Hey! it’s my first blog post! Do I hear you say “congratulations”? Well, thank you and I am glad to have you around.
I want this blog to be one of the best resourceful and the most helpful blogs online for a very long time.
However, I need to have a strong beginning to achieve this uphill task. I must get it right from the start by putting in the needed hard work.
Unfortunately, starting well doesn’t mean I won’t have some not-too-impressive days.
I know I’m prone to experiencing some downtime and challenges at some point. Hence, I think “preparing for such bad days” should be included in my starter’s checkbox.
Oh, forgive me for making this post looks like it’s all about me and my new blog… I’m excited and nervous at the same time, so I feel like sharing my thoughts and expectations with you will ease the pressure (at least a bit).
Well, that’s all about me! Let’s talk about YOU! YES, YOU!
Are you thinking of starting a new project, career, or assignment but don’t know how to start, or what to expect? Are you afraid of what the future holds for your soon-to-be-launched business?
It’s okay to feel that way, but you don’t have to! All you need is a strong start. Lay a solid foundation for your new business or career, and see how things will turn out.
Talking of a strong start, below are some of the six ways to begin a new thing in life
1. Develop A Winning Mindset And Superior Belief System
Nothing makes you a winner like having a winner’s mindset. Nothing gives you a victorious life like seeing yourself as an unstoppable goal-getter.
Your chances of being a failure or success all go down to your belief system and mindset.
You first have to picture yourself being successful in your latest establishment before applying the required efforts.
You must learn to believe everything is possible as that is the only way to motivate and inspire yourself in your quest for greatness in an unfamiliar place or business setting.
Talking of developing a successful mindset, the five ways to develop a positive mindset are:
* Loving Yourself
* Exploring Positive Affirmations
* Staying with lovely and inspiring people who believe in you and
* Being grateful
* Being active / Engaging in regular exercise
Meanwhile, the best ways to develop a good belief system are:
* Thinking positively
* Becoming a goal-getter
* Appreciating the people around you
* Being grateful for what you have
* Keeping good company
* Ensuring good health
Trust me you are 50% successful in your new career or project if you develop a sound mindset. This is because nothing will be too strong to stop you once you have made up your mind to be successful in the new field you find yourself
2. Expect some setbacks
As I mentioned earlier, I am excited about the future of my blog. I know I will achieve my target, but I don’t rule out the chances of experiencing setbacks at some point.
Though people often see this as finding an excuse for failure, the truth is I am being factual with myself.
We can’t enjoy the good side of life without experiencing the ugly part of it; therefore I advise you remain true to yourself when diving into a new career or venture.
Expect the good times and prepare for a few setbacks that will surely arrive along the way.
The earlier you prepare yourself for future setbacks, the faster you will overcome them when they eventually occur.
3. Set Realistic Goals For Your New Venture
Let me briefly tell you that my first goal for this blog is getting at least 5,000 readers in the first month.
Some will say “that’s a cheap target”, while others might think it is a huge task. To me, that’s a realistic goal I can achieve with hard work and dedication. (You can help me achieve this goal by visiting regularly and sharing my post on your Social Media platforms)
You too should set a goal for yourself. What do you intend to achieve within a specific period? Write them down now!
Your goals must be simple and realistic. Make it as simple as “I want to become a doctor in 10 years”
However, don’t be too ambitious that you set some goals that you can’t achieve even if there are 26 hours in a day.
4. Prioritize Your New Venture
Yes, you have other things to settle — your spouse, children, mother, spiritual life, among other things; but your new venture must be your priority.
Does it mean you should neglect other aspects of Life? No. All I’m saying is you must be committed and determined in your desire to thrive in your new assignment.
That brings us to time management! Endeavor to find the best way to effectively explore the 24 hours in a day. Luckily, a to-do list will help you out in this regard.
The importance of a to-do list can’t be over-emphasized as it helps you complete numerous tasks within a set period.
Apart from enhancing your productivity, a to-do list helps you live an organized life. It makes you stay focused and committed.
With a to-do list, you will know the exact time length to spend on your new project or career without affecting other day-to-day activities. You can read Ibebit’s Five reasons why you should have a to-do list
5. Learn From Experts In Your New Field
Subscribing to a mentorship package will undoubtedly quicken your development and growth. Get a mentor with laudable years of experience and a high success rate; learn from him and you will surely enhance your growth in no time.
This is because you will be tutored and shown how to do things to achieve your desired results. Meanwhile, other importance of having a mentor are:
* Mentors are regular sources of inspiration and encouragement
* Mentors help you remain accountable, disciplined, and determined
* Mentors create connections with other experts to enhance your growth
* Mentors provide guidance and support
* They offer unbiased and constructive feedback about your progress and development. Ensure you click here to read more on mentorship.
6. Relax and Learn As Events Unfold
Finally, relax and enjoy! Don’t overthink anything. Create a working strategy, stick to it, relax and watch how events unfold.
Though you might need to change your approach at some point, ensure you are not too hard on yourself if even things don’t work out as planned in the beginning.
Remain dedicated, determined, and inspired to give all you’ve got towards achieving your set target.
It’s okay to plan before you dive into your new venture. However, ensure you don’t take forever planning because overplanning is bad.
