Giving excuses while you are going in the wrong direction might feel good in the moment, but in the long term for sure it is not. Being disciplined enough in order to know when to stop giving excuses is required for your success and happiness.
We are all aware of the fact that under instant gratification everyone tends to assume a underestimated value of the risk to encounter.
Therefore, in order to avoid these types of mistakes and to become better as an entrepreneur or simply to improve yourself here's the 4 excuses that successful entrepreneurs never use:
1. "I deserve to be successful"
Could it be through justifying yourself working less than you should on your entrepreneurial ventures, buying things you do not need instead of investing back into your projects, taking out a bigger debt than you can afford or simply by not being focused on doing what you have to can cost you results and progress in the long term.
For sure we all deserve to have the right to work towards our success, but thinking and taking for granted that "I deserve to be successful" will strip you from the fire that you get within when you want to achieve this goal.
2. "I don't care what customers think"
Pay attention here, it is important to note that we can not please everyone, this is a fact, but in the case of entrepreneurs it is different. Every successful entrepreneur is always thinking "customer satisfaction" before profits.
In addition, your customers are your most valuable asset since they are the ones who will be giving you the best feedback on your products and services.
This feedback can literally be your ''success indicator'' in your projects. Value this feedback and show to your customers how valuable they are to your company and you'll for sure improve and get results in the long term.
3. "It's just a small detail nobody will care"
Of course this one is very important to understand in order to avoid falling in the perfectionism. As an explanatory example take Mercedes Benz's "The Best Or Nothing" Saying. These previous words symbolize the importance of choosing only the best parts for their cars, training their employees to do the work in the best possible manner and finishing and providing their customers with prime quality products.
According to their saying, you understand that their final products undergo a verification procedure after every step of their production, and this is what makes their reputation so strong.
You too can bring to you or your brand "reputation points" by giving proper attention to every detail of your products or services.
4. "My idea will never work"
Have you ever seen these colorful cylindrical pieces of polyurethane called "pool noodles" used in swimming pools? Well, that was an interesting idea that investors had to analyze.
This one is one of the most self defeating excuses that any entrepreneur can ever give. do not use this excuse at any moment in your entrepreneurial journey. Any idea can work astonishingly well if nurtured and well planned.
The Important Take Away.
Most of the above excuses take away from you the wanting to act upon your ideas. second, they robs all of us from many quality inventions and solutions that can solve our problems.Third and finally it removes from you the potential of succeeding as an entrepreneur or an inventor. Find happiness through growing as a better entrepreneur, now that you know these, make sure to avoid them.
