Are You a Star?

I love reading biographies especially about old bands that I used to follow as a kid. KISS is one of those bands and I have read most of the biographies from the band. I am currently reading the new release from Paul Stanley the front man of the band and although it talks about the antics of the band it also talks about focus. I have a few friends in the music industry and many of them talk about luck, the big break, or being in the right place at the right time. Some also talk about the work, the headaches, bad bars and so on. That is where the difference is between getting so far and being successful. The same thing happens to entrepreneurs, many want the dream, but they get to the headaches and hard work and it overtakes them. They lose their focus. The successful entrepreneurs or stars have such a strong focus that they will break through anything to reach that area of success.

So do you think of yourself as a star? Do you have the focus to take you through the hard work phase and the headache phase? Do you have the drive to take your business to the next level? I am not suggesting that you don’t have a job to help bring in money into the household, but you need to keep focusing on the true dream. You need to get started and keep honing the operation to where it works like a well oiled machine and that may take years, but you need to keep at it. There will be luck involved, there will be being at the right place at the right time, but there will also be focus that will help get you through. Think like a star, don’t ever let go of your dream, and you too will be successful. Go ahead, try it!
