young and parents were left at home to go about their lives.
Thankfully, times have changed. Domestic norms have relaxed, and assembly jobs are competing with the Dodo for the most boring thing in non-existence.
Today, if you’re under 30, and out of the nest, you’ve got it going on.
But regardless of all the benefits of incubating a bit longer – more time to discover yourself, less pressure to marry, etc. – solopreneur millennials are lacking one trait that will make or break our success:
My best days are always the ones I look back on and think, “I gave it everything I had.” I don’t need accolades. I don’t need someone else to make everything perfect. I just need to do my best, to do what I love, to relax and to know that I made a difference. And that’s something we can all do–every day!
Whether you want to be a writer, a teacher, a speaker, or an entrepreneur, you’ll struggle through a period of not actually being that thing while trying to fulfill the expectations of your role. It’s gut wrenching. It’s embarrassing. It’s totally exposed. And it’s absolutely necessary on your road to self improvement.
But it doesn’t have to last forever.
You can’t go into work anymore without a full-body shudder. The thought of doing whatever it is you’ve been doing for a couple years today is insufferable. The only way you’ve been able to get through the day is to fantasize about that big fat career change, and how much better life will be when you’re actually doing what you want.
Ugh. You know the feeling: the mounting dread, the creeping anxiety, the little voice in your head that scoffs, that says you can’t. Ugh… Here comes another weight loss promise.
Maybe you’ve broken one before. Maybe you’ve broken thirty. But you’re back at the starting line, again, and you’re here because you know this is the step you need to take for the life you want to live.
