The Entrepreneur’s Source Provides 3 Tips for Achieving Self- Sufficiency in 2015

Although January has passed, many of us are still pondering our New Year’s resolution. Some resolutions are small, like wanting to eat more vegetables or ridding yourself of a bad habit. But some resolutions are bigger goals and may seem harder to tackle, like wanting to spend more time with your family or striving to become self-sufficient. For many people, resolutions are just thoughts and are never achieved, but if you wish to turn your thoughts into action, then read this article carefully.

If you’re looking to try and achieve a larger goal of becoming self-sufficient, then now’s the time to explore Your Career 2.0 so 2015 can be the year you take control of your career. Today, The Entrepreneur’s Source provides these aspiring individuals with 3 tips for how to start exploring your options.

Three Tips to Start Exploring Your Possibilities, Options and Dreams

1. Establish and write down specific goals

Research shows that when we set goals, we’re more likely to achieve them. In fact, just by writing down a goal, you will be 42 percent more likely to achieve it than not writing it down, a recent study by Dominican University found.

However, we’re not suggesting for you to write the same goals you’ve been looking to achieve year after year. Tackling these goals of years past the same way will only cause frustration, a recipe for disaster. Instead, try establishing a set of more specific goals – your Primary Aim for success. Your Primary Aim is all about what you truly want for yourself. Start by making a list of what you know you don’t want, what you do want and what may be getting in your way of achieving this.

Start by establishing your Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity (I.L.W.E.™) Goals. What kind of lifestyle do you wish to be living? What kind of income do you desire to achieve? What kind of wealth and equity would you like to have built up? Once these have been established, it will be easier for an individual to determine how he or she can get there. Make sure to write all of this down. By clarifying these more specific goals for the upcoming year, it will be easier for you to envision how you can achieve them by the end of 2015.

2. Take your blinders off

Chances are that you probably don’t have much experience in determining what options and possibilities are out there. Don’t let starting from square one scare you away from achieving your dreams. Begin by just looking into the basics that go into becoming self-sufficient in your career and really contemplate if they seem viable for you.

Most people think that finding the right business will be like falling in love – I have no idea what I’m looking for but I’ll know it when I see it. Instead of taking this matchmaking viewpoint, individuals should begin to view business as a vehicle to accomplish their I.L.W.E.™Goals. This includes a complete paradigm shift, but doing so can help you see possibilities where they could not see them before. A business is just a vehicle to help you get to where you’d like to be, where the product or service can oftentimes become irrelevant. Once you begin to shift your mindset to seeing business as just a vehicle, you may find yourself getting excited about opportunities you would never have previously considered – expanding your options and making your goals closer within your reach.

3. Consult with an alternative career coach

There’s no shame in asking for help, especially when we’re talking about a big life decision such shifting careers and looking for way to attaining your I.L.W.E.™Goals. Consider scheduling an appointment with an alternative career coach at The Entrepreneur’s Source. E-Source coaches can help you discover your Possibilities, Options and Dreams (POD) by taking you through a Discovery Process.

When engaging a coach, you will work together to talk about what you’d like your future to look like, what goals they have for yourself, what income or lifestyle you are desiring along with many other factors. After analyzing these, you will reach a point of clarity about what unique opportunity is right for you. After consulting with an alternative career coach at The Entrepreneur’s Source, 95 percent of these individuals discover options they would have never looked at or prematurely dismissed, which in part can help you take your blinders off.

Make your resolution this year take your desire to become a business owner seriously, and start exploring your potential business ownership opportunities today.
